'Having been to the brothels and red-light district I Kick and I Fly so searingly captures, I can testify that this book is essential reading... Ruchira Gupta is nothing less than a great hero, and in her book, she has created one in Heera, as she seeks to defy the destiny of rape that poverty and men have assigned her.' Ashley Judd

'Ruchira Gupta gives readers an empathetic and unflinching glimpse into a world little known to outsiders. Visceral, prismatic detail lend an authentic sense of place, while Heera herself anchors the tale and pulls us in.' Natalie C Anderson, author of City of Saints & Thieves

'A powerhouse of a debut. Ruchira Gupta has crafted a page-turner of a read, stepped in place and full of indelible characters, managing to be at once propulsive and enlightening, infuriating and inspiring. But maybe most important, Heera’s story is a beacon of hope to a generation of young people trying to transform an unjust world.' Gayle Forman, author of If I Stay

'Simply magnificent. A beautifully tender and sensitive exploration of one girl’s fight to reclaim her body in a world where the sex trade is seen as inescapable. I challenge anyone to read Heera’s story and be unmoved... I am so grateful for the chance to have read Heera’s story and to have been a part of her journey to self-empowerment.’ Ayaan Mohamud, author of You Think You Know Me

'A triumphant debut.' Kirkus Reviews

'Incredibly moving story of Heera, who battles, quite literally, for freedom in the face of manifold horrors. The eye-opening courage and strength of these characters will stay with me.' Louisa Reid, author of Gloves Off

»

«

'Compelling page turner… and very uplifting.' BBC Woman’s Hour presenter, Nuala McGovern

»

«

'A compelling, realistic and hopeful novel.’ Five Books, Best Books for Teens of 2023

»

«

Its hopeful elements are grounded in reality, never veering into wish-fulfilment… It works as a story first and foremost, making the message and the hope all the more powerful. Expect this book to win many prizes, and to leave readers with a lot of feelings.’ Irish Times
