|Summary:|| We meet the Mishra family in Delhi, India in 1978 where Ajay and Birju play cricket in the streets waiting for the day when their plane tickets will arrive and they and their mother can fly across the world and join their father in America. Once there, Ajay and Birju enjoy their new, extraordinary life in New York. Then tragedy strikes, leaving one brother incapacitated and the other practically orphaned in this strange land. Ajay, the family's younger son, prays to a God he envisions as Superman, longing to find his place amid the ruins of his family's new life. This is the universal story of a boy torn between duty and his own survival. -- From book jacket.
