    Nadia Hashimi's literary debut is a searing tale of powerlessness, fate, and the freedom to control one's own fate that combines the cultural flavor and emotional resonance of the works of Khaled Hosseini, Jhumpa Lahiri, and Lisa See. In Kabul, 2007, Rahima and her sisters can only sporadically attend school and can rarely leave the house. Their only hope lies in the ancient custom of bacha posh, which allows young Rahima to dress and be treated as a boy until she is of marriageable age.

    Kaboul, 2007 : les Talibans font la loi dans les rues. Avec un père toxicomane et sans frère, Rahima et ses sœurs ne peuvent quitter la maison. Leur seul espoir réside dans la tradition des bacha posh, qui permettra à la jeune Rahima de se travestir jusqu'à ce qu'elle soit en âge de se marier. Elle jouit alors d'une liberté qui va la transformer à jamais, comme le fit, un siècle plus tôt, son ancêtre Shekiba.
