About The Book
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 . . .
If you like a book full of secrets and mystery, this one will not disappoint you, believe me!
How many times our parents have said to us that secrets can’t remain hidden forever? Believe me, this is so true… but when you are young you don’t ever think about the consequences of your acts, you simply want to be accepted and respected, sometimes if the things you have to do are driven by the ones surrounding you, acceptance is first, am I right?
This is a story from the past that will change the present’s life of an Indian minister, Alia, she did what she thought was needed to be part of the group, now, all the secrets will be revealed, is she ready for the consequences?
This is a very well written book, full of surprises and realistic situations, it has been quite easy to fall in love with this book, but it doesn’t mean that it was easy to accept some of the situations that are explained on the story. The situations are uncomfortable and dangerous, but this is what the book tries, to provoke the reader and make them wonder how many secrets are kept from the ones surrounding us. Also, it was a pleasure reading from a different country, India, but sadly the human problems are all the same, it doesn’t matter where they come from!
Ready for a really twisted and unexpected read, Can You See Me Now??
