“Busted” – 2018 Readers’ Favorite Bronze Medal Winner

“Busted, by Michele Khoury, is a well-written and exceedingly heartfelt debut novel about cocaine and its abuse. What separates Khoury’s work from other similarly-themed volumes are found in her characters’ thoughts and exploits when it comes to legalization. Never a simple issue, Khoury’s characters are human and conceived as though the author is personally familiar with each. As such, the answers to the related, difficult, and interconnected journeys of her three main characters will have readers questioning their own biases. This is a brave work, part ‘Traffic,’ part ‘Magnolia,’ all original. Kudos to this author for a gutsy, profound effort. Busted heralds the arrival of a bold new voice. ”
