It is 1983 and 13 year old Reha is juggling very separate lives at school and at home. Her parents from India refuse to acknowledge that Reha is growing up at least partly American. Reha wants to fit in at school but she also wants her parents to be proud of her; sometimes it feels like she doesn’t fully belong anywhere. A whole other dimension of struggle is added to Reha’s life when her mother is diagnosed with leukemia. An intimate novel in verse.
