Having a Sikh father, Irish mother and living in Scotland, Jazz wonders where she belongs. Her father has been killed and when her mother can't cope Jazz is sent to stay with her father's relatives in the Punjab. It's a hard adjustment to accept and it takes the 'Haggis-Indian' doctor, Elspeth, to help her understand the richness of belonging to more than one place. Their exchanges, in exuberant Scottish dialect, set in a Punjabi hospital, are the start of a wonderful bridging between cultures and people. This book is short, powerful and moving.
