Azra has just turned sixteen, and overnight her body lengthens, her olive skin deepens, and her eyes glisten gold thanks to the brand-new silver bangle that locks around her wrist. As she always knew it would, her Jinn ancestry brings not just magical powers but the reality of a life of servitude, as her wish granting is controlled by a remote ruling class of Jinn known as the Afrit. To the humans she lives among, she's just the girl working at the snack bar at the beach, navigating the fryer and her first crush. But behind closed doors, she's learning how to harness her powers and fulfill the obligations of her destiny. Mentored by her mother and her Zar "sisters," Azra discovers she may not be quite like the rest of her circle of female Jinn . . . and that her powers could endanger them all.
I’m so excited to share the dreamy mood board I created recently that was inspired by Becoming Jinn. One thing I loved about this book was the it was set in a coastal Massachusetts town, which just so happens to be MY neck of the woods. I drew on that theme and found some images that reminded me of some of my favorite beaches and summertime memories growing up as a New England beach bum. I also found some really great images to tie in that really bring out the fantasy elements of Becoming Jinn. I think these two elements of the book combined beautifully in the image I created below, and can really give you a sense and feel of the story Lori Goldstein created.
While I was making my board, I absolutely fell in love with that little genie lamp necklace and thought it would be a fun little giveaway to include with today’s post. So, be sure to enter below for a chance to win your own little piece of genie magic!
