Paperback, 124 pages
Show Yourself by Adeeba Jafri is made up of two groundbreaking pieces of Young Adult fiction that draw inspiration from real life to promote mental health awareness in teenage readers.
In Show Yourself, the story of a missing phone runs parallel to a story about friendship, hurt and the importance of talking about how you feel.
In A Wound Like No Other, Jafri further explores themes of love, isolation and the complexities that exist within a conservative Muslim community.
These beautifully written stories centred around mental health have an ensemble of relatable characters who find themselves in difficult positions. Their dilemmas and actions will strike a chord in every reader and will stay with you long after you turn the last page.
