The wild ones : a broken anthem for a girl nation / Nafiza Azad.

Azad, Nafiza, (author.).


After Paheli escapes a terrible fate, a magical boy gives her access to the Between, allowing her to collect other women of color, hurt by men, and lead them when the boy is in peril.
Paheli was once betrayed by her mother and sold to a man in exchange for a favor. When Paheli escapes, she runs headlong into a boy with stars in his eyes. This boy, as battered as she is, tosses Paheli a box of stars before disappearing. With the stars she gains access to the Between, a place of pure magic and mystery. Paheli collects girls like herself, and these Wild Ones use their magic to travel the world, helping the hopeless and saving others from the fates they suffered. But Taraana, the boy who gave them the stars, is on the run from powerful forces within the world of magic. And if Taraana is no longer safe and free, neither are the Wild Ones. -- adapted from jacket
