Made It To Bustle's Best 13 YA Books List

Bustle.com listed Bitter Almonds in their January 2016's 13 best YA books to read when the snow inevitably falls:

"...[L]ilas Taha's moving story Bitter Almonds finally makes its way to the U.S., and it couldn't be at a more appropriate time. The story chronicles the lives of Palestinian exiles in Damascus looking back to 1948 Jerusalem and extending over two decades. In particular, Taha tells us about Omar and Nadia, a Palestinian orphan and a young refugee in Damascus, respectively. And because Taha grew up in Kuwait to a Syrian mother and a Palestinian father, exile is part of her own history and she keenly understands the tragedy, sadness,and pieces of hope that come along with it."
