What I Meant by Marie LambaRandom House

Price: $16.99

What I Meant... is a hilarious and accessible story for teens about the universal experience of feeling misunderstood.

Sangeet Jumnal, is a fifteen-year-old who is part Indian, part American and every bit a teenager. She has a major crush on a boy at her school but her dad won't let her date until she is sixteen-- MAYBE.

Her mother, who usually sticks up for her, suddenly thinks she's a liar, a thief and bulimic. Only Sangeet knows why: Chachi, her aunt who has been living with them for the past few months, has been stealing food and money, setting Sangeet up to take the blame.

Now she must find a way to boot Chachi out, make her parents believe her and see her for who she really is: someone who is dependable and honest -- and totally ready to date.

What I meant is about normal young adult problems and family life in a small town, it's full of humour, personality and warm feelings. Teenagers will get it straight away and funnily enough so will parents.

This is a book you won't be able to put down, Maria lamba has been able to capture the teenage experience to such an extent that even adults will become engrossed. It's a great way for parents and teenagers to learn more about themselves and each other.
