Sunny G's Series of Rash Decisions

Dhillon, N.S.
When Sikh teenager Sunny’s brother Goldy dies from alcoholism he struggles with his own identity and writes a list of rash decisions in Goldy’s journal, including shaving his beard, cutting his hair, and not wearing a turban – doing his best not to be Sikh – and attending the prom on the night of the one-year commemoration of Goldy’s death. At prom he meets Mindii, who makes her own rash decisions including stealing Sunny’s journal, and they spend a night filled with interesting and rash decisions. The novel explores bullying, racism, ableism, stereotyping, religion, identity, and loss, and can be useful for small group or individual novel study.
