Twelve-year-old Amal lives in a poor Pakistani village and dreams of being a teacher. As the eldest daughter, she has to stay home from school to take care of her younger sisters while her mother is bedridden. After an accidental run-in with the son of the corrupt village landlord, she is taken from her home to the opulent Khan estate where she becomes an indentured servant. Her chances of returning home are slim as she learns just how powerful the Khan family is. Amal’s bravery and resilience help her to persevere. mjw
