You Must Be Layla

Yassmin Abdel-Magied

About the book

Layla's mind goes a million miles a minute, so does her mouth - unfortunately her better judgement can take a while to catch up! Even though she believes she was justified for standing up for herself, a suspension certainly isn't the way she would have wished to begin her time at her fancy new secondary school. Despite the setback, Layla's determined to prove that she does deserve her scholarship by setting her sights on winning the big robotics competition. But where to begin?

You Must Be Layla is jam-packed with heart and humour, touching on the migrant experience whilst exploring thought-provoking themes relevant to all teens, and introducing Yassmin Abdel-Magied as a brilliant new voice in children's writing.
