Fictional fiction

I read this yesterday.

It was a bit pants to be honest, I only picked it up from the library because of all the fuss. The bits I liked best were the bits about Indian culture, describing the food and the family connections, that kinda thing.* The rest of it was same old teen novel...well several teen novels as it turned out. I knew some bits would be familiar, I just didn't expect it to all be familiar!

Kaavya Viswanathan

*and it turns out that the Wiki article says they were pinched too!

I enjoyed it. I loved her parents and the premise. The whole thing was a shame, I thought.
