Summary
A moving story of one child's life in a conflict zone: Shahana, a young girl living in war-torn Kashmir. 'Open your eyes. We will not hurt you.' The boy quietens; his eyes open. 'Where are you from?' The boy stares at them both; then says, 'Who will you tell?' Shahana lives alone with her young brother in the shadow of the Line of Control, the border patrolled by Pakistani and Indian soldiers that divides Kashmir in two. Life is hard, but Shahana ekes out a living with her beautiful embroidery. Then she finds a boy lying unconscious near the border. Zahid is from across the Line of Control, and Shahana takes a terrible risk by sheltering him. But how can she give Zahid up to the authorities when she knows he'll be imprisoned - or worse?
