Summary
"Follows the lives of [NPR correspondent] Aarti, the precocious scholarship kid at one of Manhattan's most elite prep schools, and her dad, the shopkeeper who mistakenly sells watches and calculators to the notorious Cali drug cartel. Together, the two represent the extremes that coexist in our country--even within a single family--and a truth about immigrants that gets lost in the headlines. It isn't a matter of good or evil--it's complicated"--Dust jacket flap
Summary
