Nisha wonders if, because of the pain she caused Ma in the last eight years, she is somehow responsible for the suicide. The note Ma has left for her offers no explanation only pleas to – among other things – fall in love, take care of father, forgive her, and, ironically, be brave. Upon investigation, Nisha discovers that Ma had lost the baby she was carrying.

Knowing how desperately Ma wanted the baby, Nisha concludes that the grief must be what pushed Ma to the extreme. The assumption doesn’t quell Nisha’s guilt. If anything, it reinforces it. To unburden her conscience, Nisha sets out to fulfill Ma’s last wishes. But the constant clashes with her insensitive and authoritarian father make her want to get away from him instead of take care of him. She falls in love with the neighborhood boy, Sameer, but, afraid as she is of losing everyone she loves, she has a hard time staying in love. The heartache she experiences after a falling-out with Sameer makes her want to follow in her mother’s footsteps.

Getting a sense of Ma’s desperation, Nisha thinks she is ready to forgive her mother, but realizes later that she is not. To resolve her hurt, insecurity, and anger, Nisha must be brave enough to confront a painful incident from eight years ago that’s at the heart of her guilt – her infant sister, Kairi’s death.

Set in the holy city of Varanasi, India, the story is about a troubled teen’s extraordinary journey through grief. This quietly poignant, literary novel with its universal theme – love and forgiveness heal – has appeal for teens as well as adults, especially those interested in multicultural/Indian literature.
