Top Customer Reviews
You do not have to be from India to enjoy this captivating and enticing, realistic story that many can relate to. It is a clash between an American girl and her Indian origins that occurs in this novel. Dimple goes through similar problems that teenagers face, but this compelling novel also incorporates finding one’s culture as well as identity. Tanuja Desai Hidier takes an interesting approach to intrigue the reader with a mix of the Indian and American culture. This novel brings up worthwhile questions to think about even after you have finished it. Absorbing, questioning, and appealing, Born Confused not only makes you think about who you are, but where you are from.
