Incognito: Lights. Camera. Undercover.

Aarav is on the run. From a gun toting, trigger happy, blood thirsty mobster, no less. That’s right, a dreaded gangster has sworn revenge, like, on his entire family. Forcing them to go into hiding. Which means, bye bye school, friends, old life! And no cell phone, no laptop, no iPad, no FB, no Snapchat, no Instagram, no Wifi, nothing. As if that wasn’t crazy enough, he has to assume a whole new identity. That wouldn’t be so bad - things were pretty sucky at school, anyway. Except, he has to pretend to be - hold your breath - a girl. Now Aarav may be the best actor around (and not just compared to his mom and brothers), but a girl? To make matters worse, he has the World’s Biggest Crush on his employer’s cute daughter, while the pesky son digs, ahem, him. With a dangerous criminal hot on his heels and a startling discovery that throws light on his father’s unsolved death, things only promise to get more complicated. Will Aarav’s cover get blown sky high or will this go down as the role of a lifetime? Will he manage to escape incognito or will he be finito?

Aarav is on the run. From a gun toting, trigger happy, blood thirsty mobster, no less.

That’s right, a dreaded gangster has sworn revenge, like, on his entire family. Forcing them to go into hiding. Which means, bye bye school, friends, old life! And no cell phone, no laptop, no iPad, no FB, no Snapchat, no Instagram, no Wii, nothing.

As if that wasn’t crazy enough, he has to assume a whole new identity. That wouldn’t be so bad - things were pretty sucky at school, anyway. Except, he has to pretend to be - hold your breath - a girl.

Excerpt: 

She raises an eyebrow . ‘If what I just saw is anything to go by…’
‘Ria Didi?’ Laksh puts in loyally. ‘She’s the best dancer in the whole wide world.’
Oh, that’s nice. And I didn’t even have to call him the best chef in the whole world for him to pay me a compliment.
‘Really?’ Kookie asks turning to look at me.
I shrug modestly. ‘It’s is my thing. It’s what I do. Dancing and acting, actually.’
She looks thoroughly impressed. ‘Wow.’
‘I’m not just a pretty face, you know,’ I say, arching an eyebrow.
She giggles at that.
