A LibraryReads Pick

Poornima and Savitha have three strikes against them: they are poor, they are ambitious, and they are girls. When a devastating act of cruelty drives Savitha away from their village, Poornima leaves behind everything she has ever known on a harrowing cross-continental journey to find her friend. This searing, electrifying debut is about the extraordinary bond between two girls driven apart by circumstance but relentless in their search for one another.
