Overview: Born Confused

Dimple Lala doesn't know what to think. She's spent her whole life resisting her parents' traditions. But now she's turning seventeen and everything is more complicated than it's ever been. Her best friend isn't around the way she used to be (blame the boyfriend), and Dimple's still recovering from a year-old break-up. Then, to make matters worse, her parents arrange for her to meet a `suitable boy'??? Of course it doesn't go well. Until a few weeks later when Dimple goes to New York from New Jersey and sees him as he really is??"someone who can move a club full of people with his amazing mix of music, and someone who might just understand her confusions. Suddenly the suitable boy no longer seems so unsuitable. Born Confused is a stunning debut from a talented new author about finding yourself, your friends and, above all, love??"sometimes where you least expect it. Funny and lyrical, you won't want this book to end.

     A Wonderful Journey of Self-Realization 7 May, 2013 On
    I read Born Confused by Tanuja Desai Hidier when I was 17 years old. With a 17-year old heroine Dimple, I could easily relate to her views on the pains of growing up, confused identities, realizing ones’ dreams and falling in love. Dimple is a second generation American-India or, as she calls herself, an ABCD (American Born Confused Desi). Hidier’s visually rich descriptions of food, India, Dimple’s parents' meeting, New York parties, religious beliefs, tattoos, heartbreaks and friendship are delightful. There was one particular scene that I did not like, which I felt should not be included, which is when Dimple and her friends use drugs (one star less for this aspect!!!!). I absolutely loved every other aspect of this novel and have enjoyed re-reading this novel several times over the years.
