Book Release: HOT PINK IN THE CITY by Medeia Sharif

I’m happy to be helping celebrate the book release for my online writer friend, Medeia Sharif. Her new contemporary YA novel, HOT PINK IN THE CITY, releases today, August 19th. CONGRATS, Medeia!!

Asma Bashir wants two things: a summer fling and her favorite '80s songs. During a trip to New York City to stay with relatives, she messes up in her pursuit of both. She loses track of the hunk she met on her airplane ride, and she does the most terrible thing she could possibly do to her strict uncle…ruin his most prized possession, a rare cassette tape.

A wild goose chase around Manhattan and Brooklyn to find a replacement tape yields many adventures—blackmail, theft, a chance to be a TV star, and so much more. Amid all this turmoil, Asma just might be able to find her crush in the busiest, most exciting city in the world.
