Description

In this young adult debut set in Saudi Arabia, where the law forbids romantic relationships outside of marriage, two teens fall in love with tragic consequences. Sixteen-year-old Zarin Wadia is many things: an Indian girl, a bright and vivacious student, an orphan, a troublemaker whose romantic entanglements are the subject of endless gossip among the girls in her school. "You don't want to get involved with a girl like that," they say. So how is it that Porus, a Parsi boy, has only ever had eyes for her? And how did Zarin and Porus end up dead in a car together, crashed on the side of the highway in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia? When the religious police arrive, everything everyone thought they knew about Zarin is called into question.

Professional reviews

"When teenaged Zarin and Porus are found dead in a car on the side of a highway in Saudi Arabia, their community is abuzz with speculation and gossip. As their ghosts watch the investigation unfold, listeners are taken through their lives in a series of flashbacks. Told through multiple perspectives by four narrators--Firdous Bamji, Neil Shah, Soneela Nankani, Lameece Issaq--the story depicts complex family dynamics, restrictive social pressures, and a world in which a young woman's inaccurate reputation pollutes every aspect of her life. This piece is rich in cultural detail, with strong phrasing and deliberate pacing, as the narrators work to build a complete picture from overlapping stories and experiences.
