A Delightful Insight
Great narration, good story, and memorable one-liners for those who listen closely. The book puts you in the head of a 16 just turned 17 yr old intelligent American born Indian girl growing up in Jersey the summer before her Senior year in high school. It speaks to adapting to your culture but it's more than about being Indian.
My daughter " just liked the book" . For me it was a multi-cultural snapshot - Indian, high school, college, big city- and a reminder of high school Summer days, the journey of self discovery, and the importance of being connected to family and friends.

In defense of this book, I didn't realize it was of the "Judy Blume" ilk. I found the characters shallow, the narration pedantic, the characters stereotypical, and the story unbearable. If you're a teenager, this might be your cup of tea. For me, I stopped listening after the third chapter.
