Highly Recommend- Please read all you second generation Indians in the US!
This book really touched me because I happen to be half-Indian. I really enjoyed the development of Sunita as a character, although the plot with her crush, Michael Morrison was all to predictable. The overall lessons, with Sunita developing a bond with her family, her grandparents who change her way of life, her mom (who seems to have reverted to permanent Indian ways, even to the extent of sacrificing her job), and her dad who doesn't understand Sunita's lack of interest in the Indian culture. This is both a journey for Sunita, into some Indian ways, and a journey of her grandparents to become more Americanized. The author's voice is consistent with a teenage girl, unlike some other children's stories. I enjoyed this book immensely and I recommend it.Was this review helpful?

YOU GUYS ARE KIDDING RIGHT?!?!?!!
I thought that this book was excellent. I bought it two days ago at my school book fair. At first its a litte dull and you think here we go again another teen despising her culture but i felt forced to finish it because i started reading it. And im happy that i kept reading it because it really started to take off in the middle. I recommend this book to anyone who might be looking for a humorous yet serious book.Was this review helpful?
