NYC BOOK LAUNCH | Featuring Love From Mecca to Medina by S.K. ALI!
LAUNCH EVENT! Featuring Love From Mecca to Medina by S.K. ALI!
Root for the couple enchanting every YA reader worldwide! Check out Love From Mecca to Medina, the impeccable sequel to S.K. ALI's instant bestseller, Love from A to Z. Join us at Books of Wonder on 17th Street to celebrate the Live Launch of this fantastic title!
Adam is in Doha, Qatar, making a map of the Hijra, a historic migration from Mecca to Medina, and worried about where his next paycheck will come from. Zayneb is in Chicago, where school and extracurricular stresses are piling on top of a terrible frenemy situation, making her miserable.
Then a marvel occurs: Adam and Zayneb get the chance to spend Thanksgiving week on the Umrah, a pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina, in Saudi Arabia. Adam is thrilled; it’s the reboot he needs and an opportunity to pray for a hijra in real life: to migrate to Zayneb in Chicago. Zayneb balks at the trip at first, having envisioned another kind of vacation, but then decides a spiritual reset is calling her name too. And they can’t wait to see each other—surely, this is just what they both need.
But the trip is nothing like what they expect, from the appearance of Adam’s former love interest in their traveling group to the anxiety gripping Zayneb when she’s supposed to be “spiritual.” As one wedge after another drives them apart while they make their way through rites in the holy city, Adam and Zayneb start to wonder: was their meeting just an oddity after all? Or can their love transcend everything else like the greatest marvels of the world?
RSVP to join us for this can't-miss discussion with S.K. ALI and fellow YA great E. LOCKHART, the author of the bestselling We Were Liars series! Be sure to get all the Signed & Personalized books you need at Books of Wonder just in time for Love From Mecca to Medina's Launch Event. YA enthusiasts, we can't wait to see you there!
