Some brief overview of book

"Soneela Nankani narrates this painful coming-of-age story in a subdued style that draws even more sympathy from the listener... This is an expertly told story of survival, courage, and grit that fans of world literature will enjoy." - AudioFile Magazine Girls Burn Brighter is a searing, electrifying debut audiobook set in India and America. Irrepressible author Shobha Rao examines the extraordinary bond between two girls, driven apart by circumstances, but relentless in their search for one another.

Poornima and Savitha have three strikes against them. They are poor. They are driven.

And they are girls. When Poornima was just a toddler, she was about to fall into a river. Her mother, beside herself, screamed at her father to grab her.

But he hesitated "I was standing there, and I was thinkingShes just a girl. Let her goThats the thing with girls, isnt itYou think, Push. Thats all it would take.

Just one little push." After her mothers death, Poornima has very little kindness in her life. She is left to take care of her siblings until her father can find her a suitable match. So when Savitha enters their household, Poornima is intrigued by the joyful, independent-minded girl.

Suddenly their Indian village doesn't feel quite so claustrophobic, and Poornima begins to imagine a life beyond the arranged marriage her father is desperate to secure for her. But when a devastating act of cruelty drives Savitha away, Poornima leaves behind everything she has ever known to find her friend. Her journey takes her into the darkest corners of India's underworld, on a harrowing cross-continental journey, and eventually to an apartment complex in Seattle.

Alternating between the girls perspectives as they face ruthless obstacles, Girls Burn Brighter introduces listeners to two heroines who never allow the hope that burns within them to be extinguished. More praise for Girls Burn Brighter "A searing portrait of what feminism looks like in much of the world, Shobha Rao's first novel, Girls Burn Brighter... follows an incandescent friendship." Vogue "The resplendent prose captures the nuances and intensity of two best friends on the brink of an uncertain and precarious adulthood... An incisive study of a friendship's unbreakable bond." - Kirkus "In this harsh but vibrant debut, two best friends navigate the landscape of India at the dawn of the new millennium.

Rao's feminist commentary is particularly potent, situating a powerful bond in restrictive, patriarchal structures." Entertainment Weekly
