Their transformation won't last forever, though--unless the two best friends can figure out a way to make it stick and make their newfound freedoms endure.Nadia Hashimi's first novel for adults, The Pearl That Broke Its Shell, was a bestseller that shares a bacha posh character with One Half from the East.
