“Monster Child” is a new book releasing in May 2021 by recent LLED PhD and BEd graduate Rahela Nayebzadah, with publisher Wolsak and Wynn. She worked closely with Drs. Carl Leggo and Theresa Rogers while studying in UBC.
In a powerful debut novel author Rahela Nayebzadah introduces three unforgettable characters, Beh, Shabnam and Alif. In a world swirling with secrets, racism and a touch of magic we watch through the eyes of these three children as Nayebzadah’s family of Afghan immigrants try to find their way in an often uncaring society.
