Can you find love when you think you already have it?

Perfect for fans of When Dimple Met Rishi, Lovetorn is a fun, romantic own voices story that proves that even if you think your destiny has already been chosen, your heart always makes its own choices.

Shalini is new to L.A. Not new like from New York City new—or even Kansas new. New like from India new.

And in the U.S., she has it all wrong: the way she dresses, the way she talks, the way she wears her hair. And then there is the ring, which makes her way different from everyone else—because Shalini has been engaged since she was three to Vikram, back in India.

Shalini’s life has been turned upside down. She doesn’t fit in, her mom is depressed, and email is no substitute for being with Vikram.

But when she meets Toby at school, Shalini’s heart gets turned upside down, too. Just looking at Toby makes her stomach flutter. She thinks she loves Vikram, but he never made her feel like this.

The author had a great idea: what would happen if as teenage girl moved from India to L.A? What if she had a fiancé, chosen by her father? What if she actually loved her fiancé?
However, the author went wrong when the girl won over the mean kids by being a good student and made friends by doing charity work.

When I received this book from the publisher I thought to myself that I really loved the cover. I am a sucker for what the cover looks like. I know you are not supposed to judge a book by it's cover, but I do. I loved the design on the side of the book. I was interested in knowing more. I had to know more.

You meet Shalini. She and her family are moving to L.A. from India. All she has known is India. She doesn't know what people do here, she doesn't know what they wear, or even where they buy their groceries. So when her family gets to the states it is a real experience. So she goes to the local high school, but she is having a hard fitting in. People don't like her because she is different. She is having a hard time meeting friends and just being a normal teenager. Which is very sad because I have some of my best memories in high school. I met some of my best friends there(which I am still friends with), and I met my husband there(yes we are high school sweethearts). High school was awesome....most of the time. :)

While there she meets this guy Toby. Toby is in the school orchestra, he is popular, and not to mention extremely good looking. So she develops a major crush on him. But there is one thing holding her back. Her boyfriend that is still in India. Yeah that is defiantly a problem. So she is torn between to guys that she is madly and deeply crushing over. How awesome does this book seem????

At first I didn't know how I would feel about this book. I thought it was just another contemporary novel to go along with the many others. Boy was I wrong. This book showed a girl not only dealing with the issues that she is facing. But it also showed the issues that her family was dealing with as a whole. Sometimes books don't do that. And I really liked that this one did. To me it kind of made the book stand out even more. This will defiantly be a book that I would recommend to someone that want a really great easy read.

Thank you Kavita Daswani for such an awesome and heart felt book. You are amazing. This book had everything it needed, love, sadness, and adventure all in one!

My Thoughts: When I first heard about Lovetorn, I honestly didn't know if it would interest me or not. It didn't sound like anything I had read before but it was also about a culture I didn't know much about.

But hey it's published by HarperTeen and you can't go wrong with that, right? Did I hear you agree? Yes?

We are introduced to Shalini who has just moved to the United States from India with her father, mother, and little sister. Shalini isn't used to living with only three people. Back at home, she lived with almost 40 people. There was always someone around doing dishes, chatting, or just in the background making noise. This is so different from what she is used too.

Shalini starts a new school and right away realizes she doesn't fit in. The way she talks, the way she dresses, the way she acts isn't like these American girls. She feels like an outcast. Not only that but her sister is adapting really well and that tugs at Shalini a little bit. She wants to fit in. She wants to feel like she belongs.

Shalini also misses her fiance Vikram. She's been engaged to him since she was 3. How is she going to spend 2 years away from him? This seems impossible.

In time, Shalini makes a new friend Renuka who helps her realize there is more to life than what other people think of you. Shalini starts to be her own person and stops caring what others thinks. She gets involved in a charity project and really helps out. She feels useful. She starts to feel good about herself again.

She only wishes her home life was that great. Her mother is taking a fall. She's depressed. She misses India, she's not herself. She gets put on medication, sees a therapist, nothing helps.

Shalini doesn't know what to do and tries to cope with things day to day.

She also meets a boy. He's a talented flute player and helps with the charity event. She starts to develop feelings for him and starts to question her relationship with Vikram.

Need I say more? Read the book now.

Overall: Honestly, I was a little hesitate going into this book not knowing if I would like it or understand it. Yes, there is a lot of Indian lingo, but I understood it perfectly. It all flowed just right. I really liked reading about Shalini's traditions and I liked reading more of her story. I wasn't sure which boy I wanted her to end up with but this was a realistic novel. No vampires, fairies, or werewolves. Just plain old simple boys. They weren't perfect, they weren't fighting over her, they were real.

I really enjoyed reading Lovetorn. Family was the most important focus in this book, with some relationships thrown into the mix. Culture also came into play. Lovetorn was just what I was in the mood for and if you like these type of books, you won't be disappointed.

Cover: Really like it. It fits. They also don't have completely white skin so its realistic. We also can't see their faces which I like so I can imagine them to look the way I want.

What I'd Give It: 4/5 Cupcakes
