About: Priyanka Das has so many unanswered questions: Why did her mother abandon her home in India years ago? What was it like there? And most important, who is her father, and why did her mom leave him behind? But Pri’s mom avoids these questions – the topic of India is permanently closed. For Pri, her mothe’s homeland can only exist in her imagination. That is, until she finds a mysterious pashmina tucked away in a forgotten suitcase. When she wraps herself in it, she is transported to a place more vivid and colourful than any guidebook or Bollywood film. But is this the real India? And what is that shadow lurking in the background? To learn the truth, Pri must travel farther than she’s ever dared and find the family she never knew. In this heart-warming debut, Nidhi Chanani weaves a tale about the hardship and self-discovery that is born from juggling two cultures and two worlds.

    “That pashmina will allow women to see their choices. You shall no longer be bound by fear,” is my favorite quote from this book. This is one of the best graphic novels I have ever read. It talks about how women are not allowed to make their own choices in several parts of our country. I would definitely recommend this book, especially to girls all around the world and I think the author, Nidhi Chanani has done a great job in communicating the message of determination and courage.
