NO MAJOR SPOILERS
This graphic novel tells the tale of Sarah who is almost 18 and who is bottled up at home by her family, forced to wash dishes and do all kinds of chores around the house.
She is aware of the problem – her brother gets away with anything because he is a boy and even has the bigger room while the family is contemplating shoving Sarah into the smaller servant’s room which is lying empty. Not that that happens, but Sarah is aware of it. Ayesha Tariq’s bright, bold illustrations and snappy text illustrate Sarah’s plight vividly.
