"Rabina Khan's book surprises, educates & engrosses the reader." -- Book Reveiw by Rageh Omar - BBC & Al Jazeera
From the Inside Flap
Set in the East End of London during times of racial tension, a little Asian girl Ayesha befriends Mrs. Peters the mother of a neo-fascist living next door and a whole plethora of intrigue, plots and tragedy ensues.
"At its heart, the books optimism lies in the honest way in which Rabina Khan shows how the white families and Asian Muslim families came to rebuild a new sense of British identity. It was not done by all generations of Asians locking themselves away from any contact with their white neighbours. And it was not done by white families intimidating and forcing a completely western, British identity on their Asian neighbours. It happened by a joint embrace of the open, constantly shifting idea of what it means to be British".
"Rabina Khan has written a book which surprises, educates and engrosses the reader."
Rageh Omaar (Al Jazeera).
"A book like this telling life from the inside needed to be written. Thank you so much."
Roberta Taylor, ("The Bill" - ITV & author of best seller
"Too Many Mothers; Memoir of an East End Childhood.")
"I would recommend this book to young people, whatever their background, to show what happens when hate gets out of control but we have to remember that, like the rainbow of the title, good can come out of tragedy."
Anila Baig (The Sun).
