Press Release:
Wordflute Press is delighted to announce the newly published novel "Diary of a Guji Girl" by Qaanitah Hunter.
All that a young Muslimah needs to survive campus life is her headscarf to stay in one place, the perfect lip colour and friends you can rely on. Oh, and Whatsapp messages that get replied on time. That is all.
Amina is a first year student at the University of Johannesburg. Coming from small town Newcastle, this is the freedom that she has been waiting for all through high school.
Between juggling the buzz in her head inspired by the super-cute, popular Moe in his sports car and the growing bond she shares with Sue, she is learning the tricks and trials of being out in the big world. Or is she?
It really is a challenge. If it isn't about family pressure to get married, and to watch that she isn't gallivanting, then it's the feeling of drowning in the crazy world of young people.
Will Amina achieve her Big Houghton Dream? Or is she destined for betrayal?
Follow Amina's private thoughts as she stumbles through university, her flirtation with the infamous 'Samoosa Run', fights off loneliness and encounters guys with cracked heels, balding patches and hanging tummies.
