Congratulations to Susan Laidlaw!

Big congrats to Susan Laidlaw, one of my writing buddies from the MiG Writers. Her book, INFIDEL IN PARADISE, is to be published by Tundra Books! She even has a release date, which will be on Feb. 12, 2013.

Her YA is about a Canadian girl whose family moves to Pakistan. As attends the international school there, she deals with family adjustments and her own identity in living in a foreign country. And of course there's a romance that blooms between the main character and one of the Pakistani boys.

Susan currently teaches at a British school in Jakarta, Indonesia, but before that she taught in Pakistan which inspired her to write INFIDEL. Not only do I love Susan's writing, but she really captures the life of an expat and the students attending international schools. It's a true picture of the realities of living overseas. 

This is a book that I know you'll love and the ending... oh the ending... is a page turner. You won't be able to put it down!

At Green Gables, we believe education is a natural ‘give and take’ where we learn as much from children as they from us; that our children transform us as we transform them.
