Summary "'At the age of thirteen, I knew that I was destined to marry John Travolta. One day he would arrive on my North London doorstep, fall madly in love with me and ask me to marry him. Then he would convert to Islam and become a devoted Muslim.' Shelina is keeping a very surprising secret under her headscarf--she wants to fall in love and find her faith. Torn between the Buxom Aunties, romantic comedies and mosque Imams, she decides to follow the arranged-marriage route to finding Mr. Right, Muslim-style. Shelina's captivating journey begins as a search for the one, but along the way she also discovers herself and her faith. A memoir with a hilarious twist form one of Britain's leading female Muslim writers"--Distributor's Website
