About the Book:

The Djinn's Apple
by Djamila Morani
Publication: February 29, 2024
Publisher: Neem Tree Press
Genre: YA Fiction

Winner of an English PEN Translates Award (Winter/Spring 2021).

Historical fiction meets crime fiction in The Djinn’s Apple, an award-winning YA murder mystery set in the Abbasid period—the golden age of Baghdad.

A ruthless murder. A magical herb. A mysterious manuscript.

When Nardeen’s home is stormed by angry men frantically in search of something—or someone—she is the only one who manages to escape. And after the rest of her family is left behind and murdered, Nardeen sets out on an unyielding mission to bring her family’s killers to justice, regardless of the cost…

Full of mystery and mayhem, The Djinn’s Apple is perfect for fans of Arabian Nights, City of Brass, and The Wrath and the Dawn.


"The themes of political turmoil, trust, feminism, grief and family secrets are well handled and will promote a lot of discussion and debate."
-Beth's Bookcase
"From the bustling streets of Abbasid Baghdad to the quiet corners of Nardeen's world, every detail is meticulously crafted and thought out."
