The horrors of being an Indian or girl
Beautiful written almost poetic at times, with a childish innocence to it.
Hiwever the content is not childish, it is brutish raw, and shocking, explaining the the lives of the two Indian girls Poornima and Savitha as they become friends and then part company due to circumstances.(No spoilers)
My only criticism is the ending was very weak when it had packed such a owerful punch throughout the book,
Narration was excellent, delivered at times with almost a tear in the narrators voice.
