SWIMMING IN THE MONSOON SEA
Shyam Selvadurai's new novel SWIMMING IN THE MONSOON SEA explores cultural differences experienced by a Sri Lankan teenager who feels like an outsider, partially because he is orphaned and partially because he is worried about belonging at an all boys' school. His is a fresh approach to the coming of age novel tradition for YA readers.
