Two new novels to look for:
Mitali Perkins announces the June release of her forthcoming teen novel, First Daughter: Extreme American Makeover, from Dutton. About a Pakistani-American girl whose dad is a Presidential wannabe.
At the end of the nineteenth century, a caravan of traders sets off from the high hills of Kumaon, India, for Tibet. When young Debu's father doesn't return, he travels in search him. That's the premise of Deepa Agarwal's new middle-grade novel from Penguin India, Caravan to Tibet.
I'll be looking for both of these.
