summer is not shaping up to be a good one. Maya is being forced to
go with her mother to India to sell her grandfather's house. Not
that Maya doesn't like visiting India. It's just that she and her
mother haven't been getting along very well since her parents' divorce.
And the thought of spending the whole summer without her friends doesn't
help her mood. When they arrive in India, Maya is surrounded by family
and friends and things are not as bad as she imagined. Until she
starts remembering what her life was like before the divorce. Could
she be the cause of it? Could it go back to when she was born?
To the time when her grandparents argured about naming her Maya?
