👉🏼 “I’m loving this book! It’s so funny and sweet, and thought-provoking too!”

Hoodwinked by the charming smile and dishy British accent of an international school administrator, Amanda says farewell to her simple and predictable American life in exchange for a teaching position in Turkey, a country featuring fasting, feasting, and frequent calls to prayer.

Join Amanda on her hilarious and culture-clashing adventures as she learns Turkish, dodges snide 8th-grade remarks, and stumbles her way through her first year at I-Squared, the Istanbul International School.

Cold Turkey is for those who enjoy exploring new destinations, travel humor, and the joy (and anxiety) of being a stranger in a strange land. A modern-day Pride and Prejudice collides–up close and personal–with daily Turkish life, like they're smashed together on a crowded, steamy public bus.

🎉 Here’s what readers have decided:

“Thoroughly enjoyed”
