Product Details


“(A) heartfelt story. Besides having educational merit in conveying India’s culture, Perkins’ novel sensitively traces an American girl’s emotional growth.”—Publisher’s Weekly
“(Perkins) enlightens readers not familiar with the richness of Indian culture. In Bollywood fashion, she turns turmoil into happy endings.”—Kirkus Reviews
“This debut novel … vividly evokes the smells, sights, and sounds of India in the monsoon season. Perkins folds interesting questions about caste discrimination, charity, and the challenges of growing up with a heroic parent into her warm, romantic story, which shows how the deepest private discoveries often come from very public risks.”—Booklist 
“This realistic and romantic novel unobtrusively incorporates details of Indian life and culture.”—School Library Journal
