The Right Sort of Girl

By Anita Rani


In Stock


Anita Rani was a girl who didn’t fit in anywhere. She was always destined to stand out: from playing Mary in her otherwise all-white nursery nativity to growing up in eighties Yorkshire with her Punjabi family. After spending her childhood in her parents’ factory and teenage years figuring out how best to get rid of hair that seemed to be growing EVERYWHERE, Anita writes for anyone who has ever felt different or alone.

Sharing the lessons she wishes her younger self could have known: ‘Freedom is Complicated’, ‘Your Anger is Legitimate’, and updated with a new chapter, Anita shows how she became the powerhouse she is whilst battling against being too white inside her home and too brown outside of it.
