Description

Dimple Lala thought that growing up would give her all the answers, but instead she has more questions than ever. Her boyfriend is distant, her classmates are predictable, and a blue mood has settled around the edges of everything she does. It's time for a change, and a change is just what Dimple is going to get -- of scenery, of cultures, of mind. She thinks she's heading to Bombay for a family wedding -- but really she is plunging into the unexpected, the unmapped, and the uncontrollable. The land of her parents and ancestors has a lot to reveal to her -- for every choice we make can crescendo into a jour-ney, every ending can turn into a beginning, and each person we meet can show us something new about ourselves. Tanuja Desai Hidier's BORN CONFUSED gave voice to a new multicultural generation. Now, Bombay Blues explores everything this generation faces today, with a heady mix of uncertainty and determination, despair and inspiration, haunting loss and revelatory love.

Reviews

*"Many readers may not persevere; those that do may stall out with the multiple false endings as Dimple stutter-stops her way to an ending--but, tragically, they'll be missing out." "Kirkus, "starred review
