LONGLISTED FOR A PEN/FAULKNER AWARD, 2020A dazzling tribute to the resilience and determination of a remarkable community of womenIn the sprawling Bangalore slum of Heaven, five girls - Muslim, Christian and Hindu; gay and straight - form an unbreakable bond.

These are girls who refuse to be silenced, no matter how much their city would like to forget they exist.

But now Heaven is threatened by government bulldozers, and the friends must come together to protect the close-knit, vibrant community they call home.

Sparkling with passion and courage and laced with humour, this is the story of five unforgettable young women and their fierce determination, not only to survive, but to triumph.
