This story will both break your heart and fill you with hope. Viji (our narrator) and her mentally challenged sister Ruku are in an abusive home. When their appa turns on them, Viji packs up for both of them and they take a bus to the city. Throughout the book, Viji is writing recounting their story for Ruku. They are fortunate to befriend two homeless boys about their age and find temporary shelter and find ways to make money for food. They manage on their own until Ruku gets to sick for them to help her on their own. A faith in God is shown as a lifeline by many characters in this book although Viji finds herself unable to trust in a Heavenly Father when her earthly father was such a disappointment. Overall an uplifting and enlightening story which will remind many of the blessings they have in their lives.
