"A superb novel about grief, friendship, and mental illness, mixing in graphic-novel elements and themes from Hindu mythology." -- Publishers Weekly, Starred

Corey, Holly, and Savitri are closer than family until a random act of violence shatters their world. A gunman shoots at their car, leaving Corey dead, Holly in a coma, and Savitri the sole witness to the crime.

When Holly wakes up, she is changed--determined to hunt down Corey's killer, whatever the cost. Savitri fears that Holly is running wild, losing her grip on reality. Friends should stand by each other in times of crisis. But can you hold on too tight? Too long?

Swati Avasthi delivers a riveting novel that will appeal to fans of Laini Taylor and Laurie Halse Anderson.

"Haunting, mesmerizing and intense." -- Kirkus Reviews, Starred

The format reminded me of the book "Malice" by Chris Wooding, although the two are about different subjects, they both use a combination of comic panels and blocks of text to tell the story.
