Uprooted from a bustling city, the thirteen-year-old protagonist of The Small-town Sea is replanted in his father’s home town where he struggles to cope with his new life. He reluctantly makes friends with Bilal, a boy who lives in the orphanage run by the local mosque. Together, they embark on clandestine adventures while his ailing father-a writer whose last wish is to die listening to the sea he has grown up by-rediscovers people from his childhood. But his father’s death unsettles the boy’s life again, and he finds himself grappling with altogether unexpected challenges.

‘Reminds one of E.M. Forster’s A Passage to India, where the most ordinary becomes extraordinary through the writer’s craft’
