The summer holidays have begun, and Swapnalok Society is going to change forever.
Ten-year-old Chitrangana, with her innocent eyes and precocious lies, is the despair of her gang of friends at Swapnalok Society in downtown Mumbai. All she wants is to grow her hair, have her mother bake her angel cake, and become a bathroom decorator of repute. But deep down, what she really wants is to find her father.
Meanwhile, there is not a dull moment as the varied, often eccentric residents of Swapnalok Society go about their lives. Underwear Uncle and Aunty are on their way out, Sita Maami has developed a formula for cola water that the cola company wants to buy from her, there’s a dog kidnapper on the loose and Varun Vadola, a charming young bachelor, has moved in next door to Chitrangana. And when Ammama, her batty grandmother, lands up from the village, life becomes even more exciting. Then, on her birthday, Chitrangana’s sister gifts her Sapna, a doll that looks just like her and speaks words only Chitrangana can hear. Armed with Sapna, Chitrangana decides to take to the mean streets of Mumbai to look for her father, who will surely set everything right in their lives. Does Chitrangana finally find her father? And does she find the answers she is looking for?
The first book in an exciting new series from Puffin, The Summer of Cool is a hip, funny story about friends, family and finding true love.
