“Tom? It’s me, Samira Khan. I’m sorry if I woke you up. But you said I could call any time.”

“I did, didn’t I?” 

“Well, any time is now,” I say.

 

Samira is a typical teenager but when a life outside her strict upbringing beckons at the same time that an arranged marriage seems inevitable, Sam suddenly wakes up. Her friendship with Tom, founded in the youth theatre they both attend, is at once a problem to solve and a potential way out. But it’s not as simple as just stepping away from the city into the green hills…

Part unconventional love story, part tragedy, Black Dog Sunday is a debut novel with heart and compassion, and filled with hope for the future.

Reviews

Black Dog Sunday opened my eyes and brought me to a new culture I was not aware of. Not only that, I could not put the book down. I was totally intrigued to what was going to happen next. The book has been very well thought out and Carly has researched the culture perfectly.
