Selected by a distinguished independent panel of experts including our editorial expert, Julia Eccleshare, for Diverse Voices - 50 of the best Children's Books celebrating cultural diversity in the UK.
This highly personal story was partly influenced by Bali Rai's own experiences, it looks at the impact cultural traditions can have on young people growing up in modern times and the book will resonate with all who have experienced the pressure of expectation at the hands of their family.
Set partly in the UK and partly in the Punjab region of India, "(Un)arranged Marriage" is a perceptive look at a young man's fight to free himself from family expectations and an arranged marriage he doesn't want.
