First edition. Rahul Kapoor is overwhelmed by beginning seventh grade in a small town in Indiana where he’s one of only a few Indian American students. Even more confusing are his budding feelings about some of the boys in his class. When his beloved grandfather, Bhai, gives him some well-meaning advice: Find one thing you’re really good at and become the BEST at it,  those four little words sear themselves into Rahul’s brain… But what if he isn’t the best at anything? A stunning debut from the well-known Broadway and television actor.
