AliasBook - 2015
Samiya learnt how to fit in early on. A mixed-race face in an all-white school doesn't have much choice. A holiday in Yemen getting to know her grandmother was a revelation seeing where, and how, her father grew up. But then, a drone fired its Hellfire missile at her grandmother and kills her. So Samiya begins a campaign to raise awareness and get the government to take action - writing emails, pestering her MP, collecting names on petitions - but she finds this has little effect. Online, talking to sympathetic strangers, Samiya slowly uncovers another way. She becomes Angel, masterminding a drone attack on London. When it fails, Angel becomes Saffron - a new city, a new persona, short peroxide highlights and a loving boyfriend called Liam. Can she change or is she still Samiya, seeking revenge?
