Guest author: Yecheilyah Ysrayl ~ NEW: Even Salt Looks Like Sugar: a novella

A new book by Yecheilyah Ysrayl…

Wanda wants nothing more than to escape the oppressive upbringing of life with her abusive foster mother. Miss Cassaundra manipulates the system by bringing lost children into her home turned whorehouse and collecting the money. Wanda knows what it’s like to be abandoned and has no doubt Abby is Cassaundra’s next case. When an opportunity arises, that could save them both, Wanda must find a way to get the paperwork that will secure their freedom. But Cassaundra’s got eyes everywhere and no one can be trusted when even salt looks like sugar.

What Readers are Saying:

“I loved the dynamic between Wanda and her BFF, Rosa. They grew up in foster care together and had each other’s backs no matter what. This was a quick read, more like a short story. It held my attention and gave some good info on the foster care system. I expect nothing less when I read a novel by Yecheilyah.

Most people can relate to the lives of many of the characters in this book. Everyone in the story had a fight of their own. Some fights were apparent & could be overcome through decisions, processes & time (Wanda /Ms. L/ Neighbors), some fights would have to be lived through from day to day (Rosa) and other fights were internal, hidden, & may never truly be acknowledged (Ms. C). I truly enjoyed this short story.”
