I'll make my sisters squirm like well-salted earthworms. I won't sell. Even my jutti won’t sell. And if I die na, then even my ghost won't sell! The late Binodini Thakur had been very clear that she would never agree to sell her hissa in her Bauji's big old house on Hailey Road. And her daughter Bonu, is determined to honour her mother’s wishes. But what to do about her four pushy aunts who are insisting she sell? One is bald and stingy, one is jobless and man less, one needs the money to 'save the nation' and one is stepmother to Bonu’s childhood crush-brilliant young Bollywood director Samar Vir Singh, who promised BJ upon his deathbed that he would get the house sold, divide the money equally and end all the bickering within the family. The first word baby Bonu ever spoke was 'Balls' and indeed, she is ballsy, bullshit-intolerant, brave and beautiful. But is she strong enough to weather emotional blackmail by the spade full? Not to mention shady builders, wily politicians, spies, lies and the knee-buckling hotness of Samar’s intense eyes? Sharply observed and pulse-quickening romantic, this is Anuja Chauhan writing at her sparkling best!
