In 2015, three Bethnal Green schoolgirls fled to Syria to join the self-proclaimed Islamic State. I Am Thunder is a response to that event. Muhammad’s 15-year-old protagonist, the unforgettable Muzna, dreams of being a writer but is drawn down a more dangerous path. Yet this is an uplifting, empowering novel with hope at its heart. Muhammad will be discussing his inspiration for the book and will be introducing you to his latest novel, Kick The Moon.
