Review: Chloe has moved from Boston to New Delhi, India, and she feels like an outcast. The new girl in her Indian school and, of course, the only one with blonde hair, she is different and has no friends. While she desperately wants "in" with Anvi, the popular, high-caste girl at school, she finds herself more inclined to friendship with another new girl from the poverty-stricken lower caste of Indian society. Impacts of the different climate and Chloe's perspective on the culture and food grant young readers a glimpse of human nature played out in a very different world.
