"You cannot do anything in this country without my permission." Being a teenager isn't easy. And it doesn't help when you have a mega strict Egyptian dad who tells you that everything is "haram" a.k.a. forbidden. All Sara wants to do is experiment with makeup and read fashion magazines, but her dad's conservative interpretation of Islam makes it impossible. Things get even harder when her dad lands himself a job in the Arabian Gulf and moves Sara and her family to a country where the patriarchy rules supreme. In a country where you have to have your father's permission for everything, every door feels like it is being closed on Sara's future. Can Sara find her voice again? Will she ever be free?

This book was so gorgeous. I really enjoyed it but it was very sad. (no spoilers) I read it in 48 hours - I was hooked. It was such an eye opener to read about life in the Gulf and the things that women have to... More

“Inspiring and emotional read”

This is an intense read and difficult read at times, but I’m so glad I did. It has big trigger warnings for rape, misogyny, sexual assault, and domestic violence and violence toward women. This is such an... More
