WDYMYNR Week: Born Confused by Tanuja Desai Hidier

This week we're going to shed a little light on some books that we love that are a bit older, but still deserve all the love...

Today Kady's got a can't-miss title!

Born Confused by Tanuja Desai Hidier

Dimple Lala doesn't feel Indian enough for her family, and all the other Aunties and Uncles who make up their Indian American community and she definitely doesn’t feel all-American enough to blend in with her school friends.

Where can a girl caught between two worlds find her place? Certainly not with the "suitable boy" her mom decides to set her up with, especially since he seems more interested in her very white best friend.

But after seeing him at a party one night, killing it as the DJ (a very unsuitable thing, according to her mom's rules) Dimple begins to wonder if just maybe she got it all wrong. Only one thing's for sure- she's the definition of an ABCD- American Born Confused Desi.
Born Confused is laugh out loud funny with a very cute boy and a most excellent best friend. It's just as relevant now as when it was published in 2002, after all feeling like you don't fit in will never go out of style.
