"Slow Dancing with the Stars is a novella revolving around the healing journey of a young girl, and those around her who heal alongside her. Nauf has a way with her words. Subtle, yet powerful at the same time. She has a style of using few words but the impact it leaves is long-lasting. It is a book that will leave your heart feeling full, and is definitely one you will want to come back to." -- Sajla Anees, Author of Refuge.
