"In this atmospheric novel, the tension and turbulence of the 1947 partition of Pakistan and India springs to "bloody, poignant life" (Kirkus Reviews) through the first-person stories of three teens: Tariq, an ambitious Muslim desperate for a university education in England; Margaret, a spoiled British girl with a scandalous past; and Anupreet, a Sikh maid just hoping to survive during uncertain times. Readers will be caught up in the lives of all three characters as they're confronted with tough decisions about their relationships and their futures.
