Excerpts from the Foreword
"It is a beautifully written book that goes deep into the psyche of a seemingly normal young girl who has a strange ability and a secret that will dictate her entire life.
Shalini doesn't rush with the narrative and is never in a hurry to show all her cards at once. She takes her time, allows the reader to meditate on the complexities of her characters, lets their inner turmoil and conflicts play out, and then gradually, like a very fine operatic piece, takes the narrative to its crescendo."
