Overview for Born Confused
Dimple Lala doesn't know what to think. She's spent her whole life resisting her parents' traditions. But now she's turning seventeen and everything is more complicated than it's ever been. Her best friend isn't around the way she used to be (blame the boyfriend), and Dimple's still recovering from a year-old break-up. Then, to make matters worse, her parents arrange for her to meet a `suitable boy'â€¦ Of course it doesn't go well. Until a few weeks later when Dimple goes to New York from New Jersey and sees him as he really isâ€”someone who can move a club full of people with his amazing mix of music, and someone who might just understand her confusions. Suddenly the suitable boy no longer seems so unsuitable. Born Confused is a stunning debut from a talented new author about finding yourself, your friends and, above all, loveâ€”sometimes where you least expect it. Funny and lyrical, you won't want this book to end.
