"Full of genuine warmth, Anita Rani transfers her popular TV personality to books with this inspiring and insightful memoir"
A much-loved personality on TV, Anita Rani lends all of her warmth and insight we’re used to seeing on screen to her writing. There’s an enthusiastic openness to her words – with lots of exclamation marks to show her spirit and excitement – and a cheering message in her story that will resonate, especially with anyone who feels like they’re on the margins of society. “Own your ‘otherness’, it’s your strength,” Anita encourages. And The Right Sort of Girl is full of these motivational, inspirational quotes. Her memoir describes her upbringing in Bradford in the 1970s, and the difficulties conforming to her Punjabi family’s expectations while trying to fit into British society. There’s much to be said on the subject of discrimination, and many readers will relate to her experiences. An inspiring story, particularly for British Asians – one that showcases all of Anita’s sense of humour, Yorkshire roots and Indian heritage.
