Aliya has to constantly remind her father that she is not a child but a ‘young adult’. He does not always agree with her.
But now that she is turning sixteen, he is sitting up and taking notice. The expected birthday card from him is replaced by a present and a no holds barred letter – a page for each year she has lived. It chronicles the lessons and the wisdom he has attempted to pass to her, and unburdens the burning questions she has about life. Aliya questions who she is and why she is; with her father as a guide on this journey of discovery.
An engaging coming of age guide on life and loving for the teenage girl.
