Priyanka Das has so many unanswered questions: Why did her mother abandon her home in India years ago? What was it like there? And most importantly, who is her father, and why did her mom leave him behind? But Pri’s mom avoids these questions—the topic of India is permanently closed.

For Pri, her mother’s homeland can only exist in her imagination. That is, until she find a mysterious pashmina tucked away in a forgotten suitcase. When she wraps herself in it, she is transported to a place more vivid and colorful than any guidebook or Bollywood film. But is this the real India? And what is that shadow lurking in the background? To learn the truth, Pri must travel farther than she’s ever dared and find the family she never knew.

In this heartwarming graphic novel debut, Nidhi Chanani weaves a tale about the hardship and self-discovery that is born from juggling two cultures and two worlds.

    Author Nidhi Chanani, was born in India, and raised in Southern California. This
    gorgeously Illustrated graphic novel had to be – must have been – somewhat inspired by her own memories ( at least at one point in her developmental growing years), a search for her own cultural identity.

    Her artwork is so stunning ( first black and white – then moves into incredible colorful colors) – that I actually just flipped through this lovely 5 by 7 size silky paper book looking at the drawings – before settl

    Her artwork is so stunning ( first black and white – then moves into incredible colorful colors) – that I actually just flipped through this lovely 5 by 7 size silky paper book looking at the drawings – before settling in and reading the entire story.

    At the start of this story Pashmina, in High School, is behind the car driving with her mother sitting right next to her. Mom is not the least bit relax….saying things like,
    “In India they don’t allow girls to drive”…. and I didn’t learn until I was 20, two years after coming to this country”.

    Mom is a little stifling and definitely overprotective. Pri’s mother has never told her why she left India and came to United States. She wants to know what India’s like and she also wants to know who her father is who her mother left in India.

    After Pri finds a mysterious chest that contains a magical scarf – and after winning prize money for a cartoon contest that she had entered, she buys a plane ticket and leaves for India…. and that’s when the illustrations get very colorful.
    I guess I ‘can’ understand that Pri didn’t see the United States – Los Angeles- to be anywhere near colorful as India. —lol —and who knows who was President at the time.
    Shame on me – I could resist!

    Pri is a feisty ‘modern girl’…..ha, seems I mentioned being a modern girl myself in a review just a few days ago.

    Pri also has a great imagination.

    Great graphic- moving – insightful – fantastical- and FUNNY!

    Age range is targeted 10-14….but shhhhhh most adults will adore “Pashmina”, too!

    A graphic novel with an Indian American teenager who wants to know more about her country, family and culture? The day I say no to diverse stories will never, ever come.

    Priyanka lives in the US with her mom who left India when she was her age. Priyanka knows little about India, and when her mom does tell her about the life girls live there and how they have less choices than in the US, Priyanka thinks she’s exaggerating.

    Priyanka lives in the US with her mom who left India when she was her age. Priyanka knows little about India, and when her mom does tell her about the life girls live there and how they have less choices than in the US, Priyanka thinks she’s exaggerating.

    Ms. Chanani created a realistic teenage heroine other teenagers will understand well and hopefully be able to connect with. I enjoyed reading about her adventures and think her character development deserves recognition. Definitely.

    But I must say Priyanka’s worst weakness is that she keeps most of her feelings inside. Like the time her teacher asked her to enter her comic in a competition, she immediately declined because she doubted herself, but she never really explained her refusal. Or when she was sad about her uncle having a baby. I understood she was scared they would spend less time together, and she wouldn’t have a father figure anymore, but she never talked about her feelings to anyone or even to herself.

    I came out to that conclusion because I’ve read many YA stories before, and I’ve began to read people well… Plus I myself have no father, so there’s no way I would have missed that. But the author needed to make it clearer. And how the hell did no one notice Priyanka’s sadness at the mention of the baby? They’re supposed to be her family. It’s really unrealistic no one stopped to look at her miserable expression and ask what is wrong.

    The best parts were when the setting switched from US to India and we started to visually experience it. The illustrations are very pretty. I can totally imagine this becoming an animated film or TV series for kids. It should have been longer I believe, so we could see more of India. It’s the story that makes me want more though, so it succeeded in making me curious about life in India, which was one of the author’s goals I’m sure. Nicely done. Quite an original concept too.

    This was a beautifully illustrated middle grade graphic novel! I loved learning about Indian culture, new words in Hindi, and the magical realism. That being said, I felt like the actual story was a bit weak and disjointed. Wasn’t a waste of time, but felt like the plot could have been better executed, as well as the characters.
