Books: What Maya Saw: A Tale of Shadows, Secrets, Clues by Shabnam Minwalla (Age: 12+ years)
15-year-old Maya, a brilliant student of Model Girls High School, spends most of her time with books or listening to her teachers. However, she wants to be less of a bookworm and more like her classmates. So, at the start of her summer vacation, she goes out and buys herself a stack of magazines that answer all her questions about make-up, body language, fashion and soulmates. She also buys a cleansing lotion, nail polish and junk food. By the time school reopens, Maya hopes to be part of the cool crowd instead of a geek. However, all her plans are tossed out of the window when she receives a letter from the prestigious St Paul’s College, inviting her to their summer school programme. Maya’s mother leaves no room for argument. On the very first day of summer school, Maya heads to the library. But as she is making her notes, she sees something bizarre and scary, she sees shadows and people and things she is not supposed to have seen. Does Maya get sucked into that world or does she find a way out? Read the book to find out. Published by Harper Collins and available on Amazon.in
