Indie Girl by Kavita Daswani [in Bloomsbury Review]
Ethnic chick-lit favorite Kavita Daswani makes her young adult debut with a fun, breezy read starring one Indie Konkipuddi, a 15-year-old style-queen-in-the-making. While her neurosurgeon father can’t understand why she would take a weekend babysitting gig, Indie is willing to do just about anything to get close to Aaralyn Taylor, publisher of the überglamorous Celebrity Style magazine. As she bonds with Aaralyn’s two-year-old son (surprise, surprise to all), Indie discovers some delicious secrets that just might save her boss’s faltering career.
