Hello Gemmies! I have an exciting new cover reveal for you today. You Truly Assumed by Laila Sabreen is a new contemporary young adult novel. After a terrorist attack rocks the country and anti-Islamic sentiment stirs, three Black Muslim girls create a space where they can shatter assumptions and share truths. You Truly Assumed is sure to be thought provoking and poignant. I absolutely adore this cover. It is really gorgeous. The colors are bold, bright, and engaging. I can't wait to add this gem to my collection!
Sabriya has her whole summer planned out in color-coded glory, but those plans go out the window after a terrorist attack near her home. When the terrorist is assumed to be Muslim and Islamophobia grows, Sabriya turns to her online journal for comfort. You Truly Assumed was never meant to be anything more than an outlet, but the blog goes viral as fellow Muslim teens around the country flock to it and find solace and a sense of community.
Soon two more teens, Zakat and Farah, join Bri to run You Truly Assumed and the three quickly form a strong friendship. But as the blog’s popularity grows, so do the pushback and hateful comments. When one of them is threatened, the search to find out who is behind it all begins, and their friendship is put to the test when all three must decide whether to shut down the blog and lose what they’ve worked for…or take a stand and risk everything to make their voices heard.
Published by Inkyard Press, You Truly Assumed is set to release February 08, 2022, and is available for pre-order from all major booksellers. Are you looking forward to reading this book? Let me know what you think by leaving a comment below. Happy Reading!
