"An ode to girl friendship and queer love in a Muslim-American community. This book will fill you with nostalgia and the type of compassion that is cleansing for the heart." --Shoshana Bockol, H&H Books
Razia Mirza grows up amid the wild grape vines and backyard sunflowers of Corona, Queens, with her best friend, Saima, by her side. When a family rift drives the girls apart, Razia's heart is broken. She finds solace in Taslima, a new girl in her close-knit Pakistani-American community. They embark on a series of small rebellions: listening to scandalous music, wearing miniskirts, and cutting school to explore the city.
