Name: The Girls in Pants series
Genre: Teen fiction
Story Outline: It revolves around four girls - Bridget, Lena, Carmen & Tibby - & how a pair of jeans changes their lives forever
Why do you recommend it: Because it's real, its not one of those very unreal high school fictions
Other comment: I'm not sure it's available in India, though
Rating(scale of 1-5, 5 being the best): 3.5 (but thats probably 'coz i want to be a book reviewer, they don't really go around giving every book a 5 )
Name: Three Girls in the city series
Genre: Teen fiction
Story Outline: It's about three girls living in New York who take photography classes together.

Other comment: It's absolutely awesome, do read it, even if you're not much of a photographer

Genre: Political Drama
Author: Salman Rushdie
Storyline:Roughly speaking, Shame is a novel about Pakistan and about the people who ruled Pakistan. One of the main aims of the novel is to portray the lives of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and General Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq and their relationship. The more central theme is the violence that is born out of shame. There are characters that actually 'stand' for 'shame' and 'shamelessness' ó Sufiya Zinobia and Omar Khayym respectively. There is magical realism and there is the usual magical writing that characterises Rushdie's novels.
THIS BLURB MAY SEEM DRY, BUT THE STORY TAKES PLACE IN PAKISTAN I CAN ASSERT THAT THE PLOT IS DAMN GOOD,THERE ARE CONSPIRACY THEORY'S, AFFAIRS, WEDDINGS, LOVE TRAINGLES, FILM INDUSTRY AND MUCH MORE! IT CONTAINS SO MANY VIBRANT ELEMENTS OFA RICH POOR AND MIDDLE CLASS WITH RESPECT TO PAKISTAN, WHICH MAKES IT ALL THE MORE INTRIGUING AND AWESOME
I WOULD RATE IT 10/10
