Bookcover: When Dimple Met Rishi

When Dimple Met Rishi

By Sandhya Menon
Grades 8+, 380 pAgEs

The summer after high school, Dimple and Rishi are thrown together (thanks to Rishi) to come up with an innovating app idea that’ll win Insomnia Con 2017. They would be a perfect match… except their personalities couldn’t be more different. Rishi’s priorities include pleasing his parents and enamoring Dimple; and Dimple couldn’t care less about relationships - she’s focused on her goal to become an app developer. When she discovers the reason her parents were so lax about letting her attend Insomnia Con was for her to fall in love with Rishi, she flips. As Insomnia Con progresses, they both get to really know each other and things change… completely. Told in the perspectives of both Dimple and Rishi, this romantic comedy is an enjoyable read for techies and non-techies alike.
 
“But even here, where it should just be about me and my career and the things I want to do in this world, I have to contend with you… my parents expect me to finally fall in line. To become that dutiful Indian daughter they always wanted.” – Dimple
 
“I can’t be an engineer and a part-time comic book artist… My parents, I made them a promise. I’m their oldest son. It’s just not going to happen. I have duties, obligations.” – Rishi
