Sample Book Insights:

#1 I had a map of India on my bedroom wall when I was growing up. I didn’t know where Calcutta was, but I knew that the immense V of the Indian subcontinent was a place teeming with cities and towns, with deserts and mountains, rivers and forests.

#2 I was very young when I got lost, and I had to learn English quickly. I spoke very little about my past in India, but I remembered it clearly. It was always present in my mind, and I couldn’t let it go.

#3 I was able to transition to life in another country and culture fairly easily, since I’d been so safe and secure in Australia. I didn’t dwell on the past, and instead focused on the present.

#4 I opened up about my life in India, and I found myself telling my story to a teacher I liked at school. She wrote notes, and when I returned to school, I found that my classmates were very interested in my story.
