Faten’s happy life in her village comes to an abrupt end when her father arranges for her to work as a servant for a wealthy Beirut couple with two spoiled daughters. What does a bright, ambitious seventeen-year-old do when she is suddenly deprived of her friends, family, education and freedom?
Fatima Sharafeddine is an award-winning Lebanese writer who has twice been nominated for the prestigious Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award.

She has taught preschool in Houston, and Arabic language and culture classes at Rice University.
