The Runaways

The Runaways

A Novel


Anita Rose lives in one of Karachi's biggest slums, languishing in poverty but aware that a larger destiny awaits her. Monty, whose father owns half of Karachi, realizes that his privileged life will never be the same again when the enigmatic and rebellious Layla joins his school. And far away in Portsmouth, Sunny fits in nowhere, drifting without a purpose-until he meets his charismatic, suntanned cousin Oz whose smile makes Sunny feel found.

These three disparate lives will cross paths in the middle of a desert, a place where life and death walk hand-in-hand, and where their closely guarded secrets will force them to make a terrible choice.
