Product Description
Manny wants to be a football, or a pop star, or write a bestseller, he doesn't want to get married . . .

'Harry and Ranjit were waiting for me - waiting to take me to Derby, to a wedding. My wedding. A wedding that I hadn't asked for, that I didn't want. To a girl who I didn't know . . . If they had bothered to open their eyes, they would have seen me- seventeen, angry, upset but determined - determined to do my own thing, to choose my own path in life . . . '

Set partly in the UK and partly in the Punjab region of India, this is a fresh, bitingly perceptive and totally up-to-the-minute look at one young man's fight to free himself from family expectations and to be himself, free to dance to his own tune.Manny wants to be a football, or a pop star, or write a bestseller, he doesn't want to get married . . .
