This was a funny little book and different too, both in a good way. The characters are easy to identify with as they have the usual problems any family has. I loved how honest and real they all were and I enjoyed that they each had their individual voices heard. I felt sympathy for them and could easily connect with them and their issues. I was hoping for the best for them and cheering them on.

There were various topics discussed within the pages that many of us can relate to, not just Indian families…divorce, infidelity, online dating, children out of wedlock, parental expectations etc. The topics were dealt with in an authentic way and sometimes I just had to laugh at the antics.

The different perspectives are clear, concise and done very well. This is basically a book about life in general, how to be happy and be part of a family and learn to forgive with some surprises along the way. I liked that it showed how life for immigrants is different that their children who are born in their new homeland. This was a loveable mess of a family and I enjoyed the time I spent with them.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the Advance Readers Copy.
