About The Book: Jumping from the top of a mound of sand, you would say, is child’s play. And that’s what 11-year old Nidhi is doing one twilight, alone in the neighborhood making fun of the idioms “a leap in the dark” and “once in a blue moon”. What starts off as an innocuous prank makes the ground slip from under her feet, literally, and she falls into a world called Graria where events and people have tumbled out of a dictionary of idioms. Little does she know that there is someone out there who doesn’t want her to go back…
