“The arranged marriage YA rom-com we’ve been waiting for.” Bustle Magazine

Sandhya Menon is the author of the New York Times bestselling young adult novel, When Dimple Met Rishi.  She was born and raised in India on a steady diet of Bollywood movies and street food. She blames this upbringing for her obsession with happily-ever-afters, bad dance moves, and pani puri. Now she lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado, where she’s on a mission to have her husband and children watch all 3,220 Bollywood movies she claims as her favorite.

WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI is a romantic comedy about two young people who fall for each other in spite of themselves.  Dimple Shah is funny, whip-smart, and ambitious, and the last thing on her mind is marriage. She’s going to Stanford University in the fall and is focused on how to convince her parents to let her go to a summer coding and app development program. Rishi Patel is a sweet and considerate young man who is on his way to MIT in pursuit of a computer science and engineering degree (though his true passion lies with drawing comics—which his parents consider merely a passing hobby). Rishi has faith in the Indian tradition of arranged marriage and believes that compatibility and stability equal long-term happiness. His grandparents helped his parents find their soulmates in each other, so why shouldn’t this work for him, too? Dimple’s and Rishi’s parents have already determined that they are a perfect match, but their first encounter is anything but a “meet cute,” as Dimple is determined to have nothing to do with the Ideal Indian Husband her parents have planned for her. Hilarious and heartwarming madcap antics ensue, with kismet proving that the heart wants what the heart wants.
