Summary

From author Kia Abdullah, Take It Back is a harrowing and twisting courtroom thriller that keeps you guessing until the last page is turned.

One victim.
Four accused.
Who is telling the truth?

Zara Kaleel, one of London's brightest legal minds, shattered the expectations placed on her by her family and forged a brilliant legal career. But her decisions came at a high cost, and now, battling her own demons, she has exchanged her high profile career for a job at a sexual assault center, helping victims who need her the most. Victims like Jodie Wolfe.

When Jodie, a sixteen-year-old girl with facial deformities, accuses four boys in her class of an unthinkable crime, the community is torn apart. After all, these four teenage defendants are from hard-working immigrant families and they all have proven alibis. Even Jodie's best friend doesn't believe her.

But Zara does--and she is determined to fight for Jodie--to find the truth in the face of public outcry. And as issues of sex, race and social justice collide, the most explosive criminal trial of the year builds to a shocking conclusion.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Zara Kaleel is an independent sexual-violence adviser in London, where she works at Artemis House, a sexual-assault referral center. It's there that 16-year-old Jodie Wolfe is referred to Zara. The girl, who claims she has been raped by four boys from her school, suffers from neurofibromatosis and is horribly disfigured but has an unrequited crush on one of the boys, handsome, desirable Amir. Zara takes the case, but there's a wrinkle: Jodie is white, but the four boys, whose families are from South Asia, are Muslim, and so is Zara. Perhaps predictably, Zara is quickly branded a traitor to her people and is greeted by angry mobs every day when the case goes to trial. But it's not for nothing that she is called Zara the Brave, not afraid to fly in the face of convention (she has left an arranged marriage, to the horror of her traditional family), adamantly refusing to abandon Jodie. But is the girl lying? The boys stoutly deny her allegation, and evidence seems to suggest they may be telling the truth. The story is principally told from Zara's point of view, although it visits those of other characters periodically. Abdullah has done an exemplary job of character development and is especially good at ratcheting up suspense as the trial proceeds; and the steadfast Zara proves the validity of her nickname."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Barrister Zara Kaleel, the heroine of this riveting, thought-provoking legal thriller from British author Abdullah (Child's Play), is a rising star in a prominent London law firm, until she decides to do something more meaningful: become an advocate for sexual abuse victims. Her first case in this new role involves four teenage boys, all English Muslims from East London, accused by their classmate Jodie Wolfe, a 16-year-old disabled white girl, of rape. That Zara is an English Muslim herself advocating against Muslim boys guarantees front-page attention. Zara is torn by her family's dismay over her role and her firm belief in Jodie, even though Jodie's alcoholic mother and best friend don't believe the girl. The residents of East London, immigrants and poor native born, each come across as distinct individuals. In the courtroom, shifting testimony and constant new revelations reveal the humanity--good and bad--of all participants. Readers may find themselves believing one side, then the other, up until the shocking ending. Abdullah is definitely a writer to watch. Agent: Jessica Faust, BookEnds Literary. (Dec.)"
