This book is not what I was expecting. Instead of detailing the author's struggles and adventures in India, only about a quarter of the book is set in New Delhi (the rest is in the U.S.). This first bit is comprised of stories of drug abuse with other privileged white kids, sadly nothing about experiencing Indian culture. And the Description of being a "stranded" teenager in India is misleading. The author was neglected and ignored, neither abandoned nor orphaned! (Not that I wish the latter on anyone.) Basically a latch-key kid in a foreign country. What the book does have is half-baked philosophical ideas and plenty of mommy-daddy resentment. ( )
