Red Turban White Horse is a new Young Adult novel by Nandini Bajpai. We are soo excited to have been part of the Book Launch and were able to get a pre release copy yesterday. Our young readers immediately started on the book and here is their review.
Mini Kapoor is a 17 year old girl in the USA whose sister Vinnie is getting married. Both her Dad and her sister are too busy to make the arrangements for the wedding, so Mini takes it upon herself to plan the wedding with a limited budget. Most of the book is about the planning that goes into a big fat Indian wedding. With her famous fashion designer Masi, the jewelry Mini's Mom left them for when they were getting married and lots of other supporters, Mini is able to get everything planned.All the same, she still has to juggle the planning with her math tuitions, SAT prep and building up her art portfolio for college. She also meets a mysterious new guy, Vir, who keeps crashing into her and her dog, Yogi. Just when Mini manages to plan everything so that it fits in her budget, a hurricane decides to hit Boston on the exact day of the wedding. Now what will happen? Read the book to find out!!
I liked the book because it was very interesting and finding out how a young girl manages to arrange a wedding all by herself. I would recommend the book to my friends as a pleasant read. My favorite character in the book was Mini's Masi because she had a fantastic imagination for clothes.
