THIS BOOK. As a gen 2 British Asian I read the UK edition in one sitting, nodding my head so hard I thought it’d fall off. Buy that and buy THIS. These are the voices we need to hear today. It’s not just my story. It’s OUR story.

I’m seeing some well-intentioned tweets talking about boosting Muslim authors as a show of solidarity and support. Please don’t. Boost this donation page instead, and help the families affected.

I simply don't have the space for these gorgeous signed, first edition hardback copies of these books. I've read most and they're brilliant. I'm selling them for £15 each (p+p included), or deals if you buy more than one. I'll also throw in a proof of your choice 💜 (see photos)

Folks who defend the college cheaters because they were just doing everything they could to give their kids a good life will condemn in the harshest possible terms people who immigrate without papers to give their kids a good life because that's breaking The Rules.
