From Twinkle, With Love is a relatively recent release that combines the awkwardness of high school with the dramatic flair of Bollywood. It's comparable to other YA novels and includes secret online relationships and their subsequent dramatic reveals, what exactly goes on behind the curtains in a school theatre during Tech Week, and just how empowering friendship can be within a diverse group of teens. Told in emails and texts, with some cameos from When Dimple Met Rishi, Twinkle is the work of literature that Desi teens living in the American diaspora need.
"Utterly charming." --NPR"Cinematic." --Teen Vogue"Funny and sweet." --Buzzfeed Three starred reviews for this charming romantic comedy about an aspiring teen filmmaker who finds her voice and falls in love, from the New York Times bestselling author of When Dimple Met Rishi.
Aspiring filmmaker and wallflower Twinkle Mehra has stories she wants to tell and universes she wants to explore, if only the world would listen. So when fellow film geek Sahil Roy approaches her to direct a movie for the upcoming Summer Festival, Twinkle is all over it. The chance to publicly showcase her voice as a director? Dream come true. The fact that it gets her closer to her longtime crush, Neil Roy--a.k.a. Sahil's twin brother? Dream come true x 2.
When mystery man "N" begins emailing her, Twinkle is sure it's Neil, finally ready to begin their happily-ever-after. The only slightly
inconvenient problem is that, in the course of movie-making, she's fallen madly in love with the irresistibly adorkable Sahil.
Twinkle soon realizes that resistance is futile: The romance she's got is not the one she's scripted. But will it be enough?
Told through the letters Twinkle writes to her favorite female filmmakers, From Twinkle, with Love
navigates big truths about friendship, family, and the unexpected places love can find you.
