What is Gurpreet Kaur Bhatti's A Kind of People about?
It's a Friday night out in the sticks of the city and someone's holding a rager party. It may seem all fun and games, but somewhere someone's not having a good time. Nicky and Gary have been going steady since high school. Now Gary's up for a promotion so that he can finally lift his family out of their council housing and give Nicky everything he's ever wanted. Meanwhile, Mo and Anjum are accustomed to aiming high to achieve their goals and will stop at nothing to get what they want. Gary's sister Karen is unphased when it comes to fighting for what one believes in and would rather live her best life instead. And Mark...well, Mark is just there. Always. And let's not forget about the free-spirited Victoria, always wanting to dance with someone...
