"Again, Staples imbues Shabanu and her beautiful, brutally repressive world with a splendid reality that transcends the words on the page. Admirers of the intelligent and courageous Shabanu will thirst for more."--Starred, Kirkus Reviews "Engrossing . . . a swiftly moving adventure story, set in modern Pakistan."--School Library Journal, Starred "Staples brews a potent mix here. . . . Haveli will hold readers with rapt attention."--Booklist, Starred "Staples's portrayal of Pakistan is remarkably even-handed: she acknowledges the society's inequities while celebrating its beauty and warmth. Intoxicating."--Publishers Weekly, Starred From the Paperback edition.
