Synopsis

A New York Times bestseller A Goodreads Choice YA finalist'Get ready to fall in love with Dimple Shah and Rishi Patel' HelloGigglesThe arranged marriage YA romcom you didn't know you wanted or needed... Meet Dimple.Her main aim in life is to escape her traditional parents, get to university and begin her plan for tech world domination.Meet Rishi.He's rich, good-looking and a hopeless romantic. His parents think Dimple is the perfect match for him, but she's got other plans...Dimple and Rishi may think they have each other figured out. But when opposites clash, love works even harder to prove itself in the most unexpected ways. As joyfully refreshing as Rainbow Rowell, Jenny Han and Nicola Yoon, When Dimple Met Rishi is a frothy, funny contemporary romance told from the dual perspectives of two Indian American protagonists. While Dimple is fighting her family traditions, Rishi couldn't be happier to follow in the footsteps of his parents - could sparks fly between this odd couple, or is this matchmaking attempt doomed to fail?'Menon wrote an utterly delightful novel and broke my heart by writing an ending because I want nothing more than to keep reading about Dimple and Rishi forever . . . I'm looking forward to it being a huge hit of 2017.' Book Riot'Funny, warm, and utterly charming . . . Sandhya Menon is a welcome and needed new voice in YA.'Katherine Webber

Sandhya Menon was born and raised in India on a steady diet of Bollywood movies and street food, and blames this upbringing for her obsession with happily-ever-afters, bad dance moves, and pani puri. Now she lives in Colorado, where she's on a mission to (gently) coerce her family to watch all 3,220 Bollywood movies she claims as her favourite. Visit her online at sandhyamenon.com.

Customer Reviews

When Dimple Met Rishi was EASILY one of my most ANTICIPATED 2017 RELEASES (Right below A Court of Wings and Ruin and King’s Cage) and now that I’ve read it, I can HONESTLY SAY that this book is EVERYTHING THAT I’VE BEEN LOOKING FOR. Reading When Dimple Met Rishi was SO EYE OPENING. I felt like I WAS MIRRORED in Dimple, her need for independence, to rebel from societal pressures and to FIND HERSELF IN A WORLD THAT HAS ALREADY TOLD US WHO WE’RE SUPPOSED TO BE. I had an INSTANT CONNECTION with When Dimple Met Rishi, and it made me realize how I’d NEVER SEEN MYSELF IN A BOOK BEFORE THIS – How I NEVER felt the need to be represented until this book and I LOVED EVERY MOMENT OF THE AWAKENING. Reasons Why This Book Should Already Be In Your Hands: 1. THE DIVERSITY: YAY FOR #DIVERSEBOOKS. The diversity in this is ACCURATE, with the religion, the parents, the pressure and the judge-y aunty-jis. I ADORED Dimple’s line of thought and how similar Dimple and I, and I felt like I understood a LOT OF PEOPLE BETTER after reading Rishi’s. THIS WAS SO WELL DONE. I CANNOT EVEN TALK ABOUT HOW HAPPY I AM THAT THIS BOOK IS GOING TO BE IN SO MANY HANDS SOON; THAT THIS WAS JUST WHAT I NEEDED TO READ. I LOVED IT. 2. ALL THINGS INDIAN: After I connected with Dimple on SUCH A PERSONAL LEVEL, all of the Indian things that came into this book made me feel like I WAS AT HOME. Whether it was the Bollywood item songs for the talent show, the KHATTA MEETHA MIXTURE (Which is my FAVOURITE and I one I haven’t eaten in so long) or the feeling of being dragged to boring family functions, THIS BOOK WAS COMPLETELY PERFECT IN ALL ASPECTS. 3. THE ADORABLENESS: EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS BOOK WAS ADORABLE, OKAY? I absolutely loved the beginning with Dimple throwing her iced coffee on Rishi, how she slowly warmed up to him and his hopes and dreams about her. I loved their dates and the chemistry and how they just wanted the best for each other. #SWOON. 4. FOLLOWING YOUR PASSIONS: In India, about ten years ago, they only respected professions were wither being a doctor or an engineer. Parents FORCE their children TILL DATE to become one of these two things regardless if they hate it or not. I WAS SO GLAD THAT THIS BOOK HIGHLIGHTED THE DIFFICULTY TO SAY NO TO YOUR PARENT’S REGARDLESS OF WHAT THEIR EXPECTATIONS FOR YOU ARE. #AccuratelyDesi 5. THE TWO SISTER BAR AND BOOKS: This is a book shop. And a bar. NEED I SAY MORE? Sandhya Menon and I have decided to live under a table now and I’ve totally booked my flight tickers. Bye now. An absolutely adorable, brilliant and addicting book starring two Indian American teenagers that will stay with you long after you’re done.
