Really enjoyed Djamila Morani's novella. Morani is a young Algerian author who writes in Arabic.
Tufah el-Djinn is set in Baghdad during the Abbasid period. A 12-year old girl who has witnessed the assassination of her family and escapes is faced with two choices: let herself die or get better to find out why her father became such a threat and to whom.
