• AMAL UNBOUND

    Aisha Saeed

    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.

  • 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.
    De l'autre : Maya Rehman, dix-sept ans, un caractère bien affirrmé. Ses vacances en famille ont été annulées, mais sa meilleure amie est trop occupée pour traîner avec elle.
    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...
