'Powerful and profound' Daisy Buchanan

'Breathtakingly original... a searing examination of the modern world and its sensibilities' Imran Mahmood
__

With words come power. But do you speak out or shut up?

Everywhere Sara Javed goes - online or outside - everyone is shouting about something. Couldn't they all just shut up? One day she takes her own advice.

At first people don't understand her silence and are politely confused at best. But the last thing Sara could anticipate is becoming the figurehead of a global movement that splits society in two.

The Silent Movement sparks outrage in its opposers. Global structures start to shift. And the lives of those closest to Sara - as well as strangers inspired by her act - begin to unravel.

It's time for the world to reconsider what it means to have a voice.

A sharply observed novel, charged with compassion and dark wit, that will spark important conversations about how we live, relate and communicate now.

'A compelling, dark, must-read page turner - Malik makes us care with wry humour and bite' * Helen Lederer *
Rather like a contemporary Barbara Pym [Malik] redraws the boundaries of what stories about British Muslims might look like. . . it touches our capacity for human sympathy and connection in important ways * THE TIMES *
Wise and warm-hearted * SUNDAY TIMES *
Malik has created one of our favourite literary characters of recent times * HEAT *
Exploring identity, belonging and divided loyalties. . . a prescient novel * COSMOPOLITAN *
Feisty, funny and relatable, it's the feminist comedy you've been waiting for * ELLE *
A courageous, revealing, fiendishly funny and important book. Genuinely ground-breaking * VASEEM KHAN *
I adored this. A gorgeous, funny, smart uplifting story about seeking unity during times of division. Wish I could prescribe it to the country * DAISY BUCHANAN *
The standout book of the year * ABIR MUKHERJEE *
In creating a host of characters that are normal in their abnormality, relatable yet individual, Malik is undoubtedly making a difference in relatable portrayals of Muslims in popular culture * NEW STATESMAN *
A sharp, funny but ultimately very normal portrayal of life as a British Muslim * NATIONAL *
A must-read * MARIE CLAIRE *
Fun, feisty and addictive * IRISH EXAMINER *
