Reviews

"There is a twist in the tale--and it is a clever one."--San Francisco Chronicle
"A beautifully written novel that takes the reader through the shrouded world of one woman whose only crime is being a woman.... I loved this riveting book."--Deborah Rodriguez, New York Times bestselling author of Kabul Beauty School
"A lovely, diverting and moving tale of contemporary Kabul, about love, courage, passion, tyranny and cricket. Murari has an uncommon tale to tell, and does so with imagination and empathy."--Shashi Tharoor, award-winning author of The Great Indian Novel
"A moving, splendidly realized story of courage and grit in modern-day Kabul. I was won over by Murari's uplifting and vastly entertaining sporting tale, which reaffirms the power of friendship, fellowship, and love in the face of all forms of tyranny."--Vikas Swarup, author of Slumdog Millionaire and Six Suspects
"Fans of Khaled Hosseini's The Kite Runner will here find a similarly uplifting story about good people surviving their horrific circumstances. . . . Murari has crafted a tense, compelling story."--Library Journal
