So I got my first ever real, official, industry review from Kirkus Reviews. Aaaaaand, it wasn't bad! They mostly summarized the novel, then added this:
"This straightforward and ultimately reassuring novel reads like an older Sikh version of Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret and will fill a niche in any school or public library looking to beef up their YA multicultural fiction offerings."
I am a happy, happy gal.
