About this deal

Although the novel has considerable fun with familiar horror tropes the various Fear Tests tested my patience and I cared little for these spoilt posh rich kids, with even Rachel letting her old best friend down. I could not put the book down even though it was keeping me up at night thinking about what I had just read.

He was in favor of revenge, while Hezni, who was over a decade older and the most empathetic of us all, thought it was too dangerous.

This is a courageous memoir that serves as an important step toward holding to account those who committed horrific crimes. Enforced accountability for war criminals who engage in sexual violence, she insists, could serve to deliver justice for survivors. Maybe they thought it was just a petty squabble between villages, not the reason Masoud Barzani, the president of the Kurdistan Regional Government, had sent them out of the safety of Kurdistan and into the unprotected areas of Iraq. I think the underlying message is clear: sexual violence and genocide perpetrated in times of war, when victims are at their most vulnerable shows humanity's most despicable side.

They wanted to man the checkpoints, and Ahmed Jasso’s brother Naif tried to convince Kurdish authorities to let him form a Yazidi peshmerga unit, but he was ignored. I’ve probably sold it to you already, I know, but I guess I’d better expand a little on what makes it so amazing – readers seem to expect it! At a time when teenagers are binging Friends episodes and rocking mom jeans, it makes perfect sense to release a book channeling the gleeful genre self-awareness of Scream, one of the nineties’ most iconic films. This book tackles some complex ideas, about owning fear, human nature, and what it means to belong, with a deliciously dark undertone that perfectly matches the pacy plot.Still, most families in Kocho kept weapons at home—clunky Kalashnikov rifles, a big knife or two usually used to slaughter animals on holidays. It's easy to turn our heads the other way because we don't want to acknowledge the gruesome reality that is some people's lives.
