Description
Sixteen-year-old orphan Zarin Wadia is a brilliant, reckless student. She is the kind of girl that parents warn their children to avoid. Her numerous relationships are the talk of the school. Why then has Porus Dumasia always been crazy about her? How did the two of them end up dead in the same car on a highway in Saudi Arabia? When the religious police come to investigate, everything that people once thought about Zarin is put into question. She was much more than just a girl like that.

display_description"Una exploración atemporal de los romances arriesgados, el autodescubrimiento y lo que somos capaces de hacer para amar y ser amados. Zarin Wadia, de dieciséis años, es una estudiante brillante y vivaz, además de huérfana y temeraria. Y también es la clase de chica de la que los padres advierten a sus hijos que se mantengan alejados: una joven problemática cuyos numerosos romances son objeto de infinidad de cotilleos en el colegio. «No te conviene mezclarte con una chica como ella», dicen. Entonces, ¿cómo es que Porus Dumasia, de dieciocho años, siempre ha estado colado por ella? ¿Y cómo acabaron Zarin y Porus muertos en el mismo vehículo tras estrellarse en una autopista de Yeda, en Arabia Saudí? Cuando la policía religiosa llega al lugar de los hechos, aquello que todo el mundo creía saber acerca de Zarin queda en entredicho. Y, a medida que se reconstruye su historia, relatada a través de múltiples perspectivas, queda claro que Zarin era mucho más que solo «una chica como ella». Esta novela (que posee un precioso estilo narrativo y supone el debut de Tanaz Bhathena) descubre a los lectores un nuevo mundo, exuberante y maravilloso. Además, aborda temas complejos como la raza, la identidad, las clases sociales y la religión, y compone un retrato de la ambición, la angustia, la rebeldía y la alienación juveniles que resulta a la vez imaginativo y universal."-- In Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, sixteen-year-old half-Hindu/half-Parsi Zarin Wadia is the class troublemaker and top subject for the school rumor blogs, regularly leaving class to smoke cigarettes in cars with boys, but she also desperately wants to grow up and move out of her aunt and uncle's house, perhaps realizing too late that Porus, another non-Muslim Indian who risks deportation but remains devoted to Zarin, could help her escape. When the two end up dead in a car on a highway in Jeddah, it becomes clear she was far more than a "girl like that."
