Summary
Ajay and Birju play cricket in the streets of Delhi, waiting for the day their plane tickets will arrive. Finally joining their father in America, Ajay and Birju enjoy their new, extraordinary life in New York. Then tragedy strikes, leaving one brother incapacitated and the other practically orphaned in this strange land
Summary
The Mishras move from India to New York City in the 1980s in order to give their two sons better educational opportunities. When tragedy strikes, the family tries to recover the optimism and hope that propelled them to America. Beautiful, clear-eyed and compelling, this book packs a powerful punch. -- Anbolyn Potter for LibraryReads
