My So-Called Bollywood Life, by Nisha Sharma

Bollywood meets Hollywood in this hilarious and lovelorn sendup of classic rom-com Only You. Winnie Mehta’s family psychic—because, yup, that’s a thing—has forever told her she would meet the love of her life before she turned eighteen, that his name would start with an R, and that he would give her a bracelet. So of course, Raj is the one, right? Except they broke up. Which foils everything. And when she meets fellow film geek Dev, well, he so does not fit the prophecy. Can Winnie learn to let go of what she believed and take her fate into her own hands? And, more importantly, will she get her perfect Bollywood ending?
Read about another entry on the list.

My So-Called Bollywood Life is also among Charaipotra's eleven top YA books featuring South Asian characters.
