"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)

Rani and Sukh
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.
