"A brilliant piece of original writing...this novel is both thought-provoking and hugely readable." THE BOOKSELLER "Straight from the heart - bitter, angry, honest and funny with rich and real characters." Lesley Simm, Librarian "Harry and Ranjit were waiting for me - waiting to take me to a wedding. My wedding. A wedding that I hadn't asked for that I didn't want. To a girl I didn't know..." Set partly in the UK and partly in the Punjab region of India, this is a fresh, bitingly perceptive and totally up-to-the minute look at one young man's fight to free himself from family expectations and to be himself, free to dance to his own tune.

Choosing one's own path in life is always difficult but imagine the pressures felt by Punjab teen Manjit, living in rural England and chafing at the expectations of an abusive father and a manipulative mother. Kish Sharma finds humor and pathos in Manny's plight. He easily turns the street jive and ethnic phrases into his own, creating an empathetic character who, in the end, wins his freedom while losing a vital part of his past. Young adult readers may find Manny's culture interesting and also may become more appreciative of supportive parents.
