Notes:
'Honour,' I repeated, wondering how such a small word could have caused so much trouble. When Sat's sister, Jas, is married off into the Atwal family she changes, she's quiet and distant. But Sat's too busy with his own life; his girlfriend, his friends, football ...Then Jas disappears. According to her new husband, she's run off with another man.

Reviews
Dreadfully sad, gritty novel regarding so called "honour killings". Rai skillfully illustrates the point that this is a ridiculous and hypocritical phrase; there's no honour in turning your back on your family because what the community at large thinks of you is more important than your family's lives. It's all the more tragic because this actually still happens in our supposedly civilised society today. For older teens.
