My Basmati Bat Mitzvah by Paula J. Freedman (2013) This is one of those books that can skew as either middle grade or a younger YA. Either works and either is appropriate. Tara, our narrator, is a lot of fun with a breezy voice that sounds authentic and true without being bogged down in vernacular or otherwise "talking down" to the reader. I also loved that Tara had supportive, understanding, present parents as well as friends. Although the story deals with Tara understanding the two sides of her heritage she is largely comfortable in her own skin. Which is huge. There is just so much to like here from the light, fun story to the cover model who looks just like you'd expect Tara to look. This is a story about acceptance and identity but also about more than that. Recommended. *This book was acquired for review from the publisher at BEA 2012*
