A family trip to India turns into a grand adventure in this contemporary novel about the Great Partition, from the award-winning author of Saving Kabul Corner and Shooting Kabul .

A map, two train tickets, and a mission. These are things twelve-year-old Maya and her big sister Zara have when they set off on their own from Delhi to their grandmother's childhood home of Aminpur, a small town in Northern India. Their goal is to find a chest of family treasures that their grandmother's family left behind when they fled from India to Pakistan during the Great Partition. But soon the sisters become separated, and Maya is alone. Determined to find her grandmother's lost chest, she continues her trip, enlisting help on the way from an orphan boy named Jai.

Maya's grand adventure through India is as thrilling as it is warm: a journey through her family's history becomes a real coming-of-age quest.

After visiting India, I read this book and found that it quite vividly describes the character and chaos of Delhi and Agra, as well as helps one understand a bit of the culture and history. Recommended!
