About the Author

Shanthi Sekaran is a novelist and television writer who lives in Berkeley, California. Lucky Boy, her most recent book for adults, came out in 2017. The Samosa Rebellion is her first middle grade book. When she's not writing, she plays soccer and the ukulele. She has two kids and a cat named Frog.


The Samosa Rebellion is a fascinating journey which seamlessly makes inventive parallels to our current issues of immigration, racism, classism, and xenophobia. A thought-provoking, fast-paced, and heartfelt adventure!--Veera Hiranandani, Newbery Honor-winning author of The Night Diary
"Sharp, incisive, and layered, The Samosa Rebellion is a deftly written, lovingly realized novel that is at a once page-turner and a call to action. Sekaran's characters are warm and passionate and impossible not to root for, and their story is urgent and nuanced and relentlessly readable."--Corey Ann Haydu, acclaimed author of One Jar of Magic
"The Samosa Rebellion is an extraordinary, thoroughly engrossing read. Warm and charming in its exploration of family and friendship, it's also sharp and clear-eyed in its depiction of a country's frightening slide toward an anti-immigrant nationalism." --Trenton Lee Stewart, New York Times bestselling author of the Mysterious Benedict Society series
An effective novel-length parable that tracks how microaggressions mask, and then escalate into, political policy and how the fortunes of legal residents can turn on a dime... A useful reading prompt for classroom discussion.--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
