You're Not Proper

by Tariq Mehmood
£6.99   paperback  HopeRoad Publishing Ltd (2015)

You Karen thinks she's not proper white.
Her dad is Pakistani and her mother is white Christian, and somehow she feels as if she doesn't quite fit in... anywhere. So she's made a choice: she's switching sides.
 
Karen's going to convert to Islam to find her true identity. But Shamshad, her Hijab-wearing school mate, isnít making things easy for her. What's her deal, anyway? Is Shamshad really any more proper than her?
 
Trouble and turmoil await in the old textile mill town of Boardhead East, as school battles are replaced by family troubles, name calling turns to physical confrontation and cataclysmic secrets are unveiled.
 
Set against a backdrop of seething Islamaphobia, You're Not Proper is the first in the Striker series, written by Tariq Mahmood, to shine a light on issues of identity, religion, politics and class affecting young people today Ė a unique new series in young adult fiction.
