|Set in war-torn Kabul, a harrowing yet tender novel--think "Bend It Like Beckham" in a burka--about one woman''s courage and guile in the face of terror and tyranny.|
From the Publisher:
In war-torn Kabul, Rukshana, a spirited young journalist, devises a clever scheme to ensure her and her family's freedom by entering them in a cricket tournament where the winner will travel to Pakistan to train and then play at an international level. 30,000 first printing.
"[The] novel offers the usual low comedy and big-game suspense of sports novels, but the best action occurs away from the pitch." - Tom Leclair 07/22/2012
