Product Details

Praise

“Whether describing the heat of a Delhi summer or the emotions of a homesick preteen in a strange land, Darnton gets the details right, bringing characters and story to life and also educating readers about the economic discrepancies rampant in India. Blond American Chloe’s perspective gives Western readers a way into this tale of inequality in a foreign culture.” —Kirkus Reviews 
 
“The heart of the story—standing up for others, despite social or economic class—can offer a good discussion for readers and hopefully get them thinking about those around them.” —Booklist 
 
“An informed and informative work of fiction that incorporates eye-opening facts about poverty and social systems outside of the United States while never losing the protagonist’s authentic and relatable voice. Evocative in setting, sympathetic in character, and noble in intent, this story is for armchair travelers and seekers of fairness and friendship.” —The Bulletin
