In the week before she starts university, she is introduced to Handan—a beautiful, gentle girl who will change Behiye’s life forever. Immediately drawn to one another, the two girls embark upon an intense relationship, even though they are from completely different backgrounds with different dreams and ambitions.

?An intense and occasionally tender tale? Guardian A breathless, feverishly written novel that captures the giddy, dizzy rollercoaster highs and lows of love unfolding -- Uncut ?Not since Salinger?s Catcher in the Rye has a writer animated adolescent anguish so vividly and compellingly? Magden?s portrait of contemporary Turkey transcends the tired clich?s around the conflict of oriental and occidental values? gripping and * just when you thought it might finally be within your grasp? New Internationalist *
