not always easy to be the only brown in a sea of white. Maya is the
only East Indian in the small Manitoba town. She has friends and
does well in school but that doesn't keep her from being bullied by Brian.
But she does her best to ignore him. After all, Jamie has asked her
over to his house to look at his records. And her cousin Pinky is
coming to stay with them all the way from India. Things are just
going too good. And you know what that means. Things are going
to start going bad. Pinky and Jamie seem to be getting together.
And now it looks like the family will be moving to California. In
desperation, Maya begs the god Ganesh to change things to make them perfect.
Look out. Maya. Be very careful what you wish for.
