"[Faten’s story] will draw in young readers preoccupied with society, challenging parents and their own fears." — New York Times
"Fans of literary and historical fiction will be drawn to this rich portrayal of the challenges faced and opportunities forged by brave young women in patriarchal, war-torn Lebanon." — Kirkus Reviews
"Shortly after he enters his building, the young man appears in his apartment. Faten watches his movements from the corner of the little window in her room. He appears here. Disappears. Reappears there. He plays the piano sometimes, and Faten watches. Her heart jumps at every glimpse she gets of him."
