The Way Things Look to MeBook - 2009
My name is Yasmin Murphy, and I don''t remember very much about the morning that my mum died, which is odd, as normally I remember everything. At 23, Asif is less than he wanted to be. His mother''s sudden death forced him back home to look after his youngest sister, Yasmin, and he leads a frustrating life, ruled by her exacting need for routine. Everyone tells Asif that he''s a good boy, but he isn''t so sure. Lila has escaped from home, abandoning Asif to be the sole carer of their difficult sister. Damaged by a childhood of uneven treatment, as Yasmin''s needs always came first, she leads a wayward existence, drifting between jobs and men, obsessed with her looks and certain that her value is only skin deep. And then there is Yasmin, who has no idea of the resentment she has caused.
