Q and A by Vikas Swarup (AKA, Slumdog Millionnaire)

Eighteen-year-old Ram Mohammad Thomas is in prison after answering twelve questions correctly on a TV quiz show to win one billion rupees. The producers have arrested him, convinced that he has cheated his way to victory. Twelve extraordinary events in street-kid Ram's life - how he was found in a dustbin by a priest; came to have three names; fooled a professional hitman; even fell in love - give him the crucial answers. In his warm-hearted tale lies all the comedy, tragedy, joy and pathos of modern India.

This fantastic book has also recently been made into a film, 'Slumdog Millionaire'. The film has been nominated for a number of Oscars including best picture, best director and best cinematography.
Why not read the book before you see the film!

Rating - I give this 4/5 GREAT!!

Get this book from the library
