The pearl that broke its shell by Nadia Hashimi( Book )

37 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 1,703 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Kabul, 2007, with a drug-addicted father and no brothers, Rahima and her sisters can only sporadically attend school, and can rarely leave the house. Their only hope lies in the ancient custom of bacha posh, which allows young Rahima to dress and be treated as a boy until she is of marriageable age. As a son, she can attend school, go to the market, and chaperone her older sisters. But Rahima is not the first in her family to adopt this unusual custom. A century earlier, her great-aunt, Shekiba, left orphaned by an epidemic, saved herself and built a new life the same way. Crisscrossing in time, the novel interweaves the tales of these two women separated by a century who share similar destinies. But what will happen once Rahima is of marriageable age? Will Shekiba always live as a man? And if Rahima cannot adapt to life as a bride, how will she survive?

One day, Obayda's aunt has an idea to bring the family luck -- dress Obayda, the youngest of her sisters, as a boy, a bacha posh. Now Obayda is Obayd. Life in this in-between place is confusing, but once Obayda meets another bacha posh, everything changes. The two of them can explore the village on their own, climbing trees, playing sports, and more.

Rahíma alig serdül még, amikor egy deresedő szakállú, nagy hatalmú hadúrhoz kényszeríti kokainfüggő apja, negyedik feleségnek. Pedig a lány éppen csak felhagyott a fiúszereppel, amelyet lánytestvérei között kellett vállalnia egy ősi afgán szokás szerint. Sokáig egyetlen vigasza a családi legendárium egyik nőalakja, Sekíba, aki száz évvel ezelőtt ugyancsak férfiszerepbe kényszerült élete egy szakaszán: a sah háremét kellett őriznie. Sekíbának is el kellett szenvednie a szeretetnélküliséget és a rabszolgasorsot a nagycsaládban, ahová árván került. Ám a férfiak és az idősebb nőrokonok abszolút uralma alatt is ki mert állni jogaiért. Ez ad erőt a napjainkban élő Rahímának, akinek egy ponton már a puszta élete is kockán forog. De milyen esélyei lehetnek a kitörésre, a menekülésre, ha minden lépését figyelik? Két afgán nő sorsának alakulását követhetjük nyomon ebben a felkavaró regényben, mely közel hozza egy távoli kultúra hétköznapjait
