(About this author)
This is the touching and funny tale of teenager Sushminder and her struggles to survive in two conflicting cultures.
With a set of rules that detail how to be a good Indian girl, Susham Dillon desperately tries to make some sense of her life and to stop making a fool of herself. Born and bred in Dudley, she stumbles from one social slip to another, confounding expectations of what it means to be a good Indian girl. College is a disaster, not least because of her annoying bottle blonde cousin Sammy, while the dashing Arjun complicates matters further. Her home life is a living nightmare with her sister Kully's wedding festivities fast approaching. Her younger sister Kiz is a Bhangra Chick convinced of her imminent stardom in Bollywood, and don't even mention her brother.
