We are delighted to announce that Randa Abdel-Fattah has been nominated for the 2017 Astrid Lindgren award !
Randa, a former litigation lawyer, is an award winning author of nine books for children and young adults. Her best-selling DOES MY HEAD LOOK BIG IN THIS? has sold into 12 territories and is currently optioned for a feature film.
Randa’s latest work, WHEN MICHAEL MET MINA, tells the story of what happens when the worlds of a refugee from Afghanistan and a privately educated Australian schoolboy collide.
Readers say: ‘When Michael Met Mina is not only one of the most important books I’ve read recently, but also one of the most poignant and heartbreaking and ultimately spirit- and soul-lifting books I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading.’
