From Twinkle, with Love
From the author When Dimple Met Rishi, a new YA novel about friends, young love, and filmmaking. Sixteen-year-old Twinkle wants to fight the patriarchy through her art. She dreams of becoming a successful filmmaker one day, and much of the story is told through her diary-style letters to famous filmmakers. But for now, she’s dealing with typical teenage problems: her BFF’s newfound popularity has put their relationship seriously on the rocks, the boy she’s crushing on doesn’t know she exists, and her cute co-creator of a movie for the Midsummer Arts Festival has her feeling confused about everything. Sweet and relatable, with characters you can root for. Publisher recommends for ages 12+.
An aspiring teen filmmaker finds her voice and falls in love in this delightful romantic comedy from the New York Times best-selling author of When Dimple Met Rishi.
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 – aka 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 moviemaking, 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.
