This study guide is based on the following version of this book: Farizan, Sara. If You Could Be Mine. New York: Workman Publishing, Sahar and Nasrin have loved each other since they were little girls. As they got older, that love deepened into a sexual relationship as well.
This is a side of Ali that Sahar has not seen before. It is also a side of Sahar that Nasrin has not seen before.
Granted, Sahar is new to this counterculture as well. Mother and Daughter drive them home. Parveen takes Sahar to a support group for people in various stages of transitioning between genders.
She does not fit in here, either. She is trying to figure out how to have the government pay for a gender reassignment surgery for her. That way, she figures, she can be with Nasrin. The events leading up to the wedding continue, without Sahar getting anywhere closer to her plan. Excruciatingly painful and awkward things happen as she gets more desperate. She gets caught trying on her father's clothes. She has to go dress shopping with Nasrin. It is during this outing that Nasrin's mother, Mrs.
Mehdi, warns Sahar that she should not feel jealous of Nasrin, and hints that best friends should stick together through even bad marriages. The girls also suffer through a Mehdi family party, where they try to get some incriminating information on Reza. They fail at this, too. Sahar goes to a support group for people who have had a gender reassignment. People who have gone through it want to make sure this is something she really wants to do, because it can be pretty traumatic.
Eventually, Parveen makes an appointment for her with the doctor who performed her surgery.
Several people try to dissuade Sahar from going through with the surgery. Ali says that it will not matter because Nasrin is not attracted to men. In the support group people say how disorienting and painful the surgery can be, and some doubt that she is doing it for the right reason.
She does not discuss this with Nasrin, really. She talks generally about it, but has not said how committed she is to the idea. When he recognizes her, this finally ends her dream of having the surgery to save her relationship with Nasrin. As Sahar weeps about the loss of her dream, Mother and Daughter bring Ali to the house. He has been badly beaten. Farshad wanted Parveen, and Ali forbid it. He cannot be seen any more.
He is not safe. Chapel Hill, N. Algonquin, Secondary senior high school: In Iran, where homosexuality is punishable by death, seventeen-year-olds Sahar and Nasrin love each other in secret until Nasrin's parents announce their daughter's arranged marriage and Sahar proposes a drastic solution.

Primary Entity http: CreativeWork , schema: But Iran is a dangerous place for two girls in love--Sahar and Nasrin could be beaten, imprisoned, even executed if their relationship came to light. Nasrin tries to persuade Sahar that they can go on as they had before, only now with new comforts provided by the decent, well-to-do doctor Nasrin will marry.
But Sahar dreams of loving Nasrin exclusively--and openly.
In Iran, homosexuality may be a crime, but to be a man trapped in a woman s body is seen as nature s mistake, and sex reassignment is legal and accessible. As a man, Sahar could be the one to marry Nasrin. Is saving her love worth sacrificing her true self?
