Why did I pick this book?

-         The cover was attractive.(Picture enclosed below)

-         Have read & enjoyed two more books from the author.

-         The book screamed “Teen Fiction” I thought no harm in being transported to a tension free world

-         The book is quite light just 188 odd pages.

What is it all about?


It’s the story of a 16 year old girl, Indie(her real name is Indira Gandhi & needless to say she hates it), settled in Los Angeles. Her father is a surgeon, mom a housewife & she also has a younger brother.

Indie is passionate about fashion? No, she is mad about it and thinks that she has all that it takes to be a fashion journalist. She has an eye & instincts about fashion. She is thereby eyeing “Summer Internship” in Celebrity Style(her favourite fashion magazine).

The book is all about what Indie does to get her hands on that internship, from arguing with her parents, to babysitting, to gossiping & nosing around.

Does she manage to grab the internship from Aralyn’s cousin?

If yes on what cost and if no then how will she take the failure? Does the experience make her a better person?

Read the book to know more…

Did I like the book? YES! Why?

:** Though this book also talks about Indians Settled Abroad but the characters here are not

Confused about their nationalities or culture in fact I found the characters more rooted than ever.

:Indie though is just 16 year old, she is very clear about her goals and how to achieve them, but in the process she never looses her respect for her parents & their views. She is ready to keep the promise she has made to her parents, even if it means letting go of her childhood dream.

: At places I felt that the book was influenced by “Devil Wears Prada”but after a point of time I wasn’t bothered because the only thing common here is fashion and the drive of the protagonist to achieve her dreams.

: The book in whole is enjoyable, with well sketched out characters & a racy narrative. You will live the journey of Indie, such is the narrative.

:I liked the book because the of the fact that it’s a simple story well told. To read about a teenager who has her goal defined at such young age is something that we don't get to read frequently.

: 188 pages only:-) a nice book for smiling, relaxing & breezing through. You won't learn anything from it but why do we need to be preached every now & then? Just let go & enjoy:-)

Just this much for a review, when the author has Kept It Short & Simple why should I preach? Would just say, buy the book read it, relive your teenage and keep it aside.

This time I haven't delved into ripping off the book because it runs on a wafer thin plot & the story is on one track there are no side stories & if I RIP it further, much wouldn't be left to read;-)  and since its a breezy & easy read, I thought why to think & analyse too much, just read it to Enjoy it:-D

PS Read & rate it wil give me more points & will increase your chances of getting a gift from me;-)
