A Girl Like Me
Recently transplanted from the quiet suburbs of Minnesota to bustling Gurgaon, sixteen-year-old Anisha Rai is determined to hate her new life. While her irrepressible mom, Isha, loves her new job, Annie clutches on to the memories of her father.
Annie's life becomes too hot to handle when she discovers that her childhood friend Keds has transformed into quite a dude; theatre enthusiast Kunal wants to teach her a lot more than drama; and Rani who lives upstairs is not as sweet and simple as she appears.
Deftly weaving through home and school and love and loss, A Girl like Me is a roller-coaster ride packed with the
breathless exuberance of teenage life.
