Katina King is the reigning teen jiu-jitsu champion of Northern California, but she's having trouble fighting off the secrets in her past. Robin Thornton was adopted from an orphanage in Kolkata, India and is reluctant to take on his future. Since he knows nothing about his past, how is he supposed to figure out what comes next? Robin and Kat meet in the most unlikely of places-a summer service trip to India to work with survivors of human trafficking. As bonds blossom between the travel-mates, Robin and Kat discover the healing superpowers of friendship. At turns heart-wrenching, beautiful, and buoyant, Mitali Perkins's new novel explores the ripple effects of violence - across borders and generations-and how small acts of heroism can break the cycle.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Soneela Nankani delivers a powerful performance of two teens who are on a path to healing and self-discovery. Kat King has just survived an attempted rape, and now even her physical strength as a jujitsu champion isn't enough to make her feel safe around men. Nankani captures Kat's fear, anger, and desperate compassion as she works to help other survivors during a summer service trip to India. Robin Thornton is an average high schooler, except that he was adopted from Kolkata by his two white parents. The service trip is the perfect chance for him to discover who he is, and Nankani portrays his hope and awkwardness as he tries to merge his current life with the culture he left behind. Nankani effortlessly switches between American and Indian accents throughout this thoughtful audiobook. A.K.R. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
