SUMMARY: 


Aspiring filmmaker and wallflower Twinkle Mehra has stories she wants to tell and universes she wants to explore, if only the world would listen. So when fellow film geek Sahil Roy approaches her to direct a movie for the upcoming Summer Festival, Twinkle is all over it. The chance to publicly showcase her voice as a director? Dream come true. The fact that it gets her closer to her longtime crush, Neil Roy—a.k.a. Sahil’s twin brother? Dream come true x 2.

When mystery man “N” begins emailing her, Twinkle is sure it’s Neil, finally ready to begin their happily-ever-after. The only slightly inconvenient problem is that, in the course of movie-making, she’s fallen madly in love with the irresistibly adorkable Sahil.

Twinkle soon realizes that resistance is futile: The romance she’s got is not the one she’s scripted. But will it be enough?

Told through the letters Twinkle writes to her favorite female filmmakers, From Twinkle, with Love navigates big truths about friendship, family, and the unexpected places love can find you.

MY REVIEW

Sandhya Menon writes real girls, complex with hopes, dreams, flaws and personalities that are so damn relatable.

From Twinkle, with Love follows the story of Twinkle a girl who feels ignored by her family, and friends. Twinkle just recently loss her best friends Maddie to the popular crowd. A crowd that is made up of rich kids something Twinkle is not. She feels like she is never going to fit in unless she dates Neil. She think that if someone like Neil wants to hang out with her , then she can get her best friend back. Thus, when Sahil Roy, Neil’s twin brother offers to work together she accepts with hopes it would help her get closer to her crush.

Sandhya Menon books are hilarious and make me cringe in the best way. They bring me back to high school. When crushes were your world and everything felt like life or dead. Her characters are way braver than I was in high school, let me tell you that.

This book really related to me because I went to private school where some kids were way richer than me, so I know what is like and I felt Twinkle's pain like my own.

Menon creates a really needed diversity. She creates POC girls who are three dimensional. Which is necessary in today’s literature. We need to show the world, us POC girls are more than maids, or comedy relief. We are deserving of our own story.

Twinkle was so relatable. She is very quirky and fun. Sahil has a very charming personality a quality all boys in Menon’s book have. Perfect book boyfriend material.

I feel like is necessary that Sandhya Menon tell us if this boys she keeps writing about, sweet, charming, caring, dedicated and honest are real and if they are where can I order one?

The only criticism I have is that sometimes the story is a little predictable, but nevertheless I enjoyed this book immensely .

The story is told in emails, text messages, letters from Twinkle to famous film makers. Which made the book a very easy and quick read. I read in one sitting because I couldn’t stop!

Overall I have to say From Twinkle, with Love was a fun time. I would completely recommend taking this book as your beach read or read it during summer in your backyard or pool.
