House of Djinn

House of Djinn

Muti lives with her relatives and suffers death by"a thousand pinpricks" at the hands of Leyla. Her cousin, Jameel, is her best friend, but he lives in San Francisco, so their time together is short. Set in Pakistan, this is the third in a trilogy of books telling the story of Shabanu. Shabanu is Muti's mother, and she has gone into hiding to guard herself and her daughter from a power-hungry relative. Her daughter does not know her mother is still alive. Fascinating story of the intricate conflicts and responsibilities of families in this culture, so unlike the lives of American teens. 224 pages Ages 11 and up
