Summary Seventeen-year-old Ameera Hassan has just finished school and her friendship with Tariq, her best friend's older brother, is growing. But when her father hears of it he sends Ameera to stay with his family in Kashmir and attend her cousin Jamila's wedding. Only when she gets there does she discover that her father's plans are for her to marry a wealthy cousin, not Jamila. When her uncle takes her passport and return ticket away, and confiscates her mobile phone, Ameera is trapped. She will have to go through with the marriage. With the help of an organisation that rescues girls in Ameera′s situation, she must demonstrate strength beyond her years to escape from Pakistan and win her freedom
