Waterstones Says

The acclaimed author of I Am Thunder returns with a searing page-turner about an ambitious schoolgirl journalist and the dangerous truths she is determined to expose.

Isn't the truth as simple as black and white? Mark My Words is the searing novel from Branford Boase Award-winner and 2020 World Book Day author Muhammad Khan, asking who you can trust when all you see is lies.

Fifteen-year-old Dua Iqbal has always had trouble minding her own business. With a silver-tongue and an inquisitive nature, a career in journalism seems fated. When her school merges with another to form an Academy, Dua seizes her chance and sets up a rival newspaper, exposing the controversial stories that teachers and the kids who rule the school would rather keep buried.

Dua's investigations are digging up things she shouldn't get involved with about family, friends and her community and as exams rattle towards her, she needs to make some hard decisions about when to leave things alone. But when she discovers that some kids at school are being blamed for selling drugs when the real perpetrator is right in front of their noses, she can't keep quiet any longer.

A brilliant and powerful story that kept me on the edge of my seat. The protagonist is extremely compelling and relatable, a warrior through and through - you'll root for Dua the entire way! A bold and timely book about protest and finding your voice. A story about privilege, segregation and the power of the truth A compelling YA thriller. A powerful page turner Muhammed Khan’s second novel is engaging, provocative and empathetic. Tackling themes of racial intolerance, community integration, protest and the importance of finding, of having a voice, not stone is left unturned, no topic off limits.
