As my first middle grade read of 2017 I was eager to choose something unique, something that was refreshing and new and would breath new life into the world of children's books. The Gauntlet by Karuna Riazi, which also happens to be my first read from Simon & Schusters new Salaam Reads imprint, was an absolute must. It checked off everything I was looking for in a book, and after hearing all the pre-release praise from some of my favourite authors, I couldn't wait to instantly dive into it.
