Editorial Reviews

Review

"Alternating between Amirah and Ali's perspectives, Robert (Black Sheep) teases out the subtleties of young romance and the confounding pull of mutual attraction... it speaks vividly to conflicts of freedom, temptation, and faith. – Publishers Weekly

"Robert has painted a rich, varied picture of contemporary practicing Muslim teens... she succeeds in demonstrating the myriad ways many teens can live how they want while keeping halal" - Booklist

"a stunning novel of young romance" – Dolphin Book Blog

"Difficult as it is for non-Muslim teenagers to come to terms with semi-arranged marriage at 18 or 19, this compelling novel makes sense of it... a gentle, sensitive well paced love story, and I learnt a huge amount about Islam, which is, of course, a loving, caring, thoughtful way of life for the vast majority of its adherents." - The Independent, review by Susan Elkin

"faith and responsibility are sensitively explored... a well written and constructed story" - School Library Association

Listed in TES' Best "Books to Diversify Your Classroom" 2016 ― Karen Sands-O’Connor, TES

She was born in Leeds, grew up in Zimbabwe and went to university in London. At high school, her loves included performing arts, public speaking and writing stories that shocked her teachers!
