One Hundred Shades of White Summary


A magical mixture of East meets West, and mothers in conflict with daughters - for anyone who enjoyed `Bend it like Beckham' but prefers food to football... There's East. There's West. And then there's Maya... Maya, her mother Nalini, and her brother Satchin have left a carefree life in India to come to England. But when Maya's father disappears, leaving only deceit and debt behind, they are left to fend for themselves in a strange, damp land. Maya, though, doesn't know of her father's betrayal. Nalini, determined to preserve her children's pride, tells them that their father died in an accident and, as their struggle to make a life begins, whole realities are built on this lie. While Nalini cooks exotic pickles which enchant all who eat them, Maya begins to adapt to her new home - the unfamiliar food, the language, the music - and then to explore and make bold plans, plans that her mother does not understand. But even a white lie cannot remain hidden forever - and when the truth resurfaces, it changes everything...
