TAB Presents: Sandhya Menon and Kiley Roache
Hicklebee's own Teen Advisory Board (TAB) invites you to meet the authors!
Sandhya Menon and Kiley Roache
Sandhya Menon Sandhya Menon is the New York Times bestselling author of the smash-hit When Dimple Met Rishi. She was born and raised in India on a steady diet of Bollywood movies and street food, and blames this upbringing for her obsession with happily-ever-afters, bad dance moves, and pani puri.
Kiley Roache is a student at Stanford University. She has worked as a reporter for the Chicago Tribune’s teen publication The Mash and the San Francisco Chronicle’s SFGATE. She has blogged at Huffington Post Teen. She enjoys reading, writing and Dunkin' Donuts coffee. Some days she wants to change the world, others she just wants to talk about boy bands.
Come join the conversation at Hicklebees, as moterated by blogger and booklover Enna from Books, Boys and Blogs. Menon will be discussing her book From Twinkle with Love and Roache, her book Frat Girl.
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.
College life can be complicated--challenging, rewarding, downright frustrating--and a lot of fun. Warren University freshman Cassandra "Cassie" Davis is more than up for all of it. Which leaves Cassie facing the dreaded F-word... Fraternity--specifically Delta Tau Chi, a frat house on the verge of being banned from the school. Accused of offensive, sexist behavior, they have one year to clean up their act. With one shot at a scholarship to the school of her dreams, Cassie pitches an unusual research project--to pledge Delta Tau Chi, take on the boys' club and provide proof of their misogynistic behavior. It's different, but it's not against the rules, and she's pretty sure she knows exactly what to expect once she gets there. Which means the DTC brothers will have to face the dreaded F-word... Feminist--the type of girl who thinks they're nothing but tank-top-wearing "bros" and is determined to see them booted from the school. But Cassie soon realizes things aren't as simple as they appeared. Some of the DTC brothers, including her fellow pledge, Jordan Louis, are much more than she ever expected to find in a frat house. With her academic future on the line, and her heart all tangled in a web of her own making, Cassie will ultimately have to define for herself what the F-word is all about.
