    Karen thinks she's not proper white. Her dad is Pakistani and her mother is white Christian, and somehow she feels as if she doesn't quite fit in...anywhere. So she's made a choice: she's switching sides. Karen's going to convert to Islam to find her true identity. But Shamshad, her Hijab-wearing school mate, isn't making things easy for her. What's her deal, anyway? Is Shamshad really any more proper? Trouble and turmoil await, as school battles are replaced by family troubles, name calling turns to physical confrontation and cataclysmic secrets are unveiled. You're Not Proper shines a light on issues of identity, religion, politics and class affecting young people today - a unique series in young adult fiction.
