bookshelves: historical-fiction, youngadultfiction

I enjoyed the Indian setting and descriptions of life for a poor girl and her mother in late 18th century Calcutta. Will teens read it? Not unless forced. It drags at the beginning especially and the writing is florid and interspersed with more Bengali words and phrases than most teens will want to plow through.
