Twenty-two-year-old Summer is a force to be reckoned with. She’s funny, she’s stubborn, she’s clever, and she’s very opinionated on life as a Millennial Muslim woman. The only problem is that she is dead. When her younger sister, Sara, finds Summer’s lifeless body on their bathroom floor, Summer can only watch as a devastated Sara calls the rest of her family to announce her death. With no way back to her body and no idea how she died, Summer remains a helpless observer as members of her devoted, dysfunctional family come back home to bury her – and her secrets. As Summer pieces together the events of the night before, she starts unravelling her whole life: the fabric of her British-Omani-Zanzibari family, the culture clashes, the depression that dogged her for years, and the childhood trauma that changed her forever… Riveting and heart-breaking, Summer’s haunting story is one you will never forget. Review Quote: Summer’s voice is alive through the book while she is not. The End of Summer is a triumphant debut for Salha Al Busaidy. The storytelling is compelling, and Salha uses Summer’s twenty-two-year-old perspective to cover contested issues of migration, gender, race and ethnicity. The book takes you to Zanzibar and to Oman, and then London with characters that stay with you long after the book is finished. An interesting addition to the growing body of regional anglophone literature. Sabyn Javeri Jillani, PhD Author of Hijabistan & Nobody Killed Her
