This book is so good.

Not only is it the first book of its kind (South African Muslim author writing about the South African Indian Muslim community) but it also highlights the fact that Apartheid impacted EVERYONE including the Indians in South Africa!

Although it is set in Apartheid South Africa, the book is also really funny, even if you don't speak gujarati and aren't from South Africa it is still a good read and highlights a lot of issues within certain communities.

also i really like Adam i think he was the cutest. ;)

Anyways, so glad there is a sequel!

Happy Reading. =)
