Maya Mukherjee doesn’t fit in. She was born in India and her parents moved to Canada when she was a baby. Now it’s the 1970s, and she’s a middle schooler in Manitoba, land of moose and snow. She wants to run on the tundra beneath the Northern Lights, make igloos or snow-angels, see John Travolta, and ride elephants through the Bengal jungle the way her great-grandfather did. Then her gorgeous cousin Pinky comes from India for a visit, bringing a statue of the god Ganesh, the Remover of Obstacles. Maya asks Ganesh to remove all obstacles to her dreams. Like most wishes, it backfires in hilarious and painful ways. Maya must journey across continents to restore the truth and find out who she is.

Thirteen-year-old Maya was born in India and has grown up in Canada. She loves Manitoba, land of ice and snow, but sometimes she's not sure just where she belongs. The arrival of her glamorous cousin Pinky on a visit from India leads Maya to ask the Hindu god Ganesh, the Remover of Obstacles, to change her life.

Anjali Banerjee deftly weaves her story using bright threads from different worlds, and her plot follows unexpected patterns. Maya Running offers a unique perspective on universal longings, for Maya's rediscovery and embrace of her own special culture and her family will ring true for young readers whatever their situation.

Enjoy this refreshing and wonderfully readable novel by a bright new talent.
