Back of the Book

Twelve year old Avani is a happy go Lucky adventurous girl, who loves to play with her friends Tavishi, Delshad and Ambar. The wedding of the Village Elder’s daughter Ketika brings fresh excitement into their lives.

However, something sinister is afoot, as Avani realizes when she overhears a mysterious conversation between two men. Other incidents, like a bizarre robbery and a fare at the grain storeroom, add to the tension.

Do these unconnected events point to a bigger plan? How is the monk from far-off China linked to all this? Will Avani and her friend’s quick thinking unmask this plan, and save the honour of Bagasra village and Harrappa?
