With a blurb that starts like this, Nidhie Sharma has surely got the readers hooked from the first glance itself.
Add to it the fact that it is a true story, one based on a real-life incident faced by the author as a teenager. The strength and determination visible in this story are the ones that leave you with goosebumps long after you have finished the book.
Nidhie Sharma, the author, is an inspiration in real life too. A writer-director based in Mumbai, her debut work ‘Dancing with the demons’, the first boxing fiction drama in India is notable and very well-known.
Bringing together her personal experiences of growing up in an Armed Forces environment and travelling across the world, she mixes it liberally with her love for adventure sports in this story. The result is an edge-of-the-seat, nail-biting adventure novel that you cannot put down without knowing what happened next.
