Edition: First printing, a trade paperback, issued simultaneously with hardcover.

New York: First Second / Roaring Brook Press, (2017). SIGNED first edition - Graphic novel - Priyanka Das has so many unanswered questions: Why did her mother abandon her home in India years ago? What was it like there? And most importantly, who is her father, and why did her mum leave him behind? But Pri's mom avoids these questions - the topic of India is permanently closed. For Pri, her mother's homeland can only exist in her imagination. That is, until she finds a mysterious pashmina tucked away in a forgotten suitcase. When she wraps herself in it, she is transported to a place more vivid and colourful than any guidebook or Bollywood film. But is this the real India? And what is that shadow lurking in the background?" Scenes set in her ordinary life as a high school student are in black and white, while those transporting her to India are in full color. SIGNED on the half title page. 165 pp plus glossary. ISBN: 978-1626720879.
