Fozia stiffened when she saw the familiar brick-kiln chimney loom ahead. Black smoke spewed into the sky – so it was working again. What if the owner recognised her?
Twelve-year-old Fozia has survived the worst flood in Pakistan’s history. But her life will never be the same. With her parents missing, Fozia now lives with Jehan’s family in a new village. As she slowly rebuilds her life, she fears everything could fall apart if her secret is uncovered … or if the brick-kiln owner finds her.
To keep the memories of her family alive in her heart, Fozia tells her friends a fairytale. Prince Zal rides a magic carpet on a quest to find his little sister, battling leopards and dangerous fairies along the way. But can he succeed if the truth behind Fozia’s story is revealed?
