After the huge success of her first novel The Cambridge Curry Club, our author Saumya Balsari, releases her eagerly awaited second novel next week. Summer of Blue is a story set among the spires of Cambridge, sunny Mumbai and the shadows of war-torn Afghanistan and is an off-beat narrative of love, loss and longing â€“ a story of teenage angst and the pressures of modern life.
Millyâ€™s brother is missing and presumed dead in Afghanistan, but she refuses to give up faith, and believes he is still alive. When she turns seventeen in the summer, she begins to write a journal and makes three wishes, hoping they come true by her eighteenth birthday: get her brother Neel safely home, get into Cambridge University and get a boyfriend. But life is anything but predictable.
