Giveaway II - Stained by Abda Khan

So, we recently hit 10,000 views! We're really happy with this and so grateful to you all, especially as we're still quite a new blog. As a thank you, we wanted to give something back, so we've got a really exciting giveaway for you all and yes, it's international...

+ we're giving away a signed copy of Stained by Abda Khan, along with a bookmark! +

Here's a little about the book:
'Selina, a beautiful, British-born Pakistani young woman recently lost her father, and finds herself struggling to cope with life, in particular with some aspects of her studies. Matters go from bad to worse, when a trusted family friend from the mosque offers to tutor her, and rapes her instead. With the threat of dishonour to her family at her back, Selina goes to extreme lengths to avoid scandal, and prevent shame being brought to her widowed mother’s door. It will take all the strength and courage Selina can muster when her life travels down a dangerous path, from which there may be no return…'

Stained is a debut, diverse novel from an own-voice author, focusing important issues. We're so excited to have been able to work with Abda Khan to give one of you a signed copy of this book so go and show her some love and support!
