Review: Indie Girl

Daswani, Kavita. Indie Girl. New York: Simon Pulse, 2007.

Indira Konkipuddi is hardly the name of a fashion reporter, but that's what Indie wants to be more than anything. She desperately wants an internship with a top fashion magazine, Celebrity Style. Instead she ends up being the editor's baby-sitter. The magazine is in trouble and Indie finds a way to help.

What I thought: This was a great book. Indie's struggle to reconcile the 2 parts of her (Indian and American) reminded me of Mitali Perkins' book about Suni. I find myself drawn to these multicultural books. I like the cultural details that they present to the reader. With a book like this, you can enjoy the story, and at the same time learn about another culture.
