  1. It would be absolutely amazing to read more YA that is modern, Arab and in Arabic. This specific age group has been suffering from the lack of books that are actually aimed at them, in Arabic I mean (while they can find all sorts of YA in English, imported from the states, the UK and Australia. What a shame, that we don’t do that a lot, really; it’s at this age that the person forms their literary opinions and tastes. And they wonder why we, as Arabs, don’t read as many books as the rest of the world) . So, I’m looking forward to reading more modern, Arab and Arabic YA.

    I would’ve participated if my Arabic writing skills were good enough (and if I was a year older), but, unfortunately (and fortunately at the same time. I mean, ROSIE, my novel, is due release this month) my English writing skills are much better and much more advanced.

    Good luck!
