really liked it
bookshelves: forest-of-reading

It's a very interesting book. The emotions, characters, and plot are all very unique and interesting. This book is written in verse, something I'm unsure of. One POV, Maya, had some very interesting poems. The ones that were the most interesting were those that were call and effect across the page. However in Maya's POV their were a few chapters that were basically sentence that were awkwardly entered, and not so pretty. The other POV, Sandeep, had no flowery poetry. This was also written in verse, but I think this would have faired better if this was paragraphs, in turn letting Maya's POV being a little bit more flowery. The actual plot was interesting and very well told. This book taught me a lot about cultures in India. Also I feel that some people feel that because people are of a different skin colour etc, that they are different. This book shows that they're exactly the same as us. That they have the same hopes, desires. This book also shed light on historical events in India that I had no idea that they occurred. This book is an excellent read.

Victoria The book is written "in prose"? Did you mean "in verse"?

Me-Connie Whoops! I did. Thank you! I've changed it now.
