New Delhi & Mumbai India – 12th June, 2017 Scholastic India, a division of Scholastic, the global children’s publishing, education and Media Company, is pleased to announce the publication of Medium Fast and Furious by Rahul Oak available in stores and online on 15th June.
Set in Bandra, Bombay, in the ‘90s, the story follows an adolescent, Raju who is aspiring to win the inter–school cricket tournament trophy. But mild-mannered and clumsy, Raju drops catches, is a mediocre bowler and has a wrong-footed action. To top it all, his parents would much rather he focused on becoming an engineer like his father. Will Raju’s dream of winning the KL Rao cricket tournament cup for his school team ever come true?
About the Author:

Inspired by Rahul’s passion for the game, Medium Fast and Furious is a coming-of-age story of cricket, puppy love, friendship, nepotism, power struggles, class differences and much more.
