Publisher's Summary

An evergreen classic about friendship and growing up by a master storyteller. 

This book catches up with our favorite Rusty as he plunges not just into the cold pools of Dehra but into an exciting new life, dipping his toes into adulthood. Winding his way back to the city with Kishen, Rusty discovers that his beloved room is no longer his!

By turns thrilling and nostalgic, this heartwarming sequel is Rusty is at his best as he navigates the tightrope between dreams and reality, all the time maintaining a glorious sense of hope. Striking, evocative, witty, and wise - this is an ode to youth and all its complexities, amidst the colors, sights, and smells of Bond's India.
