The hilarious follow-up title to You Must Be Layla by Yassmin Abdel-Magied.

I am Layla Kareem Abdel-Hafiz Hussein, the greatest Sudanese Australian inventor the world has ever seen. And if they don't know my name yet, they soon will. Inshallah!

School's out for the summer! And Layla's going to spend it getting her inventions ready for the grand design competition. But when her grandmother falls ill and her family must rush to Sudan to be with her, Layla feels like she's being pulled in many different directions.
Family, friends, home, inventions - there's a lot to navigate. With big protests looming in Sudan, could Layla save the day with her revolutionary ideas?


Exploring the diaspora experience, Listen, Layla is an own voices novel for young readers bursting with passion, humour and truth.

Praise for You Must Be Layla :
'A tonic, and a terrific debut . . . underneath its buoyant humour is a timely wisdom about finding friends in an alien culture' New Statesman
'This warm, humorous account of a larger-than-life Sudanese girl navigating a posh Australian school is an engaging read' Guardian
'Fresh funny and empowering' BookTrust
'A one-of-a-kind bundle of comedy and compassion' LoveReading
