The book starts with the story of Nada, an eleventh grader in the al-Khatwa Secondary School for Girls located in Bawadi al-Naseem. It is one of three high schools in the city, and it enrolls about six hundred students in grades 10 through 12. Most high school girls in Bawadi al-Naseem, Nada included, spend their days between home and school, making school an important space in their lives. Nada has lived in Bawadi al-Naseem all of her life and has studied at al-Khatwa since tenth grade. She is known among her friends as the peacemaker as she is always resolving disputes between friends. Nada studies hard and hopes to go to college, although it is unclear whether she can achieve this goal since her grades are not very strong.
