By Kamila Shamsie

Published Oct 2000

The Dard-e-Dils are known for their clavicles and love of stories. Aliya may not have inherited her family’s patrician looks, but she is just as much a prey to their legends. They have plenty of stories to tell and secrets to hide, particularly the curse of ‘not-quite’ twins, and soon after Aliya falls for a boy from the wrong side of the tracks she begins to believe she is another ‘not-quite’ twin, cosmically connected with her romantic, scandalous Aunt Mariam, in a way that hardly bodes well.
