Excellent follow up to Bindi Babes. A series middle and high school students will love!

I had high hopes for this book because I'm fascinated by Bollywood and it sounded like a really fun premise. Unfortunately, the characters didn't seem very real, not much depth to anyone, and there wasn't anything much at stake. They skipped through time so quickly and I didn't get a sense of anything "big" on the line. I was kind of disappointed there wasn't more to the story. I'm left puzzled by the change in "Dad," I still am not sure if the three main characters are actually sisters (since ...more

Bollywood Babes by Narinder Dhami is the second in a trilogy that I'm reading backwards. It didn't mean to do it that way but that's how it worked out. I still need to read the first of the series, Bindi Babes.

In this middle volume, the three sisters have been roped into helping plan a fundraiser for their school by their well meaning but sometimes smothering Auntie. A chance meeting with former Bollywood starlet Molly Mahal gives them the inspiration they need; they'll make her the star attract
Narrated by Nina Wadia. Amber Dhillon and her sisters track down former Bollywood star Molly Mahal, hoping she will accept their invitation to appear at their school's Bollywood themed fundraiser party. They discover her in a less than superstar condition, living in a dingy flat and about to be evicted. Amber decides they should take Molly home with them until she gets back on her feet. Soon the community hears about Molly and everyone beats a path to the Dhillon home. Worse, Molly proves to be ...more

I reread the first book yesterday, discovered there were sequels, and finished this one today. My review from the previous entry stands; there's nothing groundbreaking here, but it's a light, enjoyable read. Auntie is even sassier, and she's no longer presented as a villain, which is nice. The three sisters remain somewhat boring (and really unintelligent). Hopefully this changes in the next entry, because I definitely intend to read it! Overall, this book is neither better, nor worse than the ...more

I didn't really like this book because even though it takes place in a character's life, it would never happen in real life to anyone. The 3 sisters Amber, Geena, and Jazz didn't want their annoying aunt in their lives in the 1st book and now she is helping out a fund raiser at their school. They get excited to be able to have a bollywood actress to help (at a school fun raising party). But this actress ends up being broke and wants to be treated as a star when she stays with the sisters, which ...more
The Dhillon sisters are back, with another situation they have to take care of somehow - sister Amber has invited a down-and-out former Bollywood movie star to live with them in hopes that she will be the guest of honor at her school's fundraising party, & she's turned into one unpleasant houseguest. A fun read about three Anglo-Indian girls & their tightly knit community that any girl can relate to & enjoy.

This book continues the story of Geena, Amber, and Jazz. This time, Amber has the brilliant idea to invite a former Bollywood star who happens to live near them to come to their school's Bollywood fundraiser party, but end up taking (the rather annoying) Molly Mahal into their home. The plot is a bit unrealistic, but it was still a pretty cute book.

Technical notes: I am reading the epub version, and there are some strange paragraph breaks in the middle of sentences.

Geena, Jazz, and Amber are just getting used to living with their nosy Auntie. When Auntie plans to throw an all out Bollywood party for the school fundraiser, Amber once again comes up with a crazy plan which involves a retired Bollywood star who embodies the very meaning of the word "diva."
Good continuation of the series, very entertaining, my only complaint would be that the story perhaps could have been more original. Main characters trying to get rid of an annoying woman staying with them? Soooort of similar to the last book. Still a great series though, and a really fun re-read.

This was okay - a story of 3 teenage Indian (as in, from India) sisters who end up with a somewhat washed up Bollywood film star living in their home. Many mix-ups ensue. It moves fairly fast, but wasn't amazing. For grades 5-7 probably.

This is the sequel to the first story in Tina Topper 66. I always liked to collect them, even though the stories weren't always that good.
They are still a quick and nice read for children around age 10-12.

Very cute story! It's great to see sisters sticking together, even if it is for selfish reasons. Would recommend it to YA girls on the younger side to read.

This was ok, not really fantastic. I thought the author's first book featuring these characters was much stronger.

I found this one more readable than the first book in the series. The plot was ten times more far-fetched, but somehow the maturation of the main characters helped a lot.
