This book is so amazing!!! Once you start you just don't want to stop. It's funny and it absolutely addresses everything that's wrong with the way the world treats women, teenagers and just members of the female gender in general. As an Indian (and Hindu, just like Ajita *insert squeal and fangirling here because I'm relating to this book in my own special way*) I love the way she acknowledges the culture of her best friend, and just how much she shows we love and support our besties, and how they are practically family. It's just such a friggin amazing book and I legit can't wait for the sequel. Hats off to Laura Steven, who probably won't even see this, but your book is legit one of the best things that could've been brought into this world.
