9781518634833: He Knew a Firefly

Six-year-old Akshara watches her mother die. At thirteen, she watches her best friend die. She's heartbroken, but their deaths don't surprise her. She has a secret - she can glimpse into the future of those she loves. But for her it's a curse and not a blessing; every life she touches is thrown into turmoil, friends abandon her, and she is overwhelmed by more guilt than she can bear. Then, one day, she sees her own unhappy fate. Does Akshara bring upon her loved ones the misfortunes they blame her for? Will Akshara be able to save herself after she has lost everyone she loved? Or will she lose her sanity like her mother did? A gripping, evocative and sometimes surreal page-turner, He Knew a Firefly follows Akshara as she tries to light the dark, unknown pathways for her loves ones, before being ultimately consumed by the flames herself.

About the Author:

A self-confessed nerd, feminist and lover of all things quirky, Smita is an award winning short story writer based out of Mumbai. Potent coffee and a good book makes her day. Planning for that one big, decadent trip to a new country, makes her year. She considers herself the sum total of all the places she has been to, like a Lego puzzle being set up, one journey at a time. Smita cares deeply for women's issues and her writing usually reflects strong, central female characters. She's also a fan of a genre she calls racy emotional thrillers, and her books display that predilection. She has a novel and a novella out in the reading world, with plenty more floating in the dark recesses where they came from. Smita has a degree in engineering and Masters in Business Administration and currently works as a consultant.
