Product description

From the Publisher

No Ordinary Thursday grabs you from the first page. As the story opens, the lives of Lena and her children, Maya and Sameer, change in an instant. What follows is a compelling drama offering moving observations about the bonds of family.

Lena’s relationships with Maya and Sameer have been strained for years. But when Maya gets engaged to a much younger man—causing a stir in their Bay Area Indian American community—on the same day Sameer’s longtime addiction leads to an accident with shattering outcomes, those fractures deepen. In a matter of hours, Lena finds her children slipping even further away and her carefully constructed world crumbling. As the three of them reel from the turns their lives have taken, they have no choice but to confront the secrets and misconceptions that have torn them apart—and they must decide whether the promise of the future is enough to overcome the past.

Family is never easy, and
No Ordinary Thursday captures those complexities with unflinching honesty. This story is emotionally charged, and it deals with difficult topics. Though tragic at times, it’s just as often hopeful. I found myself so invested in Lena, Maya, and Sameer, it was impossible not to embrace them and root for them to overcome the challenges that arise—something they can only do together, as one. In them, we see the bonds of family are fragile but unbreakable.

—Chris Werner, Editor
