A free Adam and Zayneb story!

description/> <br /><br />Due to Eid happiness and due to many reader requests to learn more of what happened before the epilogue in <a href=Love From A to Z by S.K. Ali
I'm sharing an Adam and Zayneb Eid story! It tells of a time before the epilogue and is definitely a bit more mature of a YA than my previous novels (so please only access according to your comfort factor!).

“Maybe that's what living is--recognizing the marvels and oddities around you.”
S.K. Ali, Love From A to Z

“The truth does not change according to our ability to stomach it.”
S.K. Ali, Saints and Misfits

“The world is a mysterious place. On the one hand, its size can be measured and recorded and verified. Its marvels and oddities captured in complex, empirical detail.
On the other hand, its size is relative to our mind’s perception of it. Its marvels and oddities only extending to how far our vision goes.
For some of us, this means the world is small, including only those we see as belonging to it. People related to us, people who look like us, dress like us, think like us.
For others, it’s medium-size and includes those we connect to through some similarity, some trait that pings familiarity within, which then allows us to overlook the differences between us and them.
And then there are those who see the world as huge, as the actual size it measurably is.
Huge enough to include vast differences, people with nothing in common with one another except a beating heart and a feeling soul, these two—heart, soul—being the strongest connection between us all.”
S.K. Ali, Love From A to Z
