Product Description

Review

"Gritty, urban, streetwise story shot through acerbic wit and compassionate humour like letters through candy rock, empowering and investing hope in young people to create their own future while respecting their past" (The School Librarian)

"This bitter-sweet story hurtles towards its inevitable conclusion, which is both frustratingly honest and overwhelmingly powerful. It is a heart-wrenching love story that will exert its power over you long after the book is finished" (Claudia Mody The Bookseller)

"Rai's snappily-written dialogue and stream-of-consciousness narrative create a vivid, fast-moving take on the Romeo & Juliet story" (Booktrust)

"This is a novel which challenges assumptions abour race, gender roles and family loyalties" (Irish Times)

"It is well executed with convincing dialogue, humour and lively and believable main characters acting as teenagers of today do" (Inis)

Book Description

An Asian Romeo & Juliet tale from the author of (Un)Arranged Marriage

Absolutely LOVED this book - Bali Rai is an extremely talented writer, the story is heartbreakingly brilliant, and I cried SO much! Was SO hooked that I read it all within one day... and I've never read a book in one day before - once you start you won't be able to put it down! Really wish he would rewrite the ending though ;-)

One of the best books I've ever read!! Indian Romeo & Juliet.. Totally gripping from start to finish could not put the book down .. I haven't read many books but I would recommend this book strongly to anyone who wants a truly good read.

Bargain for the price less than a fiver.. money well worth spending..

Buy it you wont regret it.

I'd say this book is aimed for anyone 16+ and it is an absolutely fantastic read. The story is full of surprises, entwined with roots of punjabi culture added with a very modern day twist. You will not want to put this book down - literally. Bali Rai is a great author indeed. I'd also recommend 'Arranged marriage'.

I bought this book because it was compared to Romeo and Juliet. Firstly, you cannot compared Rani and Sukh to Romeo and Juliet; it is not on par with it.
I did like the separate sections from Sukh, Rani etc however they were not always presented through the 1st person and the charactes eyes, as it was a mere continuation of the story to maintain "the flow". At times the plot was very predictable, which meant there was no real reason to continue with the book, knowing for well what would happen.Certain parts were over the top and lowered the tone. What kid impersonates a police officer?
The writer opened the book with a great deal of suspense, tension and drama, which ended abruptly and jumped to the present day. This was my favourite part and from there on, it was a little disappointing and bland.
If you are looking for a quick read(though the "ghetto-slang" becomes very irritating and sloppy after a while), easy plot to follow, nothing complex or too taxing, a vague insight to Indian culture then this is a good book for you.

I loved this book, it is totally gripping from the beginning to the end! I couldn't put it down! Fantastic, accurate portrayal of issues that affect the Asian youth of today, especially those living in the West. I would recommend this book strongly to anyone who wants a truly good read.

Great Book. Wish it was a little longer and more descriptive. You can relate to each character's emotions. Just wish more detail was given to each characters personality and image. Bali Rai has done well in taking the story from 1960 to modern times and bringing all those emotions through with it. Just wished it was expressed a little more. Great Read.

Wife bought this for the kindle for use in writing exam papers for gcse english, it is ideal as you can pick a certain word and highlight it and search and kindle finds all references to that word saves having to read the whole book. an ideal tool.
