What if someone told you that no matter what, no matter when, no matter where, you are not alone? That whatever you do, think, or say, someone is right there beside you, seeing and hearing it all? What if they could send you help at any time of the day? What if they could put obstacles in your way? A long time ago, in India, a young girl discovered this incredible truth and her life changed forever.
Shiv Nagar, Himalayas, many hundreds of years ago. Like every little girl her age, Asha has big dreams. Unlike every little girl her age, she lives in an isolated village, banked on all sides by the highest Himalayan mountain peaks. In this remote village that no one ever leaves and that no one ever comes to, she holds on to her dreams as best she can, despite a father who’s exasperated by her daughter’s wild imagination, despite the teasing of other children in the village and, above all, despite Nirriti, an old crone who claims to speak to the gods and who’s been reminding her of all the dangers prowling outside the village’s borders since before Asha can even remember. Thankfully, Asha has her mother, Sneha, to listen to her, as well as the memories of her late beloved grandma, who encouraged her to always and only listen to her heart. One day, when Sneha falls critically ill, Asha fears that not only will she lose her mother, but also end up all alone in the world, with no one left to listen to her, to guide her or to believe in her dreams. That’s when she starts having very strange visions...
A young girl’s journey of discovery through India, to unveil the mysterious powers that regulate the mind and the heart. An illustrated novel for young and old alike, Asha and the Spiritz is a quest navigating through faith and doubt, luck and destiny, reincarnation and other infinite possibilities. A fantastic tale of hope, courage and karma.

PS. Here is my daughter's review verbatim:
"Reading the book was amazing. I love, love, love, love this book. If you have a child, you might want to read it to them too. The book was about hope and love and about a girl named Asha having her mother get sick and how Asha and her friends Satya and Abhi save her mother. Those three characters all are very brave in their journey to the sea. The journey was very hard. "
Honestly one of the best books I have read lately - refreshingly original and beautifully told. One of our favs.
