Lucky Boy: A Novel by Sekaran Shanthi DetailsCheck it in Amazon
An Amazon Best Book of January 2017: Lucky Boy presents two very different American stories, tied together by the fate of a child. When Soli Castro-Valdez leaves her small Mexican village for the United States, she endures the difficult journey but arrives pregnant and undocumented. Meanwhile, Kavya Reddy, whose parents immigrated to the US from India, is living a more peaceful life with her dot.com-employed husband in Berkeley. Unable to have a child, Kavya becomes a foster parent—and when Soli winds up in immigrant detention, her son Ignacio winds up with Kavya. But the story has just begun.
Author Shanthi Sekaran has written a novel that makes the reader think and feel while avoiding being didactic. Full of three-dimensional characters, the book is colorful and entertaining to the end. You’ll laugh and you’ll cry. You’ll question whether you should pick sides. And if you’re like me, you’ll be glad you picked up this penetrating novel. –Chris Schluep, The Amazon Book Review
