Sixteen-year-olds Leena and Mishie are best friends. They delight in small rebellions against the Saudi cultural police-secret Western clothing, forbidden music, flirtations. But Leena wants college, independence-she wants a different life. Though her story is specific to her world (a world where it's illegal for women to drive, where a ten-year-old boy is the natural choice as guardian of a fatherless woman), ultimately it's a story about friendship, family, and freedom that transcends cultural differences.
