From Twinkle, With Love
By Sandhya Menon
Will Twinkle Mehra - teenage girl, aspiring director and totally invisible - get the romance she has scripted? A laugh-out-loud, heart-warming YA read that fans of Rainbow Rowell, Nicola Yoon and Jenny Han will fall in love with.
Menon is a bright new talent' Bustle
The next heartwarming YA romcom from Sandhya Menon, bestselling author of When Dimple Met Rishi.
Aspiring filmmaker and wallflower Twinkle Mehra has stories to tell and universes to explore - if only the world would listen. So when nerdy classmate and fellow film-obsessive Sahil Roy approaches her to direct a film for the upcoming Summer Festival, Twinkle can't wait.
The chance to showcase her artistic voice? Dream come true.
The opportunity to get closer to longtime crush, Neil Roy-aka Sahil's twin brother? Dream come even truer.
When Twinkle receives an email from a secret admirer - the mysterious 'N' - she is sure it's Neil, finally ready for their happy ending.
The only problem is that, in the course of their movie-making, she has found herself falling for Sahil - the wrong brother.
Twinkle soon realises that resistance is futile: the romance she's got isn't the one she scripted...
But will it be enough?

Sandhya Menon 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. Now she lives in Colorado, where she's on a mission to (gently) coerce her family to watch all 3,220 Bollywood movies she claims as her favourite. Visit her online at sandhyamenon.com.
