Ten Steps To Us is the stunning debut novel from author Attiya Khan and is the second novel to be published by Hashtag Blak.
What if you met the boy of your dreams but loving him was forbidden?
Aisha Rashid has always felt invisible, so no one is more surprised than her when Darren, the hot new boy in school, takes an interest. But Aisha is a devout Muslim and Darren is firmly off-limits. Will she follow her heart even if it means losing her own identity? If only there was a way to keep the boy and her faith. Maybe there is… all it takes is ten steps…
Ten Steps To Us is a wonderful and thought-provoking coming of age novel. Told from the point of view of Aisha who perfectly encapsulates the struggles she faces not just as a young adult trying to figure out who she is and her place in the world, but as a British Muslim. Aisha’s struggles as she tries to stay true to her faith, please her family and fit in with her peers.
It’s a beautiful exploration of growing up that many will be able to relate to.
Attiya Khan has created something very special with Ten Steps To Us, and we cannot wait to read whatever she releases next.
