TIMELY HOOK: More so than Angela Pisel’s debut (With Love from the Inside), Another Word for Honor has a global and timely hook—hot-button issues such as Islamaphobia, sexual assault, and adoption are all explored in a sensitive and compelling way, told through the lens of a family story. The multicultural roots of the story and the fast-moving plot give this novel a universal appeal.
STRONG DOMESTIC SUSPENSE: Another Word for Honor is quality commercial fiction that reads like a thriller—beginning with a kidnapping and continuing with a cat-and-mouse chase, the action in the read never lets up. Yet, at its heart, it is a warm and relatable family story.
BOOK CLUB APPEAL: The novel’s moral complexity and gripping plotting make this the perfect book club pick, hitting the sweet spot between commercial and literary fiction.
MOTHER-DAUGHTER STORY: Another Word for Honor is centered on the powerful and complicated mother-daughter bond between Ky and Sidra—perfect for fans of novels like Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult or The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See.
NEW TRADE PAPERBACK FORMAT: As we have seen with titles like The Girl Before and The Perfect Nanny, domestic suspense performs very well in the trade paperback format. We anticipate bringing in a fresh audience with this new format and lower price point.
