BECOMING JINN

CIRCLE OF JINN

 

PRAISE for SOURCES SAY

“A timely and smart novel that examines the pernicious effects of fake news and what it means to be a feminist, and even better, a sister.
Lori Goldstein knows the teenage girl’s heart.”

STACEY LEE 

award-winning author of THE DOWNSTAIRS GIRL

“Alternating chapters between Angeline and Cat, this fun and provocative novel sees the sisters growing in their relationship while dealing with thorny issues of accountability, truth, enacting change, and the systemic sexism prevalent in their school. . . . Entertaining, thought-provoking, and heartwarming.”

KIRKUS REVIEWS
 

“A whip-smart, razor-sharp foray into school politics, friendship, family, and the nature of female ambition. 
Sources Say is savvy, heartfelt, and so very timely.”

LAURIE ELIZABETH FLYNN 
author of FIRSTS, LAST GIRL LIED TO, and ALL EYES ON HER 

 

“If there was ever a book for our time, this is it! Scandal, drama, romance, and fake news collide in this fun, clever, fast-paced read.”

JESSICA BRODY
bestselling author of THE CHAOS OF STANDING STILL, IN SOME OTHER LIFE, and A WEEK OF MONDAYS

She is the author of SOURCES SAY, which Kirkus calls "Entertaining, thought-provoking, and heartwarming"; SCREEN QUEENS, which Kirkus calls “a fun and uplifting story that celebrates female friendship and empowerment”; and the VOYA-starred young adult contemporary fantasy series BECOMING JINN.
