I LOVED this book. The characters were complex, interesting, and lovable. I was so invested, I felt a little ill when the characters were making questionable choices. Most of it had me laughing giddily and sincerely hoping for the best for all of the characters.
I liked this even more than last year’s When Dimple Met Rishi – Sandhya Menon excels at writing love interests who are swoony without being domineering jerks (in the parlance of the romance genre, I’d call them beta heroes), and this nicely balances a sort of coming-of-age story with a romance, and it was also satisfying to watch Twinkle realize the ways that she was maybe kinda being oblivious and hurtful, and learn to do better.
I liked this book. Took me back to high school when there were cliques and the not so popular people wanted to be in the popular group, some didn't care what people thought of them and some friends made new friends making you feel left out. Twinkle has some insecurities and has a hard time speaking up. She likes a boy but finds that she is attracted to that boy's twin brother. She makes some mistakes and she also corrects mistakes. She is a fun character. There are lessons in this story that would be good for a young adult to learn. I look forward to reading more by Sandhya Menon. Oh, and I adored Dadi. I want her as my grandma.
In a similar vein of "My So called bollywood Life", "From Twinkle, with Love" was full of great insight into NRI's and teen angst! FTWL is a bit faster paced with a focus in directing movies. I enjoyed the Colorado setting, too. Wish my high school days were this memorable!
A great little story where trying to stay true to yourself can be hard when you have a skewed perspective on things and yourself. Twinkle has a huge crush on Neil whereas Sahil, Neil's twin, has a huge crush on Twinkle, but then there's also movies, storytelling, trying to do documentaries, showing the truth, high school...... Just as lovely as When Dimple Met Rishi!
This was super fun and enjoyable, just as good as When Dimple met Rishi.
