“This is an astonishing novel, at once a glimpse into the mind of a brave and imaginative heroine and a dizzying, gritty, and shockingly real snapshot of Indian city life.”
-Sangu Mandanna, Author of The Lost Girl
Kamada lives in a world of magic. A world of gremlins, fairies and talking objects that shield her from a society where strange men act like they own the women walking down the street, and where her mother gives up her body in exchange for a life of luxury.
The dirty streets of Bombay do not feel like home to Kamada. She knows she does not belong, and her mother’s house feels like a prison. To escape, Kammy wants to leave India to go study in America. Only her magical friends and a neighboring family know that her wish is getting closer to becoming a reality every day.
Follow Kammy as she bucks tradition in her quest to pass the GRE and follow her dreams. Will she be able to leave the land of curries and rickshaws?
