What a unique story and concept which I’ve never encountered in another novel before. This book was absolutely charming, with such a sweet ending. I loved following the lives of those in the Indian family, whom I found to be so lovable and cute. Ronen is really masterful at creating emotional atmospheres through his words, and developing interesting conversations between the characters. I found myself laughing, amused, and even gasping aloud at certain parts, just because I was so absorbed in th ...more

Insightful, beautiful, and adventurous. I think it’s been over a decade since I last read a novel (I prefer non-fiction and have little patience for most stories). I picked up this book because it seemed like I might learn something from it even though it is a fiction book. I was very taken in by the descriptiveness of the many tensions - young vs old, tradition vs modern, East vs West, male vs female, religious vs non- religious, wealthy vs poor. I felt like I learned a great deal from the pers ...more

I love how the author wrote a young adults book that is well written. The language is rich, still allow young adults to connect with the book, acknowledging their emotions and struggles with their parents. The plot is very interesting, there is love, self-search, and awareness, the complication of friendship with jealousy and love, acknowledging the challenges of being a teenager and how every choice we make can impact our lives and lives of others. I loved how the author is creating awareness t ...more

"Abby virtually" is a brilliantly written little book. I am no longer a "young adult" but the themes running through the stories are universal to all of us. Whether it is the gap of generations or the clash of a fast pace modern society vs a more traditional one, the chapters find an accurate balance to describe the ever increasing stress imposed upon us by the internet and social medias...i.e how do we define who we are in real life vs life on the world wide web?
I enjoyed discovering the well-

I truly enjoyed this book. Disclaimer: I know the author personally, which always makes me nervous....will I like it and if I don't, how will I review it? Well, there was no problem with this one, because it was so good, I kept forgetting who wrote it and just read out of pure interest. This fiction book is set in India and tells the story of a teenager and her sister, dealing with a very traditional father and their electronically-connected world. The plot of how Abby gets her name, makes money ...more

Cool story. I loved the journey Abhaya, the main character, goes through. Looks like teens everywhere go through a similar journey, doesn’t matter if you’re brought up in the West or the East. Any plans for a sequel? Would love to learn what happened with Abhaya after this story was over. Any plans for a sequel?…

Very relevant and relatable!

Interesting and engaging book. As a parent I can appreciate the struggle teenagers have these days, trying to bridge between progress, technology, and also navigate the social scene. The main character is a good role model. She is just like everyone else with strengths and weaknesses. I love her strong character. Very relatable.

What I loved most about this book is how engaging and relatable all the characters were - you find something of them in you and in so many others that you know and you really care about them. At the same time, they are all complex multidimensional figures who compete for your compassion while also being occasionally infuriating. One of my favorite characters is a guru whose silences appear profound but who may just have nothing to say. The story also brought me back to my own struggles to live u ...more
