‘Have you ever made a mistake, Alia?’
Noor’s face floats in front of my eyes. I don’t say anything.
‘Because I’m going to find every mistake you’ve ever made and I am going to use it. We all have skeletons in our closet. Keep this up and I’m going to drag yours out for all the world to see.’
Three Indian girls. One horrific scandal. And fifteen years later, secrets that refuse to stay buried…
Fifteen years ago, three sixteen-year-old girls meet at Wescott, an exclusive private school in India. Two, Sabah and Noor, are the most popular girls in their year. One, Alia, is a new arrival from England, who feels her happiness depends on their acceptance.
Before she knows it, Sabah and Noor’s intoxicating world of privilege and intimacy opens up to Alia and, for the first time, after years of neglect from her parents, she feels she is exactly where, and with whom, she belongs.
But with intimacy comes jealousy, and with privilege, resentment, and Alia finds that it only takes one night for her bright new world to shatter around her.
Now Alia, a cabinet minister in the Indian government, is about to find her secrets have no intention of staying buried . . .
I really enjoyed can you see me now by Trisha Sakhlecha , I found it intriguing and it had my attention from the very start.
I really enjoyed how it went from past to present in the story, I really enjoyed the authors writing style and found it easy to follow between the different characters.
The character development and the plot was so good and kept me guessing till the very end , every time I though I was close to figuring this book out I found out I was wrong. I found it gripping from the very start, they are many twists and suspicions that keep you guessing and the build up was worth it.
This was my first book reading from this author and I can’t wait to see what she brings out next.
