Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-7–In this sequel to Bindi Babes(Delacorte, 2004), Geena, Amber, and Jazz come to the aid of a former Bollywood star who's fallen on hard times. The sisters are hoping that Molly Mahal will liven up their school's upcoming fundraising event, but they underestimate the turmoil she will cause when they offer to let her stay in their house for an indeterminate time. All of the males in the novel fall under Molly's spell, including the girls' widowed father and their teacher; but the sisters and their aunt are obliged to wait on the self-absorbed diva hand and foot, and it is unclear whether she has any intention of helping with the school's economic crisis. Dhami's pacing and scene-setting are more cinematic than novelistic; there is little differentiation among the sisters, leaving readers unfamiliar with the previous book confused, and the setting is equally sketchy. While fans of the first title may enjoy this book, it is not a first purchase.–Miriam Lang Budin, Chappaqua Public Library, NY

From Booklist

Gr. 5-8. In this sequel to the lighthearted Bindi Babes BKL S 15 04], teen sisters Geena, Amber, and Jazz continue to orchestrate a setup between their dreamy teacher, Mr. Arora, and their aunt, who has moved from India to Britain after the death of the girls' mother. When Auntie and Mr. Arora join efforts to plan a Bollywood-themed fund-raiser for the sisters' suburban English school, the girls secretly invite a former Bollywood actress, Molly Mahal. The faded film star has fallen on such hard times, however, that the girls impulsively ask her into their home, bringing tension and new worries: Will Molly steal Mr. Arora's heart, or, worse yet, their father's? The particulars of Indian culture add richness to the story, and Dhami raises interesting questions about celebrity and a family's changing shape following a parent's death. But in true chick-lit fashion, the girls' grief over their mother is outshone by sunny schemes, affectionate bickering, and slapstick negotiations. Gillian Engberg

I read all three Bindi Babes books during a bored week this summer and thought they were generally good.

Things I liked:
1. The author obviously had an authentic knowledge of life in a mostly desi community in England. Because I am not from England, I had a pretty hard time in the beginning understanding some of the slang, how neighborhoods related to each other, and even that most of the anglicized names in the book were referring to other desi kids, but that is okay because the book does not apologize or over explain these things. You have to just figure it out as you go along.
2. The storylines were good for its young adult audience, although I would say that the it would be more for the 12-14 year old set, rather than the 15-18 year olds.
3. I liked how the last book of the trilogy ended with good closure, but leaving enough room that if she were to write another book, it would be okay.

Things that could have used some improvement:
1. Similar to another reviewer, I also had a little bit of a hard time, especially in the first book, figuring out the difference between the three main characters, or even basics about who was oldest, etc. By the third book, it was simple to differentiate in my head, but maybe setting a LITTLE more context would be good.
2. The book sometimes jumped from 'scene' to 'scene' without any warning (in the middle of a paragraph). I don't know if it is because the e-book formatting was poor or not, but in one example, the girls are at a store with an elderly person, and in the next sentence, the main character is waking up a few days later with an idea.

I checked this out from the library, and enjoyed listening to it. The narrator is very good at creating distinguishable voices, and it was interesting to listen to. Tho I could tell how it would end, the journey there was an enjoyable one.
