For Willie Mehta, Bollywood films are life. All her free time is spent watching Bollywood, critiquing Bollywood, and preparing for film school at NYU. She is president of the school film society and her senior year is looking good. Until her long time boyfriend--the one that a pandit predicted was her soulmate--finds a new girlfriend. To make matters worse, Raj is also named chair of the student film festival in Winne’s place. Suddenly, Winnie’s sure future looks a little unstable. And Dev, a charming and interesting fellow film junkie, is only adding to the confusion.
My So-Called Bollywood Life is a light, coming of age romance with great characters and a fun plot. An added bonus is a list with accompanying reviews of almost 50 classic Bollywood films. Winnie’s story gives a glimpse of Indian culture and makes readers want to binge watch Bollywood. A good one for teen and tween readers to add to their reading lists.
