The Tyrant's Daughter Releases Today

So I got this book as an ARC from Netgalley and I just wanted to point out that it releases today plus it is actually a very good book and a bit different from what I normally read so I wanted to just throw that out there in case anyone is looking for a book to read! I'll have a review later this week for it!

The Tyrant's Daughter by J.C. Carleson

Summary: From a former CIA officer comes the riveting account of a royal Middle Eastern family exiled to the American suburbs

When her father is killed in a coup, 15-year-old Laila flees from the war-torn middle east to a life of exile and anonymity in the U.S. Gradually she adjusts to a new school, new friends, and a new culture, but while Laila sees opportunity in her new life, her mother is focused on the past. She’s conspiring with CIA operatives and rebel factions to regain the throne their family lost. Laila can’t bear to stand still as an international crisis takes shape around her, but how can one girl stop a conflict that spans generations? 

J.C. Carleson delivers a fascinating account of a girl—and a country—on the brink, and a rare glimpse at the personal side of international politics.
