On the cusp of adulthood, three young people are about to make the most momentous decision of their lives.

Anita lives in Karachi's slums - fearful that her fate is to serve the rich, until an elderly neighbour offers her an escape into another world ...

Monty belongs to Karachi's elite - his future is mapped out, until he meets a beautiful, rebellious girl ...

Sunny is a Portsmouth teenager - he is suffocated by the love and expectation of his father, until his charismatic cousin shows him a way to be his own man ...

These three paths are about to collide.

And when they do, Anita, Monty and Sunny will find themselves at the mercy of powers beyond their control, and faced with a choice that will change them forever.

'This is a bold and probing novel, from a writer strikingly alert to something small and true' - The Guardian
