What it’s about:
Azra is sixteen, smart and knows how to get what she wants. When she wins a place in a state chemistry competition, she thinks her biggest problem is getting her parents’ permission to go.
But she doesn’t know they’re busy arranging her marriage to a cousin she’s barely met. In Pakistan, in three months’ time.
Azra always thought she’d finish high school with her friends, but now her dreams of going to university are overshadowed. And it all becomes more complicated when her Uncle sees her with Pratik.
Can she find a way to do what she wants, while keeping her parents happy? Or must she choose between being a good daughter and her own freedom?
