My So-Called Bollywood Life
Winnie Mehta was never really convinced that Raj was her soulmate, but their love was written in the stars. Literally, a pandit predicted Winnie would find the love of her life before her 18th birthday, and Raj
meets all of the qualifications. Which is why Winnie is shocked to return from her summer at film camp to find her boyfriend of three years hooking up with Jenny Dickens. Worse, Raj is crowned chair of the student film festival, a spot Winnie was counting on for her film school applications. As a self-proclaimed Bollywood expert, Winnie knows this is not how her perfect ending is scripted.
Then there’s Dev, a fellow film geek, and one of the few people Winnie can count on to help her reclaim control of her story. Dev is smart charming, and challenges Winnie to look beyond her horoscope to find someone she’d pick for herself. But does falling for Dev mean giving up on her prophecy, and her chance to live happily ever after? To find her perfect ending, Winnie will need a little bit of help from fate, family, and of course, a Bollywood movie star.
Like an expertly choreographed Bollywood dance scene, Nisha Sharma’s off-beat love story dazzles in the lime light.

“Sweet, sassy, and totally swoon-worthy! Winnie Mehta is laugh out loud funny, all the way! I could not put this book down — until the very last page! All is fair in love and Bollywood!
–Ellen Oh, author of THE PROPHECY series
“A rich tapestry of culture and tradition not often explored in young adult fiction, the true beauty of this book–apart from the laugh-out-loud humor–lies in the way it reveals the thread that connects us all: wanting to love and be loved on our own terms. Magnificent!”
–Nic Stone, NYT Bestselling author of DEAR MARTIN
“Fresh, feisty, and fun! Winnie Mehta navigates her So-Called Bollywood Life and the universal ups and downs of love, friendship, family relationships, and multicultures, with humor and heart (and hankerings for a hero, who she just might turn out to be herself)…discovering some surprising spaces where fate and faith intertwine along the way. Nisha Sharma’s debut is a holy baby Shah Rukh Khan delight.”
–Tanuja Desai Hidier, author of BORN CONFUSED and BOMBAY BLUES
“Full of heart, culture and laughter! This sparkling story left me smiling for days.”
