Twenty-eight-year old Esma has a Masters in human resources management, never orders just a salad, is well-travelled, has excellent taste in music, watches the ABC news, has The Guardian saved as an application on her iPhone, knows all the two-letter words in Scrabble and can tell the difference between a Ford and Holden. Armed with a personalised checklist, she's on the hunt for Mr Right, who must be Muslim. Along with her three friends - Lisa, who works with refugees, lawyer Ruby, and midwife Nirvana - they form the No Sex in the City club. Love is hard to find and when family, friends and meddling employers are thrown into the equation, the path to true love suddenly takes a great big detour.
Randa Abdel-Fattah has written eight books for young adults and children: Does My Head Look Big in This?, Ten Things I Hate About Me, Where the Streets Had a Name, Noah's Law, Buzz Off, The Friendship Matchmaker, The Friendship Matchmaker Goes Undercover and her first adult novel, No Sex in the City.
