Praise for Damselfly:
"Chandra Prasad gives us a terrifying, modern-day Lord of the Flies, rendered in exquisite and exacting prose. A brave take on teen cruelty, identity, mixed race experience, class, and survival."
-- Marina Budhos, author of Ask Me No Questions
"Who are we when we are only accountable to ourselves? This bold, deft novel exposes how fragile the world we inhabit really is and what it might take for us to survive."
-- Neela Vaswani, co-author of Same Sun Here
"Prasad breathes fresh life into this fusion of Lost, Prep, Gossip Girl, and William Golding’s classic."
