Monsoon Summer

Maybe it's not fair to write about a book I haven't read yet but I heard an author speak on Friday at a library conference and she was so good, I want to recommend her book to all of you. Her name is Mitali Perkins and she has written two books Monsoon Summer and The Sunita Experiment. Both books are about young people adapting to life caught between two cultures.

Mitali Perkins spoke about what it's like growing up in the U.S. with parents born in India. Her website is excellent and it also touches on this topic as well.
