Brief Summary of Sweet Sixteen:

The novel is about Aliya who is constantly reminding her father that she is not a child but ‘a young adult’ but as a doting father, Mr. Bello does not always agree with her.

As she’s turning sixteen with all the changes that follow, she started to notice. The expected birthday card from him is replaced by a present and no a ‘serious’ letter – a page for each year she has lived.

It chronicles the lessons he has tried to teach her and the wisdom he has attempted to pass to her. It unburdens the burning questions she has about life and sometimes shows through the cluelessness of parental units.

This leads Aliya to question who she is and why she is; with her father as a guide on this journey of discovery.
