Set in the fifteen lanes that comprise Mumbai's red light district Fifteen Lanes compellingly explores class, race and gender through the alternating voices of two teenage protagonists. Noor lives in a Mumbai brothel with her mother and siblings and is immensely grateful for the chance to go to school, hoping it will help her escape being sold into the sex trade. Grace is the Canadian daughter of the CEO of one of Mumbai's largest banks. When the two eventually meet at a NGO support centre for women and children, their lives and perspectives are irrevocably changed.

display_description "Noor has lived all of her fourteen years in the fifteen lanes of Mumbai's red light district. Born into a brothel, she is destined for the same fate as her mother: a desperate life trapped in the city's sex trade. She must act soon to have any chance of escaping this grim future. Across the sprawling city, fifteen-year-old Grace enjoys a life of privilege. Her father, the CEO of one of India's largest international banks, has brought his family to Mumbai where they live in unparalleled luxury. But Grace's seemingly perfect life is shattered when she becomes a victim of a cruel online attack. When their paths intersect, Noor and Grace will be changed forever. Can two girls living in vastly different worlds find a common path?"--provided by publisher.
