Our life is very different compared to the the other side of the world. India has culture differences, as well as some similarities. They deal with peer pressure, and their self image, what every teenage girl is going through. To make things harder, fifteen year old Veena Solomon is attending a Catholic school, following in her mothers beliefs. As well as having a different accent amongst her peers, and being the star in Romeo and Juliet.
I found Bra's Boys and Blunders to be very enlightening. I enjoyed reading through the eyes of an Indian Teenager, I found a lot of similarities that many teenagers go through. Veena and her mother are struggling to keep a mother daughter relationship.
Veena is a great character who can inspire many different teenagers with a variety of issues. She handles each issue with more grace and responsibility, compared to other teenagers. I thought this was a great book worthy of 5/5. Although, I did find that the ending finished very quickly. It felt like there was just a bit more needed, to close up the book.
