When Arya Fell Through the Fault is the magical, coming-of-age tale of Arya, a 12-year-old boy from San Francisco, who is ridiculed by bullies. Anything to do with his ethnicity—food, traditions or the fascinating mythological stories he has been raised with, has become the building block of unpleasant school experiences. In the wake of an accident that confines his once vibrant mother to a hospital ward—kept alive by tubes and machines—Arya clings to the only remnant of their bond: an old, battered copy of the Ramayana, India’s ancient epic story of Rama’s battle against demons. One night, Arya falls through a fault in the earth into the Wild Woods, where Ravana—the demon king—strategises to destroy his Ramayana—the last copy left—and threatens to rewrite history from his evil perspective. Will Arya be able to save the story of Rama, heal his mother and return home to tackle the demons in his ordinary world?

” When Arya Fell Through The Fault” is a fantastic and amazing novel. This book is an interesting read. This story is of a 12 years old boy. The cover of the book is attractive and is surely suitable too. The prologue was enough to develop reader’s interest. Arya lives in San Francisco. He faces lots of problems in school as he is an Indian. I could feel the pain of Arya as he was being tortured in that school. He struggles a lot and he is unable to adjust in that school. Aryan’s mother is an Ayurveda doctor whereas his father is a cab driver. The boys in school make him so several wrong things if Arya wants to be a part of their group. For children,
this book will be a more intriguing read. The writing style of the author was quite easy and the book was not at all boring at all. I loved the way the author managed to make each part continuously in the flow. One while reading the book goes back to the days when we heard the story of Ramayana. This book will be more fruitful for children as I said earlier as many of them would be unaware of Ramayana. The book present the tale of ancient time of Ramayana including Ram fighting with the demon Ravana and winning it. Similarly, in this book Aryan is fighting in his life. The book teaches us that everyone faces some or another problem in life but one need to fight and win. Overall, the book has good vocabulary, easy language and is a wonderful read. I will suggest people to order this book and read it and make sure to pass the book to their younger ones.
