Sixteen-year-old Zarin is many things: a bright and vivacious student, an orphan, a risk taker. She’s also the kind of girl that parents warn their kids to stay away from: a troublemaker whose many romances are the subject of endless gossip. So how is it that 18-year-old Porus has only ever had eyes for her? And how did Zarin and Porus end up dead in a car together, crashed on the side of a highway in Saudi Arabia? When the religious police arrive on the scene, everything everyone thought they knew about Zarin is questioned. And as her story is pieced together, told through multiple perspectives, it becomes clear that she was far more than just a girl like that.
