    eBook Tanuja Desai Hidier  Born Confused Kindle ß Â born pdf, confused ebok, 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 experiencing him through Dimple's eyes then maybe it's dead on My only gripes are that

    eBook Tanuja Desai Hidier  Born Confused Kindle ß Â born pdf, confused ebok, 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 cultures too Indian to really be American and too American to really be Indian I loved the charac

    eBook Tanuja Desai Hidier  Born Confused Kindle ß Â born pdf, confused ebok, 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 ign

    eBook Tanuja Desai Hidier  Born Confused Kindle ß Â born pdf, confused ebok, Born Confused PDFI'm torn as to how I feel about this book First off please read Briynne's reviews of this book on here She does a great job of expressing some of my thoughts about the bookWhen I first picked this up I got into it and enjoyed reading it but maybe about 13 of the way through the story just felt incredibly drawn out I can understand Dimple's identity crisis and teenage angst regarding well being a teenager and also being an Asian American teenager but most of the time I wanted to shake Dimple by the shoulders and tell her to wake up get a backbone and get rid of Gwyn I also just wanted to tell Gwyn to stop acting like an idiot and well I want her out of the story The poor little beautiful rich girl whose parents ignore her is desperate for attention and is really just a troub

    eBook Tanuja Desai Hidier  Born Confused Kindle ß Â born pdf, confused ebok, 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
