'A treat for Ferrante fans, exploring the bonds of friendship and how female ambition beats against the strictures of poverty and patriarchal societies' Huffington PostAn electrifying debut novel - the story of the unbreakable bond between two girls driven apart, and their journeys across continents to find each other again. Poornima and Savitha, born in poverty, have known little kindness in their lives until they meet as teenagers.

When an act of devastating cruelty drives Savitha away, Poornima leaves behind everything she has ever known to find her friend. Alternating between the girls' perspectives as they face apparently insurmountable obstacles on their travels through the darkest corners of India's underworld and across an ocean, Girls Burn Brighter introduces two heroines who refuse to lose the hope that burns within.
