Described as Riyadh’s Sex and the City, Girls of Riyadh is a intriguing tale of Saudi Arabia’s hidden population, young upper-class women. Written through emails to a list-serve, the novel literally unveils the struggles and conflicts of four wealthy women, ever migrating between the freedom of Western culture and their traditional Islamic upbringings. The book is not preppy by any means, but a engaging tale about friendship and love.
