The Lovereading4Kids comment

Thoughtful and deeply moving, this book packs a hard punch. From the moment that his sister Jas disappears, Sat knows that something serious has gone wrong. Accused by her husband of running off with a boyfriend, Jas just vanishes. While his family accept the story and lie low, ‘shamed’ by her behaviour, Sat refuses to believe that his sister would ever do such a thing. Risking his life, Sat’s search for the truth involves uncovering the corruption and violence at the heart of his brother-in-law’s business operations. More importantly, it involves challenging the Sikh community’s frightening view of ‘honour’. Bali Rai writes with enormous conviction and great understanding.

Synopsis

Killing Honour by Bali Rai

'Honour,' I repeated, wondering how such a small word could have caused so much trouble. When Sat's sister, Jas, is married off into the Atwal family she changes, she's quiet and distant. But Sat's too busy with his own life; his girlfriend, his friends, football ...Then Jas disappears. According to her new husband, she's run off with another man. Her family disown her; don't seem to care if she's ever found. But Sat doesn't believe it. Something has happened to his sister and he's determined to figure out what. But his investigations take him into dark and dangerous territory ...This is a powerful, hard-hitting teen thriller on the controversial topic of honour killing, by multi-award-winning author Bali Rai.
