It's time to take your power back

But first you're going to have to pick a side . . .


Every time Sara Javed switches on her laptop, checks her phone or goes outside, people are shouting. Everyone seems to be angry about something and she just wishes that they would all shut up. Until she realises that perhaps she should take her own advice . . .

Her voluntary silence is first met with polite, if somewhat disconcerted, alarm. But as her silence inspires others, what Sara doesn't anticipate is inadvertently becoming the figurehead for what becomes a global phenomenon: 'The Silent Movement'. As outrage grows over the protest, and global structures start to shift, the lives of strangers and those closest to Sara start to unravel. Sara and two women inspired by her actions, Grace and Zainab, must reconsider what it means to them to have a voice - or face grave repercussions.

** The anticipation is already building for Ayisha Malik's fiercely original and bold new book, THE MOVEMENT, coming spring 2022 **

MEDIA REVIEWS
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 *
