Publisher's Summary

Perfect for fans of Rita Williams-Garcia, Thanhha Lai, and Rebecca Stead, internationally best-selling author Nadia Hashimi's first novel for young listeners is a coming-of-age journey set in modern-day Afghanistan that explores life as a bacha posh - a preteen girl dressed as a boy.
Obayda's family is in need of some good fortune, and her aunt has an idea to bring the family luck - dress Obayda, the youngest of four sisters, as a boy, a bacha posh.
Life in this in-between place is confusing, but once Obayda meets another bacha posh, everything changes. Their transformation won't last forever, though - unless the two best friends can figure out a way to make it stick and make their newfound freedoms endure.
Nadia Hashimi's first novel for adults, The Pearl That Broke Its Shell, was a best seller that shares a bacha posh character with One Half from the East.
