Up and Coming: When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

release date: May 30, 2017

Dimple is super ready to jump into life after high school, particularly because in the fall, she's headed to Stanford to pursue her passion for coding and design. When there is a spot at San Francisco State University 's summer intensive app design program for her, Dimple is desperate to attend and begin working towards her goals. After her parents give her the go-ahead, she packs her bags and is on her way.

Rishi is also headed to the SFSU's program--partly because it will give him a jumpstart for MIT (where he'll be attending in the fall), and partly because his parents want him to get to know a girl they think would match well with him. Of course the girl, Dimple, has no idea that her parents have been setting her up.

When Dimple and Rishi meet, it seems like disaster, especially when the two are paired to work together. But, instead of crashing and burning, Dimple and Rishi kind of hit it off.

Dimple has no interest in getting involved with anyone and definitely not with a boy her parents want to set her up with. And though Rishi loves that Dimple pushes him to be truer to his passion for art, he isn't sure that he trusts her with his true wishes for the future. But, as the days go by at the institute, Dimple and Rishi find themselves getting closer as their time together grows shorter...

This book gave me all the Anna and the French Kiss feels. There's romance blooming on campus with lots of late night walking and talking. It's incredibly swoony and one of my favorite books of the year so far. Both characters are realistically drawn with hopes and fears that make them very human. Pair that with some seriously snappy and fun dialogue and you have one very happy rom-com fan. I'll be revisiting this one often.
