Forced Marriages To Become Illegal

...Forcing someone to marry is to become a criminal offence in England and Wales, leaving parents who coerce their children into a marriage facing the prospect of prison, David Cameron has confirmed.

On the day when the Government flags its intentions of bringing forward legislation to criminalise forced marriages, I'm delighted to announce that the next ACHUKAbooks title, which will be available very shortly, is Rearranged by Ruth Saberton and Sofia Latif.

For one Bradford girl facing marriage to a man in Pakistan she has never met, persuading her parents to postpone the arranged wedding is her only option. "I know my dad is stubborn and won't take too kindly to his very single daughter postponing marriage yet again and moving to London, but that's what I am going to do."

What ensues is a romcom rollercoaster aimed at teens and twenties, in which a serious theme is made the subject of an infectious - but at the same time thought-provoking - entertainment.
