I am morbidly obese and have steadily worked at losing weight. I had a nutritionalist (who wasn't covered under my insurance and I was paying out of pocket) tell me IF I was being honest in my food journal that I should be losing weight. I obeyed the rules....just didn't have the code. My weight is finally going down after years - YEARS- of obesity.

I enjoyed this very much. I loved the unique (to me) setting with the Indi/Hindi theme. I thought the 18 year old heroine is believable but thinks more maturely than her years. I would recommend this book for an enjoyable young adult romantic adventure. The narrator has a beautiful voice and wonderful inflection. She really made the story for me. I thought it was read a bit slowly and needed to be played at 1.25.
