This is like a community of poor and homeless women who could be living anywhere in the Islamic world. I liked Laila, the 17 year old rebel. I also liked several of the stories. Some of them were folkloric, but others were directed toward people in the community in response to events. I particularly liked the story about the girl with the imaginary friend. I also liked the gentle satire of the anthropologist author as a very peculiar bee.
