  • Christina Taylor

    I highly recommend this graphic novel. Its heartwarming navigation of the quotidien terrain of maturation, the hardship of self-discovery, and the adolescent tendency to rail against the confines of familial authority are couched in an exotic context and, thereby, acknowledge the additional layer of complexity born from juggling two cultures and two worlds while emphasizing the universal plight of growing up. Readers would like this book if they like Realistic Ficiton, Low Fantasy, or Magical Re ...more

    This was a beautifully illustrated middle grade graphic novel! I loved learning about Indian culture, new words in Hindi, and the magical realism. That being said, I felt like the actual story was a bit weak and disjointed. Wasn't a waste of time, but felt like the plot could have been better executed, as well as the characters.

    Author Nidhi Chanani, was born in India, and raised in Southern California. This

    gorgeously Illustrated graphic novel had to be - must have been - somewhat inspired by her own memories ( at least at one point in her developmental growing years), a search for her own cultural identity.

    Her artwork is so stunning ( first black and white - then moves into incredible colorful colors) - that I actually just flipped through this lovely 5 by 7 size silky paper book looking at the drawings - before settl

    Pro-voiced Review:

    Priyanka feels out of place. She lives with her mother in the United States, and has never been to India, where her mother lived before Priya’s birth. Her uncle has been an important figure in her life, but when he announces that he and his wife are about to have a baby, Priya is forced to confront her heritage and insecurities in a new way. Then, she discovers a pashmina which seems to have magical properties. Chanani’s debut graphic novel is accessibly illustrated in muted to

    Not too long ago I received mystery package in the mail and inside that package was Pashmina, a beautiful graphic novel about an Indian-American girl who desperately wants to know more about the country her mother is from. I wasn't sure what to expect when I opened it and I will totally admit this is not a book I would usually pick up, but I am so glad Pashmina found its way to my doorstep!

    Priyanka is an incredibly relatable main character. She wants t

  • Lola  Reviewer

    A graphic novel with an Indian American teenager who wants to know more about her country, family and culture? The day I say no to diverse stories will never, ever come.

    Priyanka lives in the US with her mom who left India when she was her age. Priyanka knows little about India, and when her mom does tell her about the life girls live there and how they have less choices than in the US, Priyanka thinks she’s exaggerating.

    Ms. Chanani created a realistic teenage heroine other teenagers will under

    A great graphic novel about finding your cultural identity and what it’s like to have roots in another country while growing up in America. I would have liked a bit of a deeper dive on a lot of the topics, but a good surface level introduction to this type of memoir.
