Middle School is the worst period in a child's life. He or she has to undergo bullying, and an often painful transition from childhood to young adulthood. It is also a period most neglected at home and in school, for the child grows rebellious as he feels he is misunderstood and unjustly dealt with. Parents feel helpless to interfere. Imagine what then can be the plight of twins?
The book deals with parenting, the agony of middle school, the individuality of each child, the jealousy, resentment and fear of change faced by both children and teachers, each at their level. It deals with violence, resentment, bullying, and defiance in children. It explores new methods to get the child on the right path by introducing him to those less fortunate than himself. It explores a synthesis in learning and new and fun methods of teaching. And it deals with the inherent goodness in children and in man. It's a family story, which shows that love, forgiveness and understanding in family life will help bring stability to a child's life.
One of the hardest things for any author to acquire is a distinctive voice, but Raman and Sunny: Middle School Blues puts Fiza Pathan in the category of those who have achieved it. A powerful, charming and above all honest read, it’s not one of those novels that can be reduced to naive labels. With a pitch-perfect sense of character, this is a novel that’s bursting with life, energy, fears, and frustrations, one that neatly sidesteps trite and formulaic plotting and dives into the nub of Pathans overarching theme. Pathan respects the idiosyncrasies of her characters, suggesting as much as she tells, and encouraging us to identify with multiple points of view. In this respect it’s utterly convincing, with emotionally genuine gravitas, as we come to know Raman and Sunny. Great writing should pull readers through a portal to another life and this is exactly what Pathan does and in doing so reminds us, that irrespective of cultural identity, there are periods in life that aren’t so easily reconciled.
Another exceptional read from Fiza Pathan, Raman and Sunny: Middle School Blues is recommended without reservation.
