This illustrated book narrates the story of Sarah, a 17-year old from Pakistan. She comes from a conservative family and lives with her ami, abu and brother. Along with the do’s and don’ts listed by her ami, the story also introduces the ‘Rishta aunty’ who gets marriage proposals for girls all over town. The story not only reflects on gender stereotyping, but also shows how society encourages it. This story is dedicated to all those girls who go through the same kinds of frustrations in their homes. In the book, Sarah suppresses her own anger and frustration, but for how long? Grab a copy and find out!
