Description - Gifted by Nikita Lalwani

On a trip to India at the age of eight, Rumi Vasi's mathematical powers acquired almost supernatural significance. When she returned home to Cardiff her destiny was sealed- she was now, and would forever be, the town's 'maths prodigy'. But by the age of fourteen, after years of her father's determined tutoring, Rumi finds that numbers are beginning to lose their innocence. And, as her longing for love and her parents' will to succeed deepen, so too does the heartrending rift between them. In a voice that is by turns very funny and fiercely tender, Nikita Lalwani brings us a captivating story of high aspirations and deep desires, and of the sometime loneliness of childhood.
