The little box is on the shelf. She is allowed to look at it and to touch it.
I am not allowed to open it.
She is not allowed to open it.
For as long as she can remember, Nour has lived with Youmna. Youmna is beautiful and gentle and good, and she smells like the wind. She’s also deaf. But Youmna is not Nour’s mother, even though she wishes she was.
Youmna’s journey begins without warning. The men come to drive Nour to a new life faraway, in a better place for girls like her. All she can take with her is a little box and the memory of Youmna’s loving hands.
The story of one girl’s journey through adolescence, across borders and through a well-guarded secret.
