Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi“Aru Shah and the End of Time” by Roshani Chokshi

“The problem with growing up around highly dangerous things is that after a while you just get used to them.” This is how the story begins for a girl named Aru Shah, a middle school girl, who lives in the Museum of Ancient Indian Art and Culture. Everything is working in her favor until her lies catch up with her and she takes up a dare to do the one thing she is forbidden to do: light the ancient candle that would supposedly be the start of the end of the world. Her journey begins and now she has nine days to save the world from destruction, while coming to terms with being a reincarnation of one of the Pandavas, a son of the Hindu god Pandu.
