The Secret Journey of Pauline Siddhartha
Book Three in the Pauline, btw series
Pauline briefly achieves Nirvana in this much-anticipated third book in the Pauline, btw series. In The Secret Journey of Pauline Siddhartha, Governor General’s Award and Giller Prize finalist Edeet Ravel has crafted a Bridget Jones’ Diary for the younger set, a warm and funny snapshot of early teen life.
Our heroine Pauline Carelli-Bloom, in London visiting her grandmother, is enthralled by the different cultures she encounters. She finds herself swept off her feet by the charming young New Age enthusiast Nigel Sivananda. Will Pauline return to her faithful (if a little boring) boyfriend Yoshi, or will she escape to an ashram with Nigel, in pursuit of enlightenment and adventure?
