Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

Overall, the book's writing is clever and humorous. The story of best friends going gaga over a movie idol -- and their sadness at being separated by circumstance -- will resonate with the book's target audience. Some readers may be a little put off by the plot, which strays in all sorts of directions and has an amazing number of coincidences that pull it all back together, but Bollywood movie fans (like Dini) would expect such a scenario from the start.

This book will especially be a hit with kids who like stories about best friends, exotic places (especially India), and filmmaking. They'll love Dini's well-drawn world, complete with all its dazzling drama and crazy adventure.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
