Djinn Patrol & Its Wonderful, Heartbreaking Kids

Djinn Patrol on the Purple Line

By: Deepa Anappara

Djinn Patrol is one of those books I picked up not at all knowing what I was going to get and absolutely loved despite the dark and tragic subject manner.

And I think it’s because Anappara brings the characters and the setting (but especially the characters) to life so well that I felt that I was there running the streets with the kids and I wanted to keep them all safe and fix everything that was wrong. Unfortunately there is a lot wrong for them.
