BOLLYWOOD BABES by Narinder Dhami

BOLLYWOOD BABES

Age Range: 12 - 14

KIRKUS REVIEW

The Bindi Babes—Geena, Amber and Jazz Dhillon—the popular and altogether likable Indian tweens from England, are back. Their school fundraiser’s Bollywood theme prompts them to track down Molly Mahal, a former Bollywood icon whose career ended with a scandalous affair, to ask her to be the guest of honor. When the girls find her about to be evicted, however, they instead ask her to live with them. Ever the diva, Molly demands to be waited on, steals attention from every male, makes the girls’ widowed father notice women again, has level-headed Auntie losing her cool and sets the sisters scheming to rid themselves of their house guest. The Dhillons discover that under the bangles and media hype, Molly has a conscience and knows how to unite a community. Dhami’s skillful blend of Indian culture, lighthearted escapades and serious subject matter introduced through humor will leave readers anticipating the next sequel. (Fiction. 12-14)
