Amid the ups and downs, Nitya — being an inquisitive child — makes a discovery that gives her ‘seemingly desolate’ life a purpose.
As the plot progresses, she wants her sister to be her confidante and it’s up to Neha whether she would help Nitya in her endeavours or cut short her dreams.
Throughout the novel, the language remains simple and is supported well with illustrations.
The love-hate relationship between siblings, the complex world of a child and her longing for a pet are some of the themes evident in this interesting read.
"Thankfully, my school board (CBSE) does not give me board exam stress, so I could write the book ... there were a lot of starts and stops and blocks, but I’m glad it all worked out in the end," says Vashisht.
