'Blazingly brilliant' CELESTE NG

Summary

Sixteen-year-old Sashi wants to become a doctor. But over the next decade, as a vicious civil war subsumes Sri Lanka, her dream takes her on a different path as she watches those around her, including her four beloved brothers and their best friend, get swept up in violent political ideologies and their consequences. Sashi tries to continue in her education despite the danger enveloping her and her brothers, making new bonds at university and abroad, but she must ask herself: is it possible for anyone to move through life without doing harm? And, when the wrong person asks you to do the right thing, would you do it?
