In life you don't get what you deserve, you get what you negotiate . . . What would you do if, out of the blue, a billionaire industrialist decided to make you the CEO of his company? No prior business experience necessary. There is only one catch: you need to pass seven tests from the 'textbook of life'.

This is the offer made to Sapna Sinha, an ordinary salesgirl in an electronics boutique in downtown Delhi, by Vinay Mohan Acharya, one of India's richest men. Thus begins the most challenging journey of Sapna's life, one that will test her character, her courage and her capabilities. But are the seven tests for real or is Acharya playing a deeper game, one driven by a perverse fantasy?

From the acclaimed author of Slumdog Millionaire, one of the biggest films of the decade, comes this compelling, suspenseful story about the power of dreams, the lure of money and the universal need to know who we are.
