This week I am waiting on
Forward Me Back to You by Mitali Perkins
Publication Date: April 2nd, 2019
Katina King is the reigning teen jujitsu champion of Northern California, but she’s having trouble fighting off the secrets in her past.
Robin Thornton was adopted from an orphanage in Kolkata, India and is reluctant to take on his future. Since he knows nothing about his past, how is he supposed to figure out what comes next?
Robin and Kat meet in the most unlikely of places — a summer service trip to India to work with survivors of human trafficking. As bonds blossom between the travel-mates, Robin and Kat discover the healing superpowers of friendship.
At turns heart-wrenching, beautiful, and buoyant, Mitali Perkins’ new novel explores the ripple effects of violence — across borders and generations — and how small acts of heroism can break the cycle.
Do I even have to explain to you guys why I am so excited for this book? This book sounds incredibly moving and I am all for small acts of heroism and healing superpowers of friendship. I love the sound of this book and I can’t wait to read it.
What’s your most anticipated book?
