Sikander by M. Salahuddin Khan (Feature and Giveaway)

This is an unique post because it is one of the first author/books that I have featured that will also be at the bookstore I work at.

JKS Communications is a literary publicity firm that I have worked with during Sandra Brannan's blog tours and have had the pleasure of meeting Marissa and Sami at BEA last year. They are wonderfully smart, passionate folks who are talented in their book advocacy.

When offered the chance to read and review another author they represent, I was hesistant due to my busy schedule. But I knew I could atleast feature it and also mention the author's book signing at the store I work at.

Marissa has also been kind enough to offer a copy to giveaway. Please take a peak at the description and enter if you are interested.

Also, if you live in the Twin Cities area, stop by Magers and Quinn Booksellers to meet the author.

Book Description from Goodreads:
It's 1986, a time when Ronald Reagan's commitment to the mujahideen of Afghanistan is steadfast. It leads 17 year-old Pakistani student, Sikander, to admire just about everything American and while yearning for the freedom of his ethnic Pashtun brethren in Afghanistan, he also longs to study and live in America. But when Sikander shames his family by being naively indiscreet about their financial difficulties, the resulting verbal lashing from his mother and overbearing father, who also strikes him physically, provokes Sikander into leaving the comfort of his upper middle-class Peshawar life.
