Priyanka, like many children of immigrants, lives between two worlds – one Indian, one American. When she finds a pashmina with seemingly magical powers, she can travel to India, into other possible lives, and maybe even learn about the missing pieces of her past.
What’s fun about this book is the play between the black and white pages and those in color, the linked stories, all of the small ways we see Privanka live with and apart from others, the way her life connects to so many others. And really, that could be all of us in one way or another, right?
