Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Harpreet Singh loves his colors-but when his family moves to a new city, everything just feels gray. Can he find a way to make life bright again?
 
Harpreet Singh has a different color for every mood and occasion, from pink for dancing to bhangra beats to red for courage. He especially takes care with his patka-his turban-smoothing it out and making sure it always matches his outfit. But when Harpreet's mom finds a new job in a snowy city and they have to move, all he wants is to be invisible. Will he ever feel a happy sunny yellow again?
