Description - Bindi Babes by Narinder Dhami

Three feisty, fun-loving Anglo-Asian sisters rule the roost over their dad since their mum died. They've got a reputation at school for being the coolest, most sorted babes in town - and what they certainly don't need is an interfering Auntie-ji from India inviting herself over to England and cramping their style. Which is exactly what their dad organizes - The girls decide the only way out of this nagging-adult dilemma is an arranged marriage - for their auntie! Enter Mr Arora, the dream boat teacher who just might whisk Auntie off in his arms and into the sunset. (They hope!)

Book Reviews - Bindi Babes by Narinder Dhami

US Kirkus Review » Amber, Geena, and Jazz have it all. The three tremendously popular Indian-British sisters are beautiful, brainy, and blessed with a closet full of cool designer labels, thanks to an indulgent, workaholic dad. Privately, the girls grieve their recently deceased mother and refuse to talk about her, instead diving into shopping and their envied reputation as the school's best and brightest. Until, that is, an interfering aunt from India comes to take over the household. Auntie sticks her nose into every part of the girl's lives, so they conspire to get rid of her the Indian way: by marrying her off. But how far are the polite girls willing to go, and will Auntie beat them at every turn? When they risk their sterling reputations, the plan has hilarious-and unexpectedly poignant-consequences. Told vibrantly from the middle sister's point of view, this light-hearted, fast-paced teen drama is instantly adorable, funny, warm, and genuine, with a delicious helping of multi-cultural spice. As with Bend It Like Beckham, which Dhami novelized so well, this features charmingly spunky every-girl characters to love and good storytelling to cheer. (Fiction. 10-14) (Kirkus Reviews)
