9780330463157: The Way Things Look to Me

At 23, Asif is less than he wanted to be. His mother's sudden death forced him back home to look after his youngest sister, Yasmin, and he leads a frustrating life, ruled by her exacting need for routine. Everyone tells Asif that he's a good boy, but he isn't so sure.

Lila has escaped from home, abandoning Asif to be the sole carer of their difficult sister. Damaged by a childhood of uneven treatment, as Yasmin's needs always came first, she leads a wayward existence, drifting between jobs and men, obsessed with her looks and certain that her value is only skin deep.

And then there is Yasmin, who has no idea of the resentment she has caused. Who sees music in colour and remembers so much that sometimes her head hurts. Who doesn't feel happy, but who knows that she is special. Who has a devastating plan.

THE WAY THINGS LOOK TO ME is an affecting, comically tender portrayal of a family in crisis, caught between duty and love in a tangled relationship both bitter and bittersweet.

Product Description:

My name is Yasmin Murphy, and I don't remember very much about the morning that my mum died, which is odd, as normally I remember everything.

Review:

'Lila and Asif care for their young sister Yasmin, but when LIla breaks under the pressure and runs away, Asif has to deal with things along. Unaware of the trouble surrounding her, Yasmin hatches a plan in this beautifullly written book.' --Grazia

'Bittersweet novel of a family in crisis.'
--Woman and Home

' Brilliant!Brilliant!Brilliant!That's all I need to say about this novel,really because I really loved it... Reading this book was like immersing myself in this family's lives - the resentment, the duty, the guilt and the hope for something different.It made me laugh, and pulled at my heartstrings - but ultimately left me with a feeling of understanding and hope long after I turned the last page'
--Bookseller review

`Forced to rely on each other, Asif and Lila can't help by t resent youngest child Yasmin. Can they all ever be happy?' --Woman

`Beautifully written book'
--Grazia

'There are times when you chance upon a book that combines characters so nuanced, flawed and engaging, they virtually jump off the page. And this novel is one such treat... The narratives of three [main characters] swirl around each other in this warm, wonderful portrait of a charmingly atypical family'
--Easy Living

'Yasmin Murphy has Asperger's syndrome and this frank, down-to-earth portrayal of her world is both humorous and poignant' --Waterstone's Books Quarterly

`A tender hearted novel that examines how siblings club together to keep one another afloat. A writer with few pretensions, Farooki is happy to tell it how it is' --Independent

`I absolutely loved the book, as I have both of her previous novels...such great characters painted here, with all sorts of incredible stories, everyone can relate to them...And a wonderful study of Asperger's.'
--BBC Asian Network
