Love in a Headscarf

by Shelina Zahra Janmohamed
£10.99   paperback  Aurum Press Ltd (2009)

Love in a Headscarf by Shelina Zahra Janmohamed 'At the age of thirteen, I knew I was destined to marry John Travolta.
One day he would arrive on my North London doorstep, fall madly in love with me and ask me to marry him. Then he would convert to Islam and become a devoted Muslim.'

 
Shelina is keeping a very surprising secret under her headscarf - she wants to fall in love.
 
Torn between the Buxom Aunties, romantic comedies and mosque Imams, she decides to follow the arranged marriage route to finding Mr Right, Muslim-style. Shelina's captivating journey begins as a search for the One, but along the way she also discovers her faith and herself.
 
A memoir with a hilarious twist from one of Britain's leading female Muslim writers, Love in a Headscarf is an entertaining, fresh and unmissable insight into what it means to be a young British Muslim woman.
