This would have been the perfect book for teenage-me.

The best part of this book was how unlikeable the main character is, and how utterly unapologetic she is about it. This is a character who knows who she is, knows what she wants, and has no problems doing whatever it takes to get it. While this may not be everyone’s preference, it was a refreshing change of pace from many other books I’ve read recently, and for that reason alone, I loved it. (Also, it was pretty cool to see an Indian-American main character whose conflict had nothing to do with her Indian-ness.)
Reshma Kapoor has a perfect academic record, a long list of extracurriculars and she’s the top-ranked senior at her high school, but she needs something more to guarantee a spot at Stanford. Enter a literary agent, a book deal, and a plan to create the perfect best-selling YA novel from her own life.
