By 2020, the fight over resources, growing unemployment, and corruption push a densely populated island in the Indian Ocean into Civil war.  Kal, only a school boy at the time, finds his life radically altered by the conflict. Now, returning after fourteen years of refuge in Australia, he encounters a place transformed into a beacon of peace and organisation. But there's something odd about the order. Does a fringe group hold answers?

The Leeway Towers consists of two parts - part 1 from chapters 1 to 24 where the story is centered around 2020 and
part 2 from chapters 25 to 50 centered around 2034. Kal is a happy teenager living with his grandfather when his
life goes upside down. He returns back from his refugee in Australia and on the surface things seem fine, only on
the surface; everything is peaceful and appears sorted. What forced Kal and his grandfather to shift to Melbourne
as refugees and what awaited Kal when he returned, how both the parts are related forms the rest of the story. 
The book is an appropriate representation of the current society we live in albeit we not realizing where we are
headed to, in the name of development and betterment of lives; exploiting resources without stopping and
thinking where this we ultimately end. At 400 pages, when you first hold the book in hand, you might wonder
what the author would like to convey given the short blurb speaks of corruption and unemployment. Though
some chunks of part1 seem bit slow, part2 makes up with the racy content. Also, reader will be too impressed
with how the author ties up both the parts seamlessly. 

Kal’s transformation from a carefree teenager to a mature individual in the second part is the highlight,
along with simple language and unique parallel narration style. The fresh concept which almost feels like
reality instead of being dystopian, forces the readers to introspect. The author impresses by taking care of
even the minutest details related to the story. As the reader gets immersed in the story, the length of the
book is easily forgotten. With a simple but slick cover design and strong characterizations,
The Leeway Towers is a must read as the book is an all-round winner, as it scores on all parameters.

Marijuana—also called weed, herb, pot, grass, bud, ganja, Mary Jane, and a vast number of other slang terms—is a greenish-gray mixture of the dried flowers of Cannabis sativa.

The main active chemical in marijuana is THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), the psychoactive ingredient. The highest concentrations of THC are found in the dried flowers, or buds. When marijuana smoke is inhaled, THC rapidly passes from the lungs into the bloodstream and is carried to the brain and other organs throughout the body. THC from the marijuana acts on specific receptors in the brain, called cannabinoid receptors, starting off a chain of cellular reactions that finally lead to the euphoria, or "high" that users experience. Feeling of a relaxed state, euphoria, and an enhanced sensory perception may occur. With higher THC levels in those who are not used to the effects, some people may feel anxious, paranoid, or have a panic attack.
Cannabis plant used for medical or recreational purposes. The main psychoactive part of cannabis is tetrahydrocannabinol, one of the 483 known compounds in the plant, including at least 65 other cannabinoids.
