Lucky Boy: Shanti Sekaran

A sweeping, riveting novel that takes on multiple issues from infertility, to adoption, to undocumented immigrants, to economic entitlement and entrenched racism. Sekaran’s writing style varies with each character’s voice but ultimately weaves a gripping tale of heart wrenching choices in contemporary America.  Set in California, the novel focuses on new mother Soli who is in the country without proper documentation, wanna-be mother Kavya whose parents immigrated to the U.S from India, and one small child who is desperately loved.
