Reviews

A sort of Muslim Miranda--Sunday Times
She's sarcastic and irreverent but warm-hearted, and her writing has something of the great Nora Ephron's about it - she's witty and quick, but never takes herself too seriously--Independent
Nawaz tells it like it is in this hilarious, frank and enlightening memoir about growing up Muslim. The bit where, as a moody teenager, she decides to wear the hijab purely to 'out-Muslim' her mother is brilliant--Glamour
Muslim readers will find in Nawaz a passionate advocate for women's rights within the community and a fierce defender of her faith as one of peace. The non-Muslim reader will find her an accessible and entertaining guide to the practicalities of her religion--Telegraph
