With cunning and dexterity, the four pull off some excellent stunts learning from each other, and more importantly, learning about themselves along the way. Given Jaigirdar's background, I had hoped for more nuance in how she presented her South Asian characters but the whole reason Hinnah gets kicked out of her family was that she was too. Emilie - a Haitian girl who grew up in France and desperately wants to meet the Haitian side of her family. Adiba Jaigirdar was born in Dhaka, Bangladesh, and has been living in Dublin, Ireland since the age of ten. She is the winner of the YA book prize 2022, the KPMG Children's Books Ireland Awards 2021, and was a finalist for the 2022 Lambda Literary awards.

Enter Josefa, an up-until-now petty thief who’s as bold as them come, and who longs to be free of society’s promulgated rules. B]rief chapters in alternating perspectives reveal conflicting interests, hidden motives, and mutual pining. He played his part in the English revolution at Glasgow Rangers and managed QPR, Crystal Palace, Sheffield Wednesday and Birmingham City.She is currently stuck performing super-human feats at a one-ring circus for dwindling crowds and a foul Ringmaster, having lost contact with any and all family back home. Obviously there is much sadness and heartbreak, as the Titanic’s demise features in the final section of the book, but there is also a sense of fun and adventure throughout. They all have aspirations for a better future beyond the drudgery of their current situation in Dublin. For teenagers, they might be interested in this historical period, but I think this missed the mark a fair bit.

Being the older sibling, and the only family either one has left, she feels responsible for his well-being and would certainly do all she could to facilitate a happy reunion.When we meet the four girls, they are living at a boardinghouse in Dublin which is run by a tough but fair local woman, Matron O’Neill.

Even from the perspective of culture, South Asians place a huge value on community and family, idk, I'm gonna leave this one for the Pakistanis to speak on but I found the portrayal very uncomfortable. Now before you get too excited about this heist team, let me be the first to tell you that the execution was beyond disappointing.Adiba Jaigirdar, author of one of TIME 's Best YA books of all time and winner of the YA Book Prize 2022, gives Titanic an Ocean's 8 makeover in this nail-biting heist set onboard the infamous ship. Josefa is a consummate swindler with a feisty personality and a dogged approach to everything she does. I never got a sense we were in Ireland while the characters were on land, and I can not tell you a single description that transported me to the setting of the Titanic.
