There would never be a place Jay could hide the shame, the besti, or bury it deep enough; she would never be free of it. It would taint her like a livid scar until the day she died.”
 
Fifteen year old Jay isn’t a traditional Indian girl, not matter how hard they try to make her one.
Banished to the cellar, she is forced to be someone she’s not.
And then her life implodes.
Will she find a way to keep going?

The Girl in the Broken Mirror

Coming Soon!!

The Girl in the Broken Mirror is both harrowing and touching. Jay is wonderfully drawn and engaging. The issues of abuse, culture-clash and the patriarchal sense of entitlement that plagues British Asian men of a certain persuasion, are handled with sensitivity and honesty. The book is refreshing and hard-hitting, which is much needed.”
