From Aravind Adiga, the bestselling, Booker Prize-winning author of The White Tiger, a ?ferociously brilliant? (Slate) novel about two brothers in a Mumbai slum who are raised by their crazy, obsessive father to be star cricket players that ?offers the sound of a serious and nervy writer working at the top of his form? (The New York Times). Manjunath Kumar is fourteen and living in a slum in Mumbai. He knows he is good at cricket?if not as good as his older brother, Radha. He knows that he fears and resents his domineering and cricket-obsessed father, admires his brilliantly talented sibling, and is fascinated by curious scientific facts and the world of CSI. But there are many things, about himself and about the world, that he doesn?t know. Sometimes it even seems as though everyone has a clear idea of who Manju should be, except Manju himself. When Manju meets Radha?s great rival, a mysterious Muslim boy privileged and confident in all the ways Manju is not, everything in Manju?s world begins to change, and he is faced by decisions that will challenge his sense of self and of the world around him.
