    PDF/EPUB Tanuja Desai Hidier Á Born Confused PDF Ë Á born book, confused kindle, Born Confused PDFThis book is a rare treat in that it presents the life of a typical American teenager with an atypical life is honest but doesn't stoop to cliches and stereotypes to tell its tale This is the story of Dimple Lala a young woman born and raised in New Jersey of Indian immigrant parents who is turning 17 at the beginning of summer Dimple rejects her parents old world culture and wants to be an All American girl but everyone else sees her as Indian For her parents Dimple getting drunk once while out with friends on her birthday is cause for a silent treatment and punishment of international proportions In one of my favorite lines from the book Dimple's mother says Giving birth to you was easy It is now that I am needing the epiduralDimple in comparison to her childhood friend Gwyn is positively a model child a good student a virgin who has only dated two boys she doesn't do drugs or do anything out of the ordinary to cause her parents to worry It turns out

    PDF/EPUB Tanuja Desai Hidier Á Born Confused PDF Ë Á born book, confused kindle, Born Confused PDFSo many aspects of this book were excellent The main character Dimple is wonderful and well drawn Her parents are so adorable and honestly portrayed you want to put them in your pocket The Indian thing is handled with grace; it's an actual exploration of what it means to belong to an ethnicity outside of its place of origin rather than a trite I feel weird people look different than me sort of story I thought Gwen was a hateful awful person but she was interesting and held my attention Karsh was perhaps a bit too dreamy but if you read it as if you are experienci

    PDF/EPUB Tanuja Desai Hidier Á Born Confused PDF Ë Á born book, confused kindle, Born Confused PDFI adored this book It started a little rough for me Hidier's exuberant restretching unforming rebubbling of the language was abrupt But once I dove in let the words into my ear let them bounce and scintillate and dance then I was wholly present Straightforward age old plot made very fresh here Everyone in this book does some growing in very believable sometimes painful ways I loved the glimpse into both the Indian culture of Dimple's parents and the hybrid dynamic culture of Dimple's peers My heart ached for some of the kids I met herein they were all very real people doing the best they can

    PDF/EPUB Tanuja Desai Hidier Á Born Confused PDF Ë Á born book, confused kindle, Born Confused PDFThis is a knock out coming of age YA novel about identity belonging friendship and romance It's the story of Dimple finding out who she is as a person discovering what her passions are reconnecting with her culture and family reimagining an old friendship and falling in love for the first time There's a lot in here about feeling stuck between culture

    PDF/EPUB Tanuja Desai Hidier Á Born Confused PDF Ë Á born book, confused kindle, Born Confused PDFI loved the idea of this book but I really disliked the execution Dimple Lala is an American born South Asian who can't decide where she fits in She doesn't embrace her Indian culture but she also can't fit in mainstream American culture The main idea of this book is supposed to be Dimple's journey to self discovery and understanding of her culture A great idea but it goes horribly wrongMy first problem is that Dimple seems to ignore the best parts of her culture and embrace the worst parts of American culture She gets drunk smokes weed lies to her parents feeling guilty but never having the backbone to do what she knows is right She scorns the culture her parents present to her and only recognizes its value when her best friend Gwyn tries

    PDF/EPUB Tanuja Desai Hidier Á Born Confused PDF Ë Á born book, confused kindle, Born Confused PDFAfter finishing this audiobook which was 14 hours long I realized that I'll miss the characters in this book This book was certainly wasn't perfect but wow Born Confused is undeniably special This book explores a variety of themes family friendship love arranged marriages cultural identity alienation from her Indian heritage following your dreams and growing up all which are explored very thoroughly and with nuance Loved how the narrative grew with Dimple; how her perceptions and presumptions change as she learns about her identity and that she can be proud of it Features a complex friendship with her best friend Gwyn who is white and does try to appropriate Dimple's culture The romance was sweet but a little lacking in dimension and depth Lastly it was

    PDF/EPUB Tanuja Desai Hidier Á Born Confused PDF Ë Á born book, confused kindle, Born Confused PDFIt is not just the fact that I identified so closely with this book that made me like it so much Or maybe it is Maybe the fact that the book so blithely talked about something that was close to my own reality that made me prize it above others Or maybe it’s because Dimple is a well drawn character who is so very dynamic in emotional growth throughout the novel Or her juxtaposition with the best friend who is in search for a culture and finds one the very one that Dimple is so determined to throw away Or maybe it’s the parents – my parents who have provoked many an eye roll for their deference to the ‘old ways’ and their refusal to move on and get with it Or perhaps it is just the sheer mastery of her prose her compelling plot all of which contain elements that will
