magic hereSet in a basti or Indian slum where children have vanished and the police are disinclined to help the novel When Red Cried Wolf follows 9 year old Jai and hisriends as they play detective to try and solve the case It s an incredible window on daily life in such a place the precarity of knowing the authorities could bulldoze your home at any moment but also the strong amily and community bonds that orm there The sights sounds and smells of the basti are vividly evoked as Jai investigate and this immersive depiction is really of the basti are vividly evoked as Jai investigate and this immersive depiction is really balanced to be neither sensationalised nor sugar coatedThe child characters are so endearing and na ve that I was a little unprepared or how dark this novel becomes by the end I ve since learned that the story is based on real events The heart wrenching conclusion really brings home some hard truths about how poverty renders people invisible and the way vulnerable communities are so often Song of the Forest failed by the systems meant to protect them First andoremost a large thank you to NetGalley Deepa Anappara and Penguin Random House Canada or providing me with a copy of this publication which allows me to provide you with an unbiased reviewDelving into to the darker side of life in India Deepa Anappara presents readers with this most impactful mystery With close to two hundred children disappearing off Indian streets daily this story about a missing child leaves the reader eeling a little less than comfortable Jai may only be nine years old but he seems to know just how life ought to be When a boy goes missing in his school Jai works with some of his A Constellation of Vital Phenomena friends to locate the young boy Well versed on police proceduralsrom his time watching television Jai is sure hat he can lead a brigade just like on the screen He ll come across a great deal o poverty with people who will do and sell anything or their next meal and travel late into the night to the Sextasy: Master the Timeless Techniques of Tantra, Tao, and the Kama Sutra to Take Lovemaking to New Heights far reaches of the 28 The strength of this novel is the vivid setting of the Indian basti slum and surrounding city that 9 year old Jai navigates It is written as a light hearted capereaturing Jai imitating a TV detective to Still Life with Chickens find a missingriend Until children go missing and it is clear that there is a serious problem it Still Life with Chickens: Starting Over in a House by the Sea feels like a middle grade novel I ended up skimming the 2nd half I m not sure who the intended audience is but it isn t meThank you to Random Houseor the ARC I really enjoyed the atmosphere created The environment reveals a distinct separation of classes and the varied lives according to social status and monetary value Police negligence religious violence and educational values are exposed through this Paradox Bound fictional tale set in India The language was great and I enjoyed the story being told through the eyes of nine year old Jai The man scratches at hiseathery beard Kids around here disappear all the time he says One day they ll have too much glue and decide to try their luck somewhere else Another day they ll get hit by a rubbish truck and end up in a hospital Some other morning they ll be picked up by the police and sent to a juvenile home We don t make a uss about anybody vanishing The story itself became repetitive After one child disappeared Jai and Pari investigated and played detective and I was into it However then the same thing just kept happening Another would disappear Jai and Pari would investigate turn up empty handed and go home then another disappear etc So the progress wasn t as engaging as I would have preferred For me the most powerful chapters were This Story Will Save Your Life which were mostly stories of the djinns and other beliefs regarding wandering children My avorite scene was when Jai and Pari went to the railway station Because of the title and blurb I have to admit that I thought a big portion of this novel would take place around the railway However there was only one big scene there in the beginning I wasn t too pleased with the ending but I respect the underlying messages delivered to the reader through that conclusionI think the themes embedded in this story are significantly valuable However the progression of the story was uniform Overall I liked the story because of the important leitmotifs Thank you to NetGalley and Random House
