Sara is a writer and editor. She grew up in Hertford and now lives in London. Her debut novel The Reading List is partly inspired by her grandfather, who lived in Wembley and immediately found a connection with his granddaughter through books. It’s a novel about an unlikely friendship and the healing power of stories.
When elderly widower Mukesh ventures into his local library, desperate to connect with his bookworm granddaughter, young library worker Aleisha introduces him to the magic of reading. The anxious teenager and lonely grandfather form an unlikely book club of two, working their way through a crumpled reading list which Aleisha found tucked into a tattered library book.
The Reading List was a finalist in the Goodreads Choice Awards for Fiction 2021.
