Sadika’s Way: A Novel of Pakistan and America by Hina Haq [in AsianWeek]

Sadika's wayNot exactly one of the newest titles (it arrived later than sooner on my desk), but certainly noteworthy because of its subject matter. It opens with the Pakistani birth of Sadika – an unwanted daughter – and moves swiftly along through her coming of age, her lack of marriage prospects, and her eventual blossoming as an independent young woman. A sense of “you GO, girl” keeps moving the story, and you can’t help but root for naive Sadika as she finally claims her own voice and learns to navigate a discovered newly sense of self.
