An utterly irresistible first novel: The story of two sisters, the yearning to disappear into another country, and the powerful desire to return to the known world.

Linno is a gifted artist, despite a childhood accident that has left her badly maimed, and Anju is one of Kerala's most promising students.

Both girls dream of coming to the United States, but it is Anju who wins a scholarship to a prestigious school in New York.

She seizes it, even though it means lying and betraying her sister.

When her lie is discovered, Anju disappears. Back in Kerala, Linno is undergoing a transformation of her own.

But when she learns of Anju's disappearance, Linno strikes out farther still, with a scheme to procure a visa so that she can come to America to look for her sister and save them both.From the Trade Paperback edition.
