Cute fluffy romance

I love the concept of this book - When Harry met Sally with Indian American teenagers. The world needs more books about diverse characters and more romances with Asian American leads. The writing and pacing were a bit flat for me. I put the age at 14-15+ because the 18 year old main characters do have sex, which while not graphic, does having them taking their shirts off. Definitely too mature for my 12 year old.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Formulaic , but cute

I read on the dust jacket that the author was a fan of Bollywood and that makes total sense because this book is basically Bollywood meets a YA novel. It's about 17+ year olds so there are several mentions of sexual activity and one sex "scene" (though nothing is graphically described). Some of the characters are a bit stereotypical and flat and the storyline was completely formulaic and predictable, but it had some cute moments. A good beach book!
