(Un)arranged Marriage

Publisher: Random House

Manny is furious when his father arranges his marriage to a Sikh girl he has never met. He rebels by skipping school, smoking and shoplifting, but his determined family takes drastic action. Set in Leicester and India, this is a compelling account of one young man's struggle to escape his controlling Punjabi family. This is a brilliant debut novel and it is a refreshing change to see this issue tackled from a male perspective.

A fantastic and relevant story, told with Rai's trademark mixture of humour and emotion.
