We are thrilled to be revealing the cover for A Girl Like That by Tanaz Bhathena, which releases on February 27, 2018 from FSG/Macmillan.
But before we get to the gorgeous cover, here’s a little bit about the book:
Sixteen-year-old Zarin Wadia is many things: a bright and vivacious student, an orphan, a risk-taker. She’s also a troublemaker whose romantic entanglements are the subject of endless gossip among her classmates. You don’t want to get involved with a girl like that, they say. So how is it that eighteen-year-old Porus Dumasia has only ever had eyes for her? And how did Zarin and Porus end up dead in a car together, crashed on the side of a highway in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia? When the religious police arrive on the scene, everything everyone thought they knew about Zarin is questioned. And as her story is pieced together, told through multiple perspectives, it becomes clear that she was far more than just a girl like that. This beautifully written debut novel from Tanaz Bhathena is a timeless exploration of high-stakes romance, self-discovery, and the lengths we’ll go to love and be loved.
