Sofia Khan is going about everything the wrong way. At least, that’s what her mother, Mehnaz, thinks. Sofia is twice-divorced, homeless and – worst of all – refusing to give up on a fostered baby girl. Sofia’s just not behaving like a normal woman should.

Sofia doesn’t see it like that. She’s planning to adopt Millie, and she’s sure it’ll be worth it. (Even if it means she and Millie have to stay at Mehnaz’s place for a while.) And as Sofia finally begins to live the life she’s chosen, she finds both romance and happiness start to blossom.

But then someone comes back from the past – and not even Sofia’s own past. Suddenly, she’s faced with a choice. To do what’s best for those she loves, Sofia might have to break her own heart. And she might find herself needing the last person she expected . . .

Critics Review

  • Praise for SOFIA KHAN IS NOT OBLIGED:

  • Rather like a contemporary Barbara Pym [Malik] redraws the boundaries of what stories about British Muslims might look like. . . it touches our capacity for human sympathy and connection in important ways

    THE TIMES
  • Wise and warm-hearted

    SUNDAY TIMES
  • Feisty, funny and relatable, it’s the feminist comedy you’ve been waiting for

    ELLE
  • A courageous, revealing, fiendishly funny and important book. Genuinely ground-breaking

    Vaseem Khan
  • I adored this. A gorgeous, funny, smart uplifting story about seeking unity during times of division. Wish I could prescribe it to the country
