Sara Farizan’s “If You Could Be Mine (ALGONQUIN)” Reading & Book Signing
A seventeen-year-old girl in Iran longs to carry on her relationship with her best friend Nasrin in public, but their country is a dangerous place for two women in love. When Nasrin’s parents announce they have an arranged marriage set for their daughter, Nasrin believes that she and Sahar can carry on in private with the comforts provided by her soon-to-be husband. But Sahar has a different plan: sexual reassignment surgery so that she and Nasrin can legally be together. Is it worth changing who she is, though, to be with the one she loves?
