Encounter: When Religions Become Classmates - From Oregon to India and Back (Paperback)
Annie had no plan to go to India. The essay contest was just a class assignment. But because her heart was breaking over what she had done, she wrote, she won, and she went ...
Annie falls hard for the new boy at school - a Sikh her parents forbid her to date - raising questions Annie has never faced. Then when a friend dies through events Annie set in motion, she cries out for answers. Escaping from her guilt and regret, Annie accepts a scholarship to study at an international boarding school in India. There she encounters a world she never knew existed. Though she longs for answers, India gives her much more than answers ever could - the courage to question.
Come walk (and run and climb) with Annie, Aziz, Ketsa, Vidhya, Danny, Param, and others from Oregon and India, where religions become classmates, and the world changes.
