In April of 2007, 17-year-old Du'a Khalil Aswad was stoned to death.

Friend Requests: I am really happy to accept new friends, however there is a challenge question. I realize it sounds bitchy, but I don't like author spam any more than any other reader. I ignore requests that don't respond to the challenge question (unless I *actually* know you in some capacity).

Please don't spam me with invitations to read your book. Thanks.
