BOLLYWOOD BABES, Narinder Dhami. THE KITE FIGHTERS, Linda Sue Park. It was the next morning, and she was stuffing books into her schoolbag higgledy-piggledy.

BOLLYWOOD BABES, Narinder Dhami. ALMOST STARRING SKINNYBONES, Barbara Park. Remember? We ate takeaways all the time and watched TV until midnight and Dad was never here, so we did whatever we liked.

Narinder Dhami is a young writer who has already found a strong voice for children's fiction. She has had two novels for a slightly older age group published by Collins, and we are looking forward to establishing her in a younger market on our list. Her first book for Transworld, ANNIE'S GAME, was published in Corgi Yearling in April 1999: 'A terrific story' The Observer, 'Dhami brings a light touch to the seriousness of the issues thrown up in this novel and to its resolution' Books for Keeps. Author lives: Cambridge.

Narinder Dhami (born 1958 in Wolverhampton) is a British children’s author. Narinder's father was an Indian immigrant from the Punjab who arrived in the UK in 1954, and her mother is English. She grew up in a multi-cultural environment, with Asian Indian and western cultures both major influences in her life, and was educated at Wolverhampton Girls' High School and then Birmingham University, where she graduated in 1980.

I told Kiran very innocently. It was Monday morning, the bell had just rung for morning break time and we were packing away our books after history with Mr. Lucas. Has anything happened?. I know wasn't going to say anything to Kiran. But my curiosity about her and Rocky was getting the better of me. Beside me Kim cleared her throat very noisily. I ignored her. Happened?. Kiran slid her books into her bag. I wondered if she was avoiding looking at me on purpose. Well, I just noticed that you seem a lot happier, I replied

A third outing for the three sassy sisters – the original Bindi BabesAmber, Jazz and Geena have finally secured auntie’s engagement to the gorgeous Mr Arora. Now the girls are now vying for the attention of the gorgeous new guy at school, Rocky, who has his own recording studio. Amber thinks she’s bound to capture his heart when she invites him to DJ at Auntie’s wedding, but when the girls go to hear Rocky sing, Amber realizes she’s made a big mistake. It’s going to be a huge headache to work this one out, but if they don’t, every guest at the wedding will have a worse one! Fortunately, a great idea comes from an unexpected source, and the girls bounce back again.

I read all three Bindi Babes books during a bored week this summer and thought they were generally good.

Things I liked:
1. The author obviously had an authentic knowledge of life in a mostly desi community in England. Because I am not from England, I had a pretty hard time in the beginning understanding some of the slang, how neighborhoods related to each other, and even that most of the anglicized names in the book were referring to other desi kids, but that is okay because the book does not apologize or over explain these things. You have to just figure it out as you go along.
2. The storylines were good for its young adult audience, although I would say that the it would be more for the 12-14 year old set, rather than the 15-18 year olds.
3. I liked how the last book of the trilogy ended with good closure, but leaving enough room that if she were to write another book, it would be okay.

Things that could have used some improvement:
1. Similar to another reviewer, I also had a little bit of a hard time, especially in the first book, figuring out the difference between the three main characters, or even basics about who was oldest, etc. By the third book, it was simple to differentiate in my head, but maybe setting a LITTLE more context would be good.
2. The book sometimes jumped from 'scene' to 'scene' without any warning (in the middle of a paragraph). I don't know if it is because the e-book formatting was poor or not, but in one example, the girls are at a store with an elderly person, and in the next sentence, the main character is waking up a few days later with an idea.

Specific things about each book:
Bindi Babes - not sure why the 'babes' are there, but nice enough story talking about what happens when an 'interfering Auntie' comes to stay with three sisters and their dad who are mourning the loss of their mom. I wish they developed Auntie's character more here, rather than just the girls' reaction to Auntie, but it was fine.
Bollywood Babes - my favorite book of the three. Cute storyline and really starts expanding the social circle/community the girls live in.
Bhangra Babes - A nice way to end the trilogy with general closure, and who doesn't love a wedding-- but, I do wish there were more descriptions of the wedding.

A cute, quick read in an authentic voice that I would recommend to anyone.

P.S. I was able to borrow this book electronically from my local library (through Overdrive) so you may want to try that before you buy.

I ADORE Narinder Dhami's books. Bhangra Babes kept me entertained for hours and hours. The plot was sweet and funny! I dont want to give away too much, but to me, this was a truly amazing book!
