Amal, a 12 year old Pakistani girl, dreams of finishing school and becoming a teacher one day, despite the obstacles in her path. After insulting a dangerous, wealthy landowner, Amal is forced to work for him as an indentured servant and fears she will never be able to return home or accomplish her dreams. Amal's ability to read, a rarity among Pakistani girls of limited means, may allow her save herself and even her entire village, if she is brave enough to tell the truth about the murderous landlord. Will Amal risk her life and her entire family for a chance to be free?

This is a heart-wrenching and compelling story of a young Pakistani girl who insults the wrong person in her village and is then forced serve that person's family. It kept my attention from the beginning to the very end. The cover is gorgeous and I found this a pretty quick read.
