it was amazing

I love a good book with a great dollop of culture, my own culture, in it.
And this debut, filled with the fun of being a British Indian, complete with the obligatory GIF (Great Indian Family) was fantastic!
I love that there were elements of the story I could relate to, nodding my head, smiling manically or giggling to myself, with my son sat beside me wondering whether his mother was finally losing it...
That being said, there was a lot that wasn't ordinary about the story too.
We follow Rilla, a young woman on the eve of her wedding, who ends up bailing, in the most unorthodox of ways, by getting arrested (on purpose).
She's stuck in a loop in life, trying to get her MA, but unable to really focus, always feeling like she is second best in everyone's eyes.
Because of Rose.
A person who hasn't been in her life for over half of it, but who has overshadowed her every move,
Rose - her sister, who suddenly went missing from her life.
Rose - who no one will talk about.
Rose - did she run away? Did she get taken away? Did she die?
All these questions, but no answers.
I really enjoyed everything about the book, and look forward to more from this great talent!

Many thanks to NetGalley and Harper Collins UK for an ARC of this book, in exchange for an honest review.
