«<p>"So simply done and yet packs an almighty emotional punch …  a wonderful addition to any classroom that is investigating the history of the suffragette movement and the history of Empire. This is a fantastic story about a woman who defied authority and achieved incredible things. It’s a wonderful achievement" -- The Historian Next Door</p>»

«<p>"Takes a complex story and distils it down to the essentials while keeping the narrative clear, accessible and engaging at all times. I can see this being a tremendous hit with teachers looking for resources to use in the classroom that raise a wide range of pressing social issues because it tells its story provocatively but without being tediously didactic. Highly recommended" -- The Letterpress Project</p>»

«<p>"Fascinating ... highlights a troubling period of British history in an accessible manner" -- BookTrust, Book of the Day</p>»

Om forfatteren

Bali Rai was born in Leicester where he grew up in a multicultural community dreaming of playing football for Liverpool FC, being Bob Marley or becoming a writer. He writes the books he would have enjoyed as a teenager and his book Rani and Sukh is a set-text for GCSE English. His novel, Killing Honour, won the North East Teenage Book Award, and was described as "utterly compelling" by The Bookseller.
