Ayesha is excited to attend her cousin Ritu's wedding. She can't wait to dance at the baraat ceremony! But not everyone is happy that Ritu is marrying her girlfriend Chandni. Some have even vowed to stop the celebrations. Will Ayesha be able to save her cousin's big day?

Centering Ayesha's love for her cousin as much as it showcases Ritu and Chandni's love for each other, this warmhearted debut from Ameya Narvankar celebrates the power of young voices to stand up against prejudice and bigotry.

Review quote

"Simultaneously confronts homophobia and celebrates child-powered change in Hindu communities: a delight." - Kirkus Reviews (STARRED)

"With a dearth of picture books authentically addressing marriage traditions within the South Asian community, and particularly LGBTQ+ couples, this is a welcome attempt at rectification." - School Library Journal

"...a lively procession of jewel tones and golden yellows...to stand up for love against hate." - Foreword Reviews
