review Skunk Girl Ó eBook or Kindle ePUB If Nina Khan were to rate herself on the unofficial Pakistani prestige point system – the one she's sure all the aunties and uncles use to determine the most attractive marriage prospects for their children – her scoring might go something like this 2 points for getting excellent grades –3 points for failing to live up to expectations set by genius ol. Skunk Girl is the emotional journey of a teenager called NinaNina KhanNina lives in small town Deer Hook population 11250 In her school with it s expected coterie of snobbish cheerleaders handsome jocks and loving but sometimes clueless friends brown skinned Nina feels like the odd one outThe fact that she is a Pakistani Muslim and comes from a conservative household means that she s often envious of the freedom that her friends take for granted While being a fairly intelligent student herself she has to constantly face comparisons with her super nerd Harvard attending sister Sonia Nina suffers the secret pangs of being a fairly hairy teenager and the added shock of discovering a thick strip of soft hair running down the center of her back ergo the title She isn t allowed out on weekends and is constantly under her parents radar lest she becomes Americanized or as her aunt would scathingly put it umreecanized So what happens when you throw in an handsome Italian boy called Asher Richelli who despite being wooed by the most popular girl and Nina s nemesis appears to be interested in the go nowhere NinaI liked the book I really did Far than I had anticipated Coming from a fairly conservative South Indian family myself I associated with Nina s teenage frustrations And maybe I enjoyed it for the trips down memory lane that it took me I read out snarky sections to my mum and she gave me the cheeky smile cum weary resignation as we remembered similar incidents Many might complain that Nina whined A Lot Let me just tell you that it s NOT an exaggeration I whined and whinged An embarrassing LOT Maybe now as an adult I understand where my parents were coming from Evolved thought processes have taken their time to settle in But yep teendom was an angry canvas of red faced me bawling out at the unfairness of it allNina Khan s story is believable and entertaining It has a nice vein of self deprecating humour running through it The ending could either be termed as realistic or a bit surprising consider your outlook Either which way it s a story by an author who has immersed herself into her plot and used it to maximum effect

review Skunk Girl Ó eBook or Kindle ePUB Der sister 4 points for dutifully obeying parents and never ever going to parties no matter how antisocial that makes her seem to everyone at Deer Hook High –1 point for harboring secret jealousy of her best friends who are allowed to date like normal teenagers 2 points for never drinking an alcoholic beverage –10 points for obsessing about Asher Richel.
