Truth be Told – Kia Abdullah

I received a copy of ‘Truth be Told’ by Kia Abdullah as part of my subscription from @Bertsbooks. I have had many good books delivered which I probably wouldn’t have even thought about reading. I had never read any of Kia’s books before, but I must read more as this was excellent.

The book is set in London and follows Kamran Hamid, who attends Hampton School which is an all-boys boarding School.

Kamran Hamid joins in with a student party, having a few drinks with friends he boards with at the school.

When he wakes the next morning, he must unravel the events of the previous night and fight his anxiety and insecurity to decide if he is going to report the events to the authorities.

What follows is a gruelling court case which shows the stigmas in different cultures and the current attitudes in today’s society.

I must admit that I did find the topic a hard one to read about, but it is an extremely relevant and important one. It is shocking to see how people can be treated in this way still today, and highlights how gender and culture shouldn’t be something to get in the way of reporting a crime. It was an emotional read as you followed Kamran’s story. Well written, had me wanting to know more & more throughout.

Overall, a brilliantly written, courtroom and cultural family drama which deals with such an important subject.
