The Girl With Borrowed Wings

An unforgettable debut novel about love and freedom.

Sixteen year-old westerner Frenenqer Paje’s life in the Middle East is a series of cages, but Frenenqer’s life changes forever when she rescues a dying cat from the marketplace. The cat is actually a boy named Sangris, and the two embark on many nighttime adventures. But when their friendship blossoms into something more, Frenenqer must face her greatest fear—her father—or risk losing Sangris forever.

"The Girl With Borrowed Wings stands in a category of its own making. . . .Rossetti's style hearkens back to Margaret Atwood's literary prowess with humanity's frailties, edgy humor and limitless imagination. . . .Different, quirky, memorable for all the right reasons." — USA Today’s Happy Ever After
