Ana Djakanovic, a a sixteen-year-old Muslim girl from Montenegro, has a lot on her plate. She is forced to leave Montenegro for personal safety. She is a Muslim girl in a tiny area of mostly Orthodox and Serbs where her family has a farm. Unexpectedly, in the generally calm Montenegro, some teen-age girls are raped. Ana's family decides it would be safter for their beautiful daughter in the USA. They send her to live with distant cousins in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn where she discovers romance, discrimination, and danger once again in the nearby school she attends, not to mention a less than welcoming family.
