Must-read standalone companion novel to When Dimple Met Rishi
There’s Something about Sweetie
by New York Times bestselling author Sandhya Menon
“There’s something about the way Sandhya Menon writes love stories.
I’m head-over-heels for this charming, funny, romantic, life-affirming book.”
—Becky Albertalli, New York Times bestselling author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda
The irresistible companion novel to the New York Times bestseller When Dimple Met Rishi, THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT SWEETIE (Simon Pulse | On sale May 14, 2019) by Sandhya Menon follows Rishi’s brother, Ashish, and a confident, self-proclaimed fat athlete named Sweetie as they both discover what love means to them. With the intersectional body-positivity of Dumplin’ and the emotional heartstrings of To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, this swoon-worthy rom-com celebrates Indian culture and the power of falling for someone who likes you for you.
Ashish Patel didn’t know love could be so…sucky. After being dumped by his ex-girlfriend, his mojo goes AWOL. Even worse, his parents are annoyingly, smugly confident they could find him a better match. So, in a moment of weakness, Ash challenges them to set him up. The Patels insist that Ashish date an Indian-American girl—under contract. Per subclause 1(a), he’ll be taking his date on “fun” excursions like visiting the Hindu temple and his eccentric Gita Auntie. Kill him now. How is this ever going to work?
Sweetie Nair is many things: a formidable track athlete who can outrun most people in California, a loyal friend, a shower-singing champion. Oh, and she’s also fat. To Sweetie’s traditional parents, this last detail is the kiss of death. Sweetie loves her parents, but she’s so tired of being told she’s lacking because she’s fat. She decides it’s time to kick off the Sassy Sweetie Project, where she’ll show the world (and herself) what she’s really made of.
Ashish and Sweetie both have something to prove. But with each date they realize there’s an unexpected magic growing between them. Can they find their true selves without losing each other?
THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT SWEETIE is a laugh-out-loud funny coming-of-age novel full of warmth with a will-they-won’t-they romance that will keep readers on the edge of their seats.
