    Sideways on a Scooter follows Miranda Kennedy, a young american

    Sideways on a Scooter follows Miranda Kennedy, a young american journalist, as she embarks on a life abroad, living for several years in Delhi, India. As someone who knows next to nothing about India, I found her book engrossing and eye-opening. It's a story about women, caste, religion, cultural beliefs, family, and how we all struggle to find our moral compass in the world. That Kennedy did it while living in a foreign country showcases her sharp insights as well as her fumbling ineptitude in dealing with people--Indian and American--along the way. She doesn't shy from revealing low moments and her own bad behavior, and she relates the stories of several Indian women in such great detail that it kept the pages turning in anticipation of discovering how it would all work out for them. Ultimately this is a story of a woman growing up and it held me captivated until the very end.
