Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners . To take part, simply choose a random book from your TBR and show it off. Be sure to check out Lauren’s blog too!!
Today the book I’m going to show off is :
Take It Back by Kia Abdullah
Published August 8, 2019 by HarperCollins Publishers
The Victim: A sixteen-year-old girl with facial deformities, neglected by an alcoholic mother. Who accuses four boys of something unthinkable.
The Defendants: Four handsome teenage boys from hardworking immigrant families. All with corroborating stories.
Someone is lying.
Former barrister Zara Kaleel, one of London’s brightest young legal minds, takes up Jodie Wolfe’s case; she believes her, even if those closest to Jodie do not.
Jodie and Zara become the centre of the most explosive criminal trial of the year, in which ugly divisions within British society are exposed. As everything around Zara begins to unravel she becomes even more determined to get Jodie the justice she’s looking for. But at what price?
This sounds like it is going to be a very intense and emotional read. I’m hoping to start reading it very soon. I have a feeling it’s going to be hard to put down.
Have you read this book? Are you planning on reading it?
I’d love to hear your thoughts!
