Tamarind & The Star of Ishta

Tamarind & The Star of Ishta


Tamarind and the Star of Ishta is about a girl called Tamarind whose mum died soon after she was born. When she goes to India to spend a week with her Mums family, she asks a lot of questions about her mum, but gets no answers.

Soon Tamarind’s curiosity gets the better of her and she goes exploring. She finds some of her mom’s belongings and meets a strange girl who calls herself Ishta. I would rate this book four and a half stars as it is full of mystery. However, I was a bit confused with all of the characters.

My favourite character is probably Arjan as he is very friendly and cheerful. I would recommend this book to all Mystery lovers.
