Bindi Babes by Narinder Dhami
14 yr old Geena, 12 yr old Amber and 11 yr old Jazz are sisters and very close. The sisters are very popular at school with the other students and the teachers. At home their dad says yes to whatever they want, ever since their mum died. Everything is about to changes, their Auntie moves to England from India to help look after the sisters.
Geena, Amber and Jazz want nothing to do with Auntie and try to figure out ways to get rid of her. The sister tried really hard (with their I love Lucy schemes) but Auntie was always one step ahead of them. It was fun watching the sisters attempt to out smart Auntie.
I really enjoyed this story and the sisters. The one thing I didn't like was the sisters little comments about everyone seeing them as perfect and cool. Though thankfully this stopped quickly enough. The Bindi Babes was the right amount of fun and serious. As the sisters try to deal with their Auntie and cope with missing their mom. An excerpt
I will be reading Bollywood Babes very soon.
Reading Bindi Babes reminded me of author Neesha Meminger's wonderful guest post at The YA YA YA's, called An Equal Place at the Table
