Pashmina by Nidhi Chanani

Priyanka’s mother refuses to discuss why she left India at 18…. A pashmina shawl stowed in an old suitcase sends Pri on “journeys” to India when she puts it on, and a cry to [the goddess] Shakti for help results in a phone call from an aunt she’s never met, inviting her to her mother’s home country. The pashmina goes with her, and as aunt and niece bond, Priyanka learns of her mother’s secret past and the power of the shawl, which gives the woman who wears it a vision of how to take the next step in life… The graphic-novel format keeps the story light…sorting the players’ many journeys through actual and imaginary spaces with shifts in background color. A fantasy with humor and substance, this is a book for girls seeking empowerment and agency. Grades 4–8.Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
