The Green Bicycle

by Haifaa Al Mansour
£6.99   paperback  Penguin Books Ltd (Puffin) (2015)

The Green Bicycle by Haifaa Al Mansour Dreamer. Rebel. Hero.
 
Wadjda has one simple wish - to race her friend Abdullah on her very own bicycle. But in Saudi Arabia, it is considered improper for girls to ride bikes and her parents forbid her from having one. Sick of playing by the rules, Wadjda schemes different ways to make money and buy the bike herself.
 
But freedom comes at a high price . . .
 
Set against the shifting social attitudes of the Middle East, The Green Bicycle explores gender roles, conformity, and the importance of family, all with wit and irresistible heart.
