The Next New Syrian Girl (2023)
Ream Shukairy
"Real, raw, and enthralling, Ream Shukairy crafts a moving story of friendship, redemption, and hope. You'll fall in love with Khadija and Leene and the journey they take toward each other."
As Long as the Lemon Trees Grow (2022)
Zoulfa Katouh
"As Long As the Lemon Trees Grow is hauntingly beautiful. Katouh masterfully tells a story that's both painful and captivating, you won't be able to put the book down. Her characters are so achingly real they'll live with you weeks after you've finished reading. The story manages to embrace fear in the time of war, love in spite of loss, and hope in the face of darkness. I cannot stress it enough, this book is a must read."
Like Home (2021)
Louisa Onomé
"Evocative and gratifyingly immersive, Like Home brings the idea of community to brilliant life. With expertly-drawn characters and a setting so alive it becomes another character we root for, Louisa Onome has written a celebration of the human capacity to find and re-find home."
