OMG! This book!
It's so stinkin' cute.
It's full of voice.
It's rich in a super interesting culture I loved learning more about--accessible to ALL.
In short... it's worth the hype, and more. Pick up WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI by Sandhya, and I promise you won't regret it.
RATING: 5 stars
WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI
A laugh-out-loud, heartfelt YA romantic comedy, told in alternating perspectives, about two Indian-American teens whose parents have arranged for them to be married.
Dimple Shah has it all figured out. With graduation behind her, she’s more than ready for a break from her family, from Mamma’s inexplicable obsession with her finding the “Ideal Indian Husband.” Ugh. Dimple knows they must respect her principles on some level, though. If they truly believed she needed a husband right now, they wouldn’t have paid for her to attend a summer program for aspiring web developers…right?
The Shahs and Patels didn’t mean to start turning the wheels on this “suggested arrangement” so early in their children’s lives, but when they noticed them both gravitate toward the same summer program, they figured, Why not?
Dimple and Rishi may think they have each other figured out. But when opposites clash, love works hard to prove itself in the most unexpected ways.
