Introducing A Love That Disturbs by Medeia Sharif

Medeia Sharif is one fierce writer. The way she manages her career makes her my hero! On top of that, her books always 100 percent kick butt. Here's her latest! It goes on sale today, so be sure to click over and buy your copy.





Blurb:

Maysa Mazari is alarmed by her mother’s talk about arranged marriage. As a hijab-wearing Pakistani-American, she wants to find love on her own. Her judgmental Muslim clique has protected her from racist taunts, although the leader is turning on her as Maysa strays from the group because of her attraction to Haydee.

Haydee Gomez is a former gang member and juvenile detention student. Now living with a clean-cut aunt, she wants to turn her life around, even though one person will never let her forget her roots—Rafe, her abusive pimp. Haydee attempts to pull away from a life of prostitution when she develops feelings for Maysa, although Rafe isn’t willing to give her up too easily.

Finding themselves in danger from Maysa’s friends and Haydee’s pimp, it’s apparent their love disturbs everyone around them as they fight to stay together.

Bio:

I was born in New York City and I presently call Miami my home. I received my master’s degree in psychology from Florida Atlantic University. After becoming a voracious reader in high school and a relentless writer dabbling in many genres in college, I found my niche writing for young people. Today I'm a MG and YA writer published through various presses. In addition to being a writer, I'm a public school teacher. My memberships include Mensa, ALAN, and SCBWI.

  10. Intriguing. A timely topic, given the Orlando shooting and rumors about the orientation of the shooter, and how it would have been viewed in his community.

    1. Oops, forgot to mention that I clicked on your giveaway, Stephanie, and only then realized that it's for readers in the US.

    2. Yeah, sorry about that! I used to leave it open internationally. I don't mind paying a fortune for postage, but our post office now requires their employees to type out the full return address and destination address while you're standing there, with the line building behind you and people glaring at you. Postal employees are one-finger typists and I've literally stood there for ten minutes while they typed all that up. I just can't take it!
