In MAD BAD & DANGEROUS TO KNOW readers are swept away on a literary mystery on the streets of Paris with Khayyam, a Muslim teen who summers annually with her parents in France, and a teen boy named Alexandre Dumas, who yes, is related to the person he shares a name with.As they try to unravel the secrets behind the story of cherchez la femme-- a mysterious raven-tressed lady who first appears in letters between the classic author and his friend, the painter Eugène Delacroix, they are wrapped up in questions about poetry, literature, and art. And as the mystery surrounding Leila, the girl in the painting, unravels... her story as a Muslim woman living in Paris in the 1840’s is mirrored with Khayyam’s as a Muslim teenager in the present day. And as Khayyam explores a Parisian world full of literature, history, poetry, art, and forbidden love, she wrestles with her feelings for Alexandre… and the boy that may or may not be waiting for her back home.
