book giveaway!

And all you have to do to enter is tell them a fairy story in 100 words or less!

Here's mine:



    Faiz sees the perie the night after his grandfather’s janazah. She is standing beside the grave, but she’s not an angel. She has no wings.

    “You took them,” she says.

    When he was small, Faiz had torn off a firefly’s wings to see if he could steal the light from within it.

    “I’ll find them,” Faiz says. “I’ll give them back.”

    “You cannot,” says the perie, “Just as I cannot give you back what you have lost.”

    “But I can trade you this,” she says, reaching inside him, and Faiz feels himself light up, a starburst, from the inside out.
