    The novel describes Zilayefa s search for direction and purpose, her admiration for her city friends, her concern about her lack of a father and her racial identity, and her affair with a powerful older man She is a sympathetic character and her voice seems authentic.

    More of a morality tale than a real novel It was insightful, contained a lot of truth, and wasn t boring at all, but didn t deliver much else.
