Bollywood film fanatic Winnie has grown up believing the future is written in the stars. Her family's pandit predicted she would find the love of her life before her eighteenth birthday. So when her relationship with Raj collapses, despite him meeting all the criteria, Winnie is lost. This is not how her perfect ending is scripted.

Then fellow film geek Dev challenges Winnie to look beyond her horoscope: is taking the future into her own hands the way to find her happily ever after? To get the perfect ending, Winnie will need a little bit of help from fate, family and, of course, a Bollywood movie star.

A fate-filled debut sure to dazzle fans of Stephanie Perkins, Maureen Johnson and Sandhya Menon.

Review quote

"Seriously one of my new favorite contemporary couples." -- Alexia Cambaling, The Book Worm Daydreamer "MY SO-CALLED BOLLYWOOD LIFE is an adorable story!! ... [Winnie] is such a funny, smart and independent main character and I loved reading about her passion for movies!" -- Zoe Nicolai, Zoe Reads X "I LOVED Winnie. She's so ... fierce. She knows exactly what she wants, and she will do what she needs to do to get there. She's got a Slytherin heart, and I adore her for it." -- Lorna O'Connor, Cranky Autistic Blog "I don't know if you can hear me screaming, but I want you to know that I am indeed screaming from all the cuteness...The Bollywood references, the sweet family dynamics, the friendship and some cute romance made this book so fun and entertaining and I'm so glad I picked it up!" -- Neonila K. "This book is a fun drama filled teen romance with a headstrong Bollywood loving main character... It is a great book about romance, family, friendship and destiny that I'm sure many teens (and slightly older readers like me!) will enjoy and get the warm fuzzies from!" -- Emily Kindregan, The Hayesbrook School "An absolutely amazing book which is definitely going to leave a mark on me, probably forever. I would definitely recommend for Bollywood fans and those who love stories that are fun, romantic and with a little bit of masala." -- Rushda Khandker "MY SO-CALLED BOLLYWOOD LIFE is a witty, fun and heartwarming story about a girl who tries to make her future her own. Once you start this book, you won't be able to put it down. The premise of the story is like a literal Bollywood movie and delivers on all fronts. Nisha Sharma's writing is fast-paced, endearing and full of witty remarks. If you enjoy a fun romantic read then you should definitely read MY SO-CALLED BOLLYWOOD LIFE." -- Ilona Groen, Vivacious Book Nerd "I absolutely adore this book. Witty, fun, believable characters - I wish it had been around when I was in my teens, however it is DEFINITELY one of those YA books adults can enjoy too. I feel so inspired to go and watch lots of Bollywood movies now!!" -- Hilary Bell

About Nisha Sharma

Nisha Sharma grew up immersed in Bollywood movies, eighties pop culture and romance novels, so it comes as no surprise that her first novel MY SO-CALLED BOLLYWOOD LIFE features all three. Nisha credits her father for her multiple graduate degrees and her mother for her love of Shah Rukh Khan and Jane Austen. She lives in New Jersey with her cat, Lizzie Bennett, and her dog, Nancey Drew. Visit / @nishawrites.
