For fans of The Kite Runner comes this remarkable debut, the number one bestselling title in Iraq, Dubai and the UAE.

It’s 1991 and the Gulf War is raging. Two girls, hiding in an air raid shelter, tell stories to keep the fear and the darkness at bay, and a deep friendship is born. And while the city collapses around them, the sanctions bite and friends begin to flee, life goes on. People tend their gardens, go dancing and celebrate weddings, and the girls share their dreams, desires, school routines and first loves. In her brilliant debut novel, Shahad Al Rawi takes readers beyond the familiar images in the news to show the everyday struggle of Baghdad’s people, revealing the reality of growing up in a war-torn city that’s slowly disappearing in front of your eyes.

‘With tremendous talent and a sharp intelligence, Al Rawi delivers an outstanding debut. Highly recommended.’
Library Journal, starred

'A poignant portrayal of the enduring bond of friendship, infused with a touch of magical realism.’
Book Riot

‘Marked with a wild inventiveness and emotional depth … a stirring, and at times moving, portrait of two young women sticking together while everything around them falls apart.'
The National
