Tahereh Mafi has entered a new phase. The 30-year-old Iranian-American author of the bestselling YA fantasy series Shatter Me is branching out with her next book, A Very Large Expanse Of Sea, which will be published by Harper Collins later this year.

Set in the United States following the 9/11 terror attacks in New York City and Washington in 2001, the standalone novel follows the story of hijab-wearing Muslim teen Shirin, based on Mafi’s own experiences.
