Award-winning presenter Anita Rani has spent years lighting up the screen with appearances on Countryfile, Strictly Come Dancing and most recently Netflix. However, before all that she was a young woman trying to balance her Indian home life with the wider British world in her hometown of Bradford.
By sharing empowering tales from her youth, Rani’s memoir The Right Sort of Girl acts as a letter to her 16-year-old self, taking us behind the scenes of her own coming-of-age-journey. It’s the story of a second-generation British Indian woman trying to find her place in Northern England – all while being labelled too white inside of her family home and too brown outside of it.
The book is unflinchingly honest and packed full of humour, charm and wit, and you can join Rani as she recalls a quest for identity that helped her to become the woman she is today.
