Sample Page from Samira’s Awful Lunch:

Samira made a face when she opened her tiffin box and thought,
‘Who wants to eat parathas and brinjal curry?
Not I.’ Last week Amma had given her noodles with capsicum and carrots.
“The noodles are squiggly and they look like worms, ”
she said when she went back home.
