Portugal, 1967. S nia thinks she knows what her future holds. She'll become a poet, and together she and her artist boyfriend, Z Miguel, will rise above the government restrictions that shape their lives. The restrictions on what S nia can do and where she can go without a man's permission. The restrictions on what music she can enjoy, what books she can read, what questions she can ask.

But when Z Miguel is arrested for anti-government activities and S nia's family's restaurant is shut down, S nia's plans are upended. No longer part of the comfortable middle class, she's forced to leave school and take a low-paying, grueling, dangerous job. She thought she understood the dark sides of her world, but now she sees suffering she never imagined.

Without the protection of her boyfriend or her family, can S nia find a way to fight for justice? This poignant novel in verse follows a teen girl discovering how to resist tyranny and be true to herself.
