Since you have expressed an interest in own voices Young Adult novels, I would like to present my diverse YA thriller, HIDE ME AWAY. Complete at 62,000 words, this novel in which secrets from the past threaten to destroy an Indian-American orphan’s life will appeal to readers of Megan Miranda and Lauren Oliver.
Seventeen-year-old Tanvi has one wish—that her cousin would return home. Mimi vanished five years ago and has since been presumed dead. Until one day when Tanvi spots Mimi in her neighborhood. Any elation she feels turns to shock when Mimi attacks her. After Mimi frames her in a classmate’s death and then disappears again, Tanvi realizes her cousin isn’t craving a reunion—she’s out to destroy her.
When a knife bearing Tanvi’s fingerprints is found next to the classmate’s body, she becomes the primary suspect. To prove her innocence, she must smoke Mimi out into the open and convince the cops that the girl they’d presumed dead is very much alive. But, with Mimi in hiding again and the clues mounting against her, she has hours to prove her cousin is the real killer or risk losing her own life.
