Beauty - in both name and appearance - is a 20-year-old Bangladeshi, back in England having shocked her family by fleeing an abusive arranged marriage. Now she is forced onto the jobseekers' treadmill. Her fractious encounters with officialdom and passers-by in the city streets place her at the mercy of many unlikely helpers. But it's with honesty and compassion that Beauty moves ever closer towards resolving her dilemma of family duty and personal destiny.

    " I picked this up from the "new books" shelf at the library. I wasn't sure I liked the characters at first, but they grew on me and kept me interested. I read it within a few days, and wished there was more when I got to the end. "

    " Oops, left this one at a hotel half way through. But it wasn't very good. A lot of ham handed dialogue and a bit slow to get off the ground. "

    " This is a good read with a strong storyline. Although, it did feel more like reading a documentary of a 20 yr old bangladeshi girl iin UK, rather than fiction. The whole book is a span of 10 days, I did feel like I came to the end too soon. Nicely written, but Too much bangladeshi words. "
