The Parkour Club
Parkour enthusiast Bronte Miller is back from a year in Alexandria, Egypt, where her father was a war correspondent. It means she misses her secret Egyptian boyfriend and is bored in her desert hometown in Washington state. That is, until Yemeni refugee Karam Saif shows up, trying awkwardly to fit into American high school life.
“I can help him with that,” she thinks. Handsome, attentive and an ace parkour athlete, Karam seems the perfect antidote to her impossible home situation and not-happening readjustment to American life. Together, they and the Parkour Club party-it-up around town and revel in learning challenging new parkour moves. But both have Middle Eastern secrets that draw them ever closer to danger, and someone they can’t identify is meddling with their lives. Can they outrun the past, or join forces and save each other?
