    Amal a toujours rêvé de devenir institutrice. Mais quand sa mère, qui vient de mettre au monde une seconde fille, sombre dans la dépression, elle doit la remplacer et s'occuper de la maison. Elle ne peut plus aller à l'école et voit son rêve d'émancipation s'éloigner.
    Sa situation empire encore lorsque, suite à une altercation sur le marché avec Jawad, l'homme tout puissant de son village, elle est obligée de s'installer chez lui comme servante.
    Malgré les brimades et les humiliations, pourtant, à force de courage et de détermination, Amal trouvera bientôt sa place parmi les servantes, auxquelles elle apprendra à lire. Elle se battra pour sa liberté et, avec le soutien de quelques personnes bienveillantes, elle saura saisir sa chance.
    Grace à elle, la tyrannie qu'exerce Jawad sur le village pourrait même prendre fin...

    D'un côté : Jamie Goldberg, dix-sept ans, une maladresse maladive. Il s'est retrouvé embarqué dans la campagne d'un candidat aux élections locales.

    Ensemble, et surtout malgré eux, ils sont recrutés pour faire du porte-à-porte.
    Ça n'a rien de très sexy, mais ce n'est pas la pire activité au monde non plus, surtout que peu à peu les rebondissements de la campagne électorale les rapprochent...

    A New York Times Bestseller! Amal has big dreams, until a nightmarish encounter . . . Twelve-year-old Amal's dream of becoming a teacher one day is dashed in an instant when she accidentally insults a member of her Pakistani village's ruling family. As punishment for her behavior, she is forced to leave her heartbroken family behind and go work at their estate. Amal is distraught but has faced setbacks before. So she summons her courage and begins navigating the complex rules of life as a servant, with all its attendant jealousies and pecking-order woes. Most troubling, though, is Amal's increasing awareness of the deadly measures the Khan family will go to in order to stay in control. It's clear that their hold over her village will never loosen as long as everyone is too afraid to challenge them--so if Amal is to have any chance of ensuring her loved ones' safety and winning back her freedom, she must find a way to work with the other servants to make it happen.

    A heart-wrenching tale of forbidden love 'A wonderfully complex love story unlike any youve read before. Saeed has given a novel that is both entertaining and important.--Matt de la Peña, New York Times bestselling author Nailas conservative immigrant parents have always said the same thing: She may choose what to study, how to wear her hair, and what to be when she grows up--but they will choose her husband. Following their cultural tradition, they will plan an arranged marriage for her. And until then, dating--even friendship with a boy--is forbidden. When Naila breaks their rule by falling in love with Saif, her parents are livid. Convinced she has forgotten who she truly is, they travel to Pakistan to visit relatives and explore their roots. But Nailas vacation turns into a nightmare when she learns that plans have changed--her parents have found her a husband and they want her to marry him, now! Despite her greatest efforts, Naila is aghast to find herself cut off from everything and everyone she once knew. Her only hope of escape is Saif . . . if he can find her before its too late.
