Praise for Kia Abdullah’s TAKE IT BACK

  • By: Jessica Faust | Date: Sep 11 2020

The BookEnds team has been ranting and raving about the amazing Kia Abdullah and her novel TAKE IT BACK for a while, now. It originally released in the UK, but we’re delighted to let you know that it will be releasing in the US on December 8th from St. Martin’s Press.

(Just in time to gift it to your mystery/thriller readers this holiday season, by the way!)

We’re not the only ones psyched about the release, though. Publisher’s Weekly gave Kia a STARRED review! Here’s what they had to say:

In the courtroom, shifting testimony and constant new revelations reveal the humanity—good and bad—of all participants. Readers may find themselves believing one side, then the other, up until the shocking ending. Abdullah is definitely a writer to watch.

-Publisher’s Weekly

But that’s not all! Booklist had wonderful things to say:

Abdullah has done an exemplary job of character development and is especially good at ratcheting up suspense as the trial proceeds; and the steadfast Zara proves the validity of her nickname.

–Michael Cart

And Book Riot included this fantastic legal thriller in an early review newsletter!

It’s never too early to pre-order your copy (and your friend’s copy) now! You can do that on Bookshop, or wherever you prefer to buy books.

And, congratulations, Kia!
