How can a barely adolescent girl, with her dreams and projects, grow up in a land devastated by the consequences of global warming while illegal traditions that will make her a child bride are still in force? Afrin, hailing from the lower coast of Bangladesh, along the Brahmaputra river, is torn between the impositions of an extended family who want her to marry at twelve years of age and the recurring devastating floods in a land made virtually impracticable because of climate change. When her home is submerged by water, Afrin decides to leave behind the only world she has ever known. She sets out for a dangerous journey on a boat towards one of the most densely populated cities in the world to meet the father whom she’s never met. In Dhaka, a city overflowing with dangers and mysteries, Afrin is faced with the most unexpected adventures, but she manages to become friends with a group of orphans. While she keeps alive the hope of being reunited with her father, she is also in search of a better life for herself. (l.f.)
