Some things aren�t meant to be. They really aren�t. But some things are. The Surrogate is a powerful tale of finding out who we really are and a breathtaking account of pure, unadulterated love. The narrator, Faraz, paints a heart wrenching portrait of what it means to keep a promise and to stand by someone when the world is falling down around them. Amidst times of happiness, funerals, reunions, love, turmoil, Faraz and Fahad stick together. At times they are inseparable; at times they are hanging by a thread. It is only when the truth reveals itself that everything seems to fall apart. Fahad is faced with the biggest decision he will ever have to make; should he go back to those who cared for him but also lied? Or should he look forward to the horizon, dreaming of better days?
