    When I started this book, I felt transported immediately to another world. Not on this earth. Not in this century. Looking at a nether living space through shattered glasses. Such was the eerily low keyed shock as page by page, the author unleavens a strange society in our 21st century world.

    Superficially, this novel is about 4 High School girls, in what I understand as events happening in an elite girls school in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Meaning that these are privileged and have connections. Outw

    Actual rating 4.3

    I learned so much from this book. Written beautifully with incredibly rich world building and cultural immersion this is a truly amazing novel. When reading this book the idea that this is some type of fiction where we live in a society that controls women so completely is terrifying.

    This is a beautifully written story that offers an incredible and heartbreaking view into the lives of women on the other side of the world. It is the story of friendship in the midst of struggle, and of the power of hope to conquer darkness.

  • Lupita

    Amazing take of ingenuity and resilience in a life where every freedom and experience is overseen and controlled by men. Leena's will and intelligence let her survive a life that is filled with thorns and tribulations. It's a wonderful read and shes uses the culture and it's own religious rules to find freedom.

  • Prita Sethuram

    A masterful and compelling narrative set in the heart of Saudi Arabia. The author has captured with artistic finesse, female teenage angst and painful yearning for unconditional love and friendship.

    The author has also woven into the narrative a yearning for physical and emotional freedom from a society ruled by a hawkish cultural police.

    A must- read.

    Kudos to the author!
