Imaginary Men by Anjali Banerjee

Imaginary Men by Anjali Banerjee
Chick Lit

Lina is feeling the pressure to get married when she returns to India for her younger sister's wedding. All of her relatives are asking her if she has found a man, and the pressure gets to be so great that Lina lies and says that she is engaged to a mystery man from America. When the family wants to meet this man, Lina of course knows she needs to find a man and quick! Yet she only need look in her own backyard to find her true love!
This book was cute and it was interesting to get the view of an Indian-American as the main character. Although I'm sure the pressure for marriage in India can become quite great, I also know that ingrain on their children to respect elders, so would this situation even ever occur in India? Nevertheless, what ensues is a fun look at an Indian dating in America. This was a quick read and it wasn't disappointing.
