There are only two tragedies in life. One is not getting your heart's desire - and the other? Getting it. Fourteen-year-old Lucky Khalil is passionate about three things: football, Star Wars and Portia, the girl who works in his grandfather's corner shop. In that order. While Lucky pursues his girl and his dreams of one day scoring for England, his mother Delphine, the woman who seems to have everything, fantasises about rediscovering the freedom of her youth.

But rekindling a relationship with her father-in-law Zaki is only going to end in disaster. And, as they move closer to their dreams, do they risk losing sight of what's really important? Download and start listening now!

    " It is so refreshing to pick up a book this well-written. The story is slow-starting and more a slice of life (very dysfunctional ones) than it is "action-packed" but picks up well along the way. I caught myself more than once re-reading sentences that were so intuitive I wondered "who notices things like that?"...Farooki does. This is one of the most talented authors I have come across to date. If she had a smashing story she would rank up there with Khaled Hosseini. I have ordered all of her other books and can't wait to dive into them. "

    " Quick read about complicated relationships. Not much cross-cultural detail. "

    " Found this to be mediocre, not well written and totally unrealistic. It held my interest at times but at others did not "

    " I really liked this story. It was full of charming characters. I didn't like that it seemed unnecessarily wordy sometimes. It could have been 50 pages shorter! "
