Attic of Sand and Secrets

My blog friend, Medeia Sharif has a new book out:  The Attic of Sand and Secrets.  It sounds really awesome!  I'll be reading it shortly, and then I'll post a review.



THE ATTIC OF SAND AND SECRETS 
by Medeia Sharif

Middle Grade Historical and Fantasy, Featherweight Press, November 2014

Lily, a learning disabled girl, attempts to unravel the mystery of her abducted mother using supernatural clues from an ancient stranger, even when it means posing a danger to herself.

Learning-disabled Lily desires to prove herself, although her mind freezes when presented with big problems - such as her mother's abduction. With a French father and Egyptian mother, Lily worries that her mother hid her ethnicity from her French in-laws. However, there's something deeper going on. Lily finds a way into an attic that's normally locked and encounters a mysterious, moonlit Egyptian night world. There she finds Khadijah, an ancient stranger who guides her to finding clues about her mother's whereabouts. Lily becomes a sleuth in both the real world and magical desert, endangering herself as she gets closer to the kidnapper.

The book takes place in 1976. Every host for this book blast is going to post one fun fact for that year. For some of you, this will bring back memories. For younger blog readers, you'll learn something new.

1976 was the year Jimmy Carter was named Times Magazine's Man of the Year.

  8. 1976 was the year before I graduated from high school, a momentous occasion since I so rarely deigned to attend class.

    Love,
