I’d like to thank my incredible parents, Herwinder and Sarbjit Ahuja, my wonderful older sister Amy (kidding), and my wise-beyond-his-years brother Partap.

David McCormick, my awesome agent at McCormick & Williams—you took me and this project on within 15 seconds on the phone and landed me my first great book deal.
