    OMGOSH

    I loved this book. whwen i read the writing i was so sucked in that I could not get out! The writing was spectacular and inexplicable. The charecters were so well written, and their personalities expressed who they are and for the most part they do not change. I love the plot where there are the stairs that the women do not climb, and how they are seperated exept for at meal time. I am so glad that women in most countries have rights just like I do and that I love in a period where women are celbrated. I think that my favorite charecter was Raman becayuse he was kinda funny when he let something slip like womens rights were bad, and then she would ask him a question and then he would stutter. perfecto example of real humans. I also like the way we found out that periamma and periappa are human too.

    An interesting new point of view on World War II

    Great book! This novel takes place in India during World War II. I love this book because I have never thought about the impact that World War II had on India. Also explored are the nonviolent protests in India, traditional Indian culture, racism, the effects of imperialism and colonization, women's rights, and of course a little romance (not explicit, just clean and cute). Definitely worth reading.

    Good Book

    This is a great book about girls becoming leaders. Tragic and heart-warming at the same time. I would reccomend this book to ages 10-15.
