This book has everything! Enemies to lovers trope, familial matchmaking, and a love interest with a heart-melting smirk (and a voice from the heavens!). As an only child, the relationship between the close-knit Damani girls warmed my heart (and filled me with only-child jealousy). Even more, Zuri’s big, loud, joyful family felt like real people I was meeting (probably because author Sajni Patel based the characters on her real extended family). Although they don’t always agree with her, Zuri’s doting Masi, scheming cousins, perfect sisters, and generous parents support her through the ups and downs, as well as chatting up the adorable Naveen Patel.
Speaking of Naveen Patel- the perfect rom-com love interest, Naveen respects Zuri for her talent and heart, sings like a total superstar, and gets her breakfast bagels without being asked. Swoon alert! As a lover of weddings, this story was a bigger treat than scrolling for hours through WeddingTok. I can’t say enough good things about this book. Do your heart a favor and give My Sister’s Big Fat Indian Wedding a read. -Julia
Zurika Damani is a naturally gifted violinist with a particular love for hip hop beats. But when you’re part of a big Indian family, everyone has expectations, and those certainly don’t include hip hop violin. After being rejected by Juilliard, Zuri’s last hope is a contest judged by a panel of top tier college scouts. The only problem? This coveted competition happens to take place during Zuri’s sister’s extravagant wedding week. And Zuri has already been warned, repeatedly, that she is not to miss a single moment.
In the midst of the chaos, Zuri’s mom is in matchmaking mode with the groom’s South African cousin Naveen—who just happens to be a cocky vocalist set on stealing Zuri’s spotlight at the scouting competition. Luckily Zuri has a crew of loud and loyal female cousins cheering her on. Now, all she has to do is to wow the judges for a top spot, evade getting caught by her parents, resist Naveen’s charms, and, oh yeah . . . not mess up her sister’s big fat Indian wedding. What could possibly go wrong?
