Welcome to WRITER WEDNESDAY! I’m pleased to announce the WINNER of our Medeia Sharif Book Contest Giveway Drawing! The winner will receive an autographed copy of Medeia Sharif’s debut YA novel BESTEST. RAMADAN. EVER. (Flux 2011). Congratulations!
I had posted a blog Q&A with the lovely MEDEIA SHARIF, whose debut novel BESTEST. RAMADAN. EVER. debuted this July 8, 2011 from Flux. It’s a hilarious and touching coming of age story about a young Muslim American teenager named Amira who’s trying her best to respect and obey her strict parents during Ramadan but also trying to catch the eye of a cute boy she likes named Peter who’s not only NOT Muslim, but also… gasp… an artist! BOOKLIST praised her book as ”upbeat and breezy… with a light tone and a focus on family, friends, and faith.” The complete Q&A blog link is here: http://paulayoo.com/blog/?p=521 For more info on Medeia Sharif, please visit her website here: http://www.medeiasharif.com/

Here’s me picking a winner…
