"Sonya Lalli's savvy novel puts relationships in all of their forms--family, friends, and romance--on even footing as a young woman works to find happiness."--Shelf Awareness Serena Singh is tired of everyone telling her what she should want--and she is ready to prove to her mother, her sister, and the aunties in her community that a woman does not need domestic bliss to have a happy life. Things are going according to plan for Serena. She’s smart, confident, and just got a kick-ass new job at a top advertising firm in Washington, D.C. Even before her younger sister gets married in a big, traditional wedding, Serena knows her own dreams don’t include marriage or children. But with her mother constantly encouraging her to be more like her sister, Serena can’t understand why her parents refuse to recognize that she and her sister want completely different experiences out of life. A new friendship with her co-worker, Ainsley, comes as a breath of fresh air, challenging Serena’s long-held beliefs about the importance of self-reliance. She’s been so focused on career success that she’s let all of her hobbies and close friendships fall by the wayside. As Serena reconnects with her family and friends--including her ex-boyfriend--she learns letting people in can make her happier than standing all on her own.

Editorial Reviews

“Sonya Lalli’s savvy novel puts relationships in all of their forms—family, friends, and romance—on even footing as a young woman works to find happiness." Shelf Awareness
“Heartfelt and forthright, Lalli’s culturally rich work of women’s fiction is exceptional.” Booklist (starred review)
“Narrator Ulka Simone Mohanty expertly portrays a diverse group of characters in a novel that challenges both Indian customs and feminist ideals…Mohanty’s range is best displayed during a spontaneous performance in which Serena reads her iPhone notes in a cadence that turns brainstorming into slam poetry. Mohanty’s narration captures another comedic moment when Jesse and Serena mock each other with exaggerated impersonations of each other.” AudioFile
