Tanuja Desai Hidier - Bombay Blues

Bombay Blues

Author: Tanuja Desai Hidier

  • AGES 14 - 16 
  • Genre Fiction
Dimple Lala thought that growing up would give her all the answers, but instead she has more questions than ever. Her boyfriend is distant, her classmates are predictable, and a blue mood has settled around the edges of everything she does.It's time for a change, and a change is just what Dimple is going to get -- a change of scenery, a change of cultures, a change of mind. She and her boyfriend think they're heading to Bombay for a family wedding -- but really they are plunging into the unexpected, the unmapped, and the uncontrollable. The land of their parents and ancestors has a lot to reveal to them -- for every choice we make can crescendo into a journey, and every person we meet can show us something new about ourselves.

If, as USA TODAY proclaimed, Tanuja Desai Hidier's BORN CONFUSED gave voice to a new generation of Americans, BOMBAY BLUES shows everything those Americans are facing today, with a mix of uncertainty and determination, despair and art, loss and love.
