BookDragon Books for the Diverse Reader

Monsoon Summer by Mitali Perkins [in AsianWeek]

Monsoon SummerGot the publication date confused and held it longer than intended – but can’t let it go without saying this is a grand coming-of-age story. Jazz Gardner travels to India with her family where her Indian-born mother will establish a prenatal clinic at the orphanage where she once lived. Jazz is especially torn about leaving her best friend – whom she most recently has realized is the love of her life. But it’s in India, and in her Indian roots, where Jazz finally finds her own true self.
