From Twinkle, with Love by Sandhya Menon
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Reading about Twinkle is a little painful - at first she's one of those wryly observant/sarcastic teens, then she becomes very strident and angry - and the unrealistic ending where everything seems to be ok between her, her friends and her new boyfriend just felt off given the compressed time frame. Also unrealistic for me were the diary entries, where she writes to various famous female film directors and addresses them by their full name. Wouldn't you say "Dear Sofia" instead of "Dear Sofia Coppola" in your personal diary?
