Dimple Lala doesn't know what to think. Her parents are from India, and she's spent her whole life resisting their traditions. Then suddenly she gets to high school and everything Indian is trendy. Now things are more complicated than ever. At seventeen, she's still recovering from a year-old break up and her best friend isn't around the way she used to be. To make matters worse, her parents arrange for her to meet a "suitable boy." Of course, it doesn't go well--until Dimple goes to a club and finds him spinning a magical web of words and music. Suddenly the boy is suitable because of his sheer unsuitability, and complications ensue. This is a funny, thoughtful story about finding yourself, finding your friends, finding love, and finding your culture--sometimes where you least expect it.
