Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Many boys Rana's age would have shared the same feelings dealing with discrimination and could easily relate to Rana. Shabash! would make a great addition to a classroom, sparking many interesting discussions. The story not only deals with prejudice but also with how feelings and actions can cause reactions and how we can make a difference just by accepting others as they are. CM Magazine

    Marvelous

    This book really helps the reader understand the difficulties that different cultures/relions and their followers face when they immigrate to another country.It touched my heart and inspired me to write a sequel to it for my university. It is a book that I will always remember and cherish. 'Shabash, Ann Walsh, Shabash!'
