Summary of the Book

Bubble Wrap is the story of a 12-year-old, Krishna Singh who has been married off to Shyam Singh of Rokhagadh, Rajasthan. The night before the wedding, Krishna's grandmother secretly presents her with a box full of exquisite jewelry and tells her to sell it in times of misfortune. Krishna is accompanied by Gudiya, the young widow of her cousin, to Rokhagadh. Krishna soon realizes that her new home is a far cry from the loving one she left behind. Her in-laws are every conservative and do not allow her to go to school, instead they arranged for a female tutor, who comes home to teach her. An inquisitive father-in-law, a sinister mother-in-law and a husband away at a residential school clearly show Krishna what is a woman's place in this family. Due to an unfortunate incident, Krishna and Gudiya get caught up in a series of events which will change their lives forever. Together they deal with all the obstacles and troubles and learn a lot about the world they live in. Bubble Wrap is an inspiring story of their fight for survival in a male-dominated society.
