Publisher's summary

This elegant young adult novel captures the immigrant experience for one Indian American family with humor and heart. Told in alternating teen voices across three generations, You Bring the Distant Near explores sisterhood, first loves, friendship, and the inheritance of culture - for better or worse.

From a grandmother worried that her children are losing their Indian identity, to a daughter wrapped up in a forbidden biracial love affair, to a granddaughter social activist fighting to preserve Bengali tigers, Perkins weaves together the threads of a family growing into an American identity.

Here is a sweeping story of five women at once intimately relatable and yet entirely new.

Full cast:

  • Sneha Mathan as Narrator
  • Shivali Bhammer as Sonia
  • Priya Ayyar as Tara
  • N'Jameh Camara as Chantal
  • Zehra Jane Naqvi as Anna
