Narinder Dharmi has written a book which is funny, deeply moving, and fast-paced - and sometimes all three at the same time! It is about three Asian sisters, the coolest girls in school, who have recently lost their mother. When their father realises that he cannot cope on his own, he sends for their auntie to come and keep an eye on them. She decides that what they need is a firm hand and routine - and they absolutely hate it! At every turn they try and upstage their aunt in an effort to get rid of her, but she manages to upstage them instead! In the end, they decide there's only one thing for it - to try and get her married off to the gorgeous Mr Aurora, one of their teachers, and get her out of their lives once and for all! Do they succeed? Read it yourself and find out!
This is a brilliant book which deals with deep issues such as loss, loneliness, racism, and superficial values with a lightness of touch which makes it a pure joy to read.
