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!
