This is a light-hearted, sensitive book about growing up in Britain as an educated hijab-wearing Muslim woman trying to find both herself and her Mr Right. How does she make her own choices and learn to be confident of them and of the way she wants to live her life? Shelina introduces you to the real-life aunties and matchmakers and the traditional and more modern ways of finding Mr Right. You may never have imagined what goes on in the life of Muslim women. By the time you finish reading her story, you would have found a new and unexpected friend in her.
