My Monster & Me
Publishing October 2019
The very first picture book from Nadiya and beautifully illustrated by Ella Bailey.
A touching story about a little boy whose worry monster follows him everywhere he goes. It’s there when he gets dressed, when he wants to play with his toys, and even when his friends come over to visit. How can he escape his worries?
Having suffered with panic disorder herself for as long as she can remember, Nadiya wrote this heartfelt story to help give children and parents the tools they need to talk about worries and anxiety, to ensure that no child suffers in silence.
Finding My Voice
Publishing October 2019
In Finding My Voice, Nadiya explores the many different roles assigned to her by her gender, culture, religion and society and how they have each shaped the woman she is today.
‘I am their daughter. They are me. I am my Baba’s stubborn back bone and his great brows. I am my mum’s resilience and wide birthing hips. I am their profanity, their nerves, I am their traditions, their hang ups, their loss, their tears. I am their human, their child, their daughter.’
Born to parents who emigrated from Bangladesh to Britain, Nadiya first roles were those of daughter and sister. Considering her later identities as a devout Muslim entering an arranged marriage and becoming a wife and mother herself, Nadiya questions the barriers that many women, no matter who they are or where they live, have to cross in order to be accepted or heard. Importantly, she shows us how, at the core of it all, we are essentially tackling the same issues throughout our lives despite our cultural, social and religious differences.
Each chapter deals with a different aspect of herself, and Nadiya writes with warmth, humour, honesty and deep emotion about what each one means to her and how she embodies all the different expectations of these parts of her life. Writing about growing up in a large family who were culturally torn between two countries, to her thoughts on becoming a celebrity after winning The Great British Bake Off, the later chapters cover her more recent roles of ‘baker’, ‘Twitter handle’ and ‘TV presenter’.
