Climbing the Stairs is a predictable yet worthy read. Why predictable? Because early in the book the reader can see where it is going and more or less how it will end. Why worthy? Because this book is told from a young woman's point of view as she struggles with family and social traditions in India in this coming of age novel. Descriptions of Indian clothing, food, customs and celebrations give us peeks inside the Hindi culture.

Mariana Salcedo | 1 comments Climbing the Stairs is a interesting book and it is very easy to read. I recommend this book but mostly to young girls. The main character, Vidya, talks about her troubles as an Indian woman. The book explains India's culture and traditions during World War II. There is some unexpected love and adventure which makes the story enjoyable.
