“So she did the only thing she could think to do in the moment- she flung her iced coffee at him and ran the other way.” 🧡

This was the selection this month and it was amazing!! I loved this book! To me, it was the perfect YA romance. Refreshing and fun, I’m definitely saving this book for my daughter when she’s a bit older. I loved the characters and while Dimple took some warming up to, I loved Rishi and his whole family immediately. Without giving too much away, I feel like the journey Dimple took in how she felt about Rishi was totally realistic and believable. I also think the book really hit the nail on the head on how 2nd generation teens navigate their more traditional parents and how to be filial and respectful of cultural traditions when it is so different from the culture we are brought up with here in America. I think that’s a huge underlying theme that may not be so obvious but brought tears to my eyes during some of the talks between Dimple and Rishi. This was my first read by sandhyamenonbooks but certainly not my last! 🧡

  1. I absolutely loved the focus on melding cultural traditions and respecting family while trying to fit in as American teens. I listened to this audio in May and enjoyed it!!

  2. Beautiful review!! And I love that insight about the second-generation teens. Menon does such a great job developing that storyline with both Dimple and Rishi. 😀

  3. Love this review! I need to pull this one off my unread shelf😬 Lmk if/when you read the sequel and maybe we can time it right to read it together!

  4. That sounds like a wonderful book I’ll have to give a try soon! Also, I’m trying to start my own literary blog/Instagram and since you post so frequently, I was wondering if you have your reviews queued up or if you are just a super fast reader?!? Thanks!😊
