Delhi in the ’90s. And this time, it’s going to be Gudia’s summer. So what if she’s the quintessential awkward middle child? So what if it seems like everything – from the hair sprouting on her legs to teachers making her life miserable – is conspiring against her? She’s taking matters into her own hands, and there’s no way that she’s going to fail. After all, there are three things Gudia is obsessed with – basketball, the boy with the American accent…and winning. But in her desire to win this campaign of middle-school one-upmanship and conceal her plummeting grades, Gudia might just lose all that’s important to her – including herself.
Best-selling author Yashodhara Lal is back with this funny, bittersweet and entirely relatable story about growing up – of that summer of innocence, when the world was simpler, and even our problems seemed sweeter.
