Hello, reader friends! It’s time for another special edition of First Line Fridays! This week in the United States we celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., to remember how far we have come, and to recognize how far we still need to press on towards the goal. As a small tribute, we are celebrating diversity with books!
Today’s featured book is one of my top favorites from 2017 and features an American heroine and Bedouin hero. The author crafts a wonderful story and knits together two cultures that often clash. I highly recommend it!
The Esther Paradigm by Sarah Monzon
“Hannah Pratt stared out across the grainy hills as the wind blew a gentle kiss over the crest. The laughing desert flitted away in a game of tag like she used to play at recess.“
