The Tyrant's Daughter (YA)


Book #21 Read in 2015
The Tyrant's Daughter by J.C. Carleson (YA)

Written by a former undercover CIA agent, this book details the escape of Laila, her younger brother who is now King, and her mother from a Middle Eastern country after her father, the former ruler, is killed.  It shows the difficulty of assimilating to a new culture and how hard it is to let traditions go.  It also shows that one does not need to physically be in a country in order to be able to manipulate what happens in that country.  Laila is an interesting and intelligent character.  The writing flows well and it is a quick, good read.  I recommend it.
