The compelling story of a girlâ€™s fight to regain her life and dreams after being forced into indentured servitude. Life is quiet and ordinary in Amalâ€™s Pakistani village, but she had no complaints, and besides, sheâ€™s busy pursuing her dream of becoming a teacher one day. Her dreams are temporarily dashed whenâ€“as the eldest daughterâ€“she must stay home from school to take care of her siblings. Amal is upset, but she doesnâ€™t lose hope and finds ways to continue learning. Then the unimaginable happensâ€“after an accidental run-in with the son of her villageâ€™s corrupt landlord, Amal must work as his familyâ€™s servant to pay off her own familyâ€™s debt.
Life at the opulent Khan estate is full of heartbreak and struggle for Amalâ€“especially when she inadvertently makes an enemy of a girl named Nabila. Most troubling, though, is Amalâ€™s growing awareness of the Khansâ€™ nefarious dealings. When it becomes clear just how far they will go to protect their interests, Amal realizes she will have to find a way to work with others if they are ever to exact change in a cruel status quo, and if Amal is ever to achieve her dreams.
