Wadjda is a born rebel: the girl who breaks the rules, giggles in assembly, gets kicked out of class. (You know the one.) But there’s one big difference: Wadjda lives in Soudi Arabia, where being a girl with a mind of her own is a major social crime. So far she’s always got away with it. But now Wadjda has a crazy new scheme: she wants to race her male friend Abdullah on her very own bike. So – what’s the problem? 1) Her parents forbid it. 2) In Saudi Arabia, girls have to be proper and modest all the time. And when Wadjda decides to break the rules, she learns that freedom comes at a high price…
