Amal Unbound

(2) 4-6 When a car grazes Pakistani girl Amal, she stands up to the rude stranger who emerges from it. The man is Jawad Sahib, son of the town's villainous landlord, who forces Amal into indentured servitude to pay back family debts. Short chapters and unadorned prose make this heartwrenching yet hopeful contemporary story accessible and direct, with Amal's emotions and strength anchoring the narrative as she uncovers the Sahibs' criminal activity.
