A brilliant UK and Ireland children and young adults’ booklist
Sweetness and Light
Location(s): Tamil Nadu, Sydney
Connor, an Australian expat with a brutal past, spends his time running low-stakes scams on tourists in a sleepy beachside town. Sasha, an American in search of spiritual guidance, heads to an isolated ashram in the hope of mending a broken heart.
When one of Connor’s grifts goes horribly wrong, it sets in motion a chain of events that brings the two lost souls together — and as they try to navigate a world of gangsters, gurus and secret agendas, they begin to realise that within the ashram’s utopian community, something is deeply, deeply wrong . . .
