Finalist for the 2015 Epigram Books Fiction Prize
The Straits Times Book Of The Month (August 2016)
Pin must not become like her mother, but nobody will tell her why. She seeks clues in Ma’s cooking when she’s not fighting other battles—being a bursary girl at an elite school and facing racial taunts from the bus uncle. Then her meddlesome grandmother moves in, installing a portrait of a watchful Sikh guru and a new set of house rules. Old secrets begin to surface but can Pin handle learning the truth?
A fabulous journey of a mother and daughter
This book was great. The descriptions made me feel as if I was really in Singapore, smelling and eating everything the author had the protagonist Pin describe.
I love how true it stays to Punjabi culture and Singapore. A great story.
