Gr 7 Up– Ashish Patel is the handsome star basketball player who could get any girl he wants, but all of that changes when his girlfriend, Celia, dumps him and he can't seem to find his mojo. Though it's not his usual style, he decides to take matters into his parents' hands and asks them to arrange a suitable date for him. Sweetie Nair is intelligent, beautiful, and an amazing athlete who happens to be fat. She is filled with confidence but is constantly knocked down by her mother who believes that Sweetie can't be happy until she is thin. When Ashish's mother decides that Sweetie is the right girl for him and Sweetie's mother declines the arrangement, Sweetie goes against her mother's wishes and dates Ashish. They both have their reasons for dating each other, but neither expects it to end in love. This is a companion to Menon's popular book When Dimple Met Rishi and is also told in alternating perspectives. Fans of Menon will not be disappointed and will be excited to see cameos of Rishi and Dimple.
VERDICT Give this entertaining read to romantic comedy fans everywhere.
