A teenage girl adjusts to life on the Canadian embassy in Islamabad (Pakistan), facing adjustment struggles and dynamics at her new school. Meanwhile, tension in the city is high. The book was much better than I expected (I’m really tired of YA books where the main character spends most of the time crushing on some vaguely inappropriate guy), with character depth and an interesting setting. Nothing spectacular, however.

Really compelling book - beautiful writing. Looking forward to another book by this author...
