This beautifully depicts Laila’s close relationship with her hugely supportive mother, her engaging sense of humour, and her refusal to let her disability prevent her from taking control of her life. Inevitably Laila suffers more than her share of disappointment, but her fast-moving emotional journey is so charming and breezily rendered that it engages our sympathies throughout.
