I read this book in one day. The writing was so powerful and poignant in the story of Ajay, who was born in Delhi, India, but grew up in America, that I was drawn into his life as he struggled to make a place for himself. A father who was a drunk, an older brother who required round the clock care for the rest of his life after a near drowning, a mother who took care of his invalid brother and an American culture that was so different that what his Indian heritage expected of him caused a lot of sadness as well as humor, particularly as he searched for girlfriends in high school. I was just as impressed with this book as I was with Sharma’s An Obedient Father.
