About this product
- DescriptionCassia can't wait for her first visit to India - Bollywood glamour, new friends to admire her uber-cool street-dance moves...But as she steps into real Indian life, NOTHING is as she expected...Cass is with her mum in Kerala, on a buying trip for their Fair Trade craft shop, and everything seems to be going wrong. There's Mum's new romance with call-me-V Mr Chaudury for a start, her own prickly stand-off with pretty, fashion-mad Priyanka, and the devastating news that her mum's business may be on the rocks. But then pop idol Jonny Gold arrives at the beach to promote his new song, Om Shanti Babe, sparking a mystery, new friendships and a race to save the mangrove swamps...Fizzing with energy, and laugh-out-loud funny, this is a roller-coaster journey of discovery, which also has an exciting environmental twist - all against the backdrop of beautiful Kerala.
- Author BiographyHELEN LIMON, winner of the 2011 Frances Lincoln Diverse Voices Award, started writing in 2000, when she set up a children's literature project in Newcastle which turned into a publishing venture for local authors and illustrators. She has just finished a PhD in Creative Writing at Newcastle University, and has also been running workshops for young volunteers in Shiremoor, artists in Russia and the Women's Institute in Wales. The inspiration for her debut novel, Om Shanti Babe, came from encounters with local people on a visit to Kerala in 2009, which made her conscious of the social and environmental themes that she subsequently wove into her book. Helen lives in rural Northumberland with her partner, a painter, and has one daughter, who is studying tailoring in London.
