Karma by Cathy Ostlere

This book is just amazing in my own eyes! Is a complete story, as described by the author in the beginning is "a novel in a verse". This story takes place in the 80's to be more precise in 1984. We meet Maya who is traveling from Canada to New Delhi, India, with her father and their goal is to bring her mother to rest in her homeland. Bapu is traveling with Maya, Bapu, Maya's father.
The very same day when they arrive to India, prime minister Indira Gadhni is murder, all of the sudden a chaos is created all over the city. Maya and her father are now trapped in this mess, and to make matters worse, Maya can not seem to find her father. With the help of a good friend, Sandeep, Maya tries to stay alive and make it home.

This story is all about suspense, adventure and also a mix of feelings sandness, at the end happiness surronds the end.
