This book is about Dimple Shay and her arranged marriage partner Rishi Patel.

 

Dimple is thrilled to be starting college and is looking forward to her summer web development program. She is surprised that her parents agree to pay for it when all her Mama wants for her is to find the “Ideal Indian Husband."

 

Rishi, on the other hand, is desperate for this marriage to happen. He is attending the same program as Dimple, but only going to meet his future wife. Rishi has traditional parents like Dimple, but he elects to follow their customs.

 

Dimple and Rishi meet at the Web program, but aren’t sure how to act toward each other because of the awkwardness their parents set for them. Will Dimple and Rishi make the relationship with each other work or will their lives end up in a mess?

 

Opinion: 

When Dimple met Rishi is a book you won’t get tired of. This tale has lots of events which make up a filled storyline. The author did a great job writing about how the characters were feeling. Even though the book was written in third-person, I almost thought that it was first-person because of how well the feelings were explained. My only complaint of the book was that I wish there was more detail on the setting. This isn’t a huge deal, but I do think it would add to the story if there were more explanation on the location. 
 
I could really relate to Dimple in many ways because of how strong willed she was. She doesn’t want to mess around, but instead get her work done. She doesn’t let anybody get in her way of what she wants to do. She is very bold and really puts herself out there. Rishi is almost the complete opposite of Dimple. Rishi is a shy character who want to keep to himself. He obeys his parents without questioning them once. I admire Rishi’s ability to do what he thinks is right and not get caught up in some of the questionable things in the world. For example, in one part of the book Dimple and Rishi are at an after party. Dimple gets offered something to eat, and Rishi stands up and tells her you can’t just eat whatever you get offered. I like that trait in him. I do think that this book should be for mature seventh graders and up because of sexual content. Overall the book was very enjoyable.
