YA BOOK CLUB: AUGUST PICK

OUT OF HEART
IRFAN MASTER
Published by: Hot Key Books

This month’s selection has been made by NIKESH SHUKLA, author of the adrenaline-fuelled RUN, RIOT, which is out now.

Praise for Run, Riot: ‘Speaking up for what you believe in also drives Run, Riot the YA debut from Nikesh Shukla, editor of The Good Immigrant…Told from multiple viewpoints over the course of a single night, this electrifying thriller explores gentrification, corruption and community.‘ – Fiona Noble, The Observer 

Nikesh’s selection:

Irfan Master’s Out Of Heart is beautiful, heartwrenching tale of family and what we do for love, and what the cost of our choices is. It follows Adam and his relationship with William who has been gifted Adam’s father’s heart in a transplant, and what the novel tells us, about family, friendship, love, hope and adversity is that we can and will face these things together, and come what may, we’ll be together. And in this bleak world, knowing you’re not alone is more than enough.
