Kirkus Reviews Featured Indie Book
It’s a scorching hot day, the kind of day that grows warmer when the gusts come. Lanna is learning to swim at the town pool where she befriends Sam. Meanwhile, her father, a scientist, is flirting with Sam’s mother, a redhead whose meticulous makeup paints a picture of Monet-like image. Shortly thereafter, Sam finds his parents dead.
MISSWIRED follows the interwoven trials and tribulations of Lanna and Sam, two acquaintances whose burgeoning friendship comes to a startling halt. Who killed Sam’s parents, and what becomes of Lanna and Sam twenty years later?
“Makhmali’s smart debut has a unique style and structure that is held together by vivid characterization … the emotions play out wonderfully. –Kirkus Reviews
“If you believe that the universe helps us when we realize that we've been (as Makhmali's pun intends) "misswired" and are open to connectivity again, then this novel is your spiritual cup of tea and then some. –The Jersey Journal
