10 Things I Hate about Pinky

Bookseller Recommendation

If you enjoyed When Dimple Met Rishi, then you’ll love 10 Things I Hate about Pinky.

“This companion novel to When Dimple Met Rishi and There’s Something About Sweetie, follows Pinky Kumar, a proud Social Justice Warrior who loves making her parents cringe by dating ‘delinquents’ and Samir Jha who lives every day according to his regimented lists. 10 Things is what happens when you combine rigid rules with chaotic spontaneity, possums with a fear of wild animals, and enemies-to-lovers with fake dating set to the background of saving a butterfly habitat. Menon subverts expectations at every turn and will have you fall in love over and over; break your heart when you least expect it; and piece it back together as softly as butterfly wings. Unbelievably compassionate towards young people figuring out their identities and the parents trying to guide them, this comedy of errors will have you cracking up, tearing up, and yelling at the characters in horror and delight.”

The delightful follow-up to When Dimple Met Rishi and There’s Something about Sweetie, which follows Ashish’s friends Pinky and Samir as they pretend to date in order to achieve their individual goals, to disastrous and hilarious results.

Pinky Kumar wears the social justice warrior badge with pride. From raccoon hospitals to persecuted rock stars, no cause is too esoteric for her to champion. But a teeny tiny part of her also really enjoys making her conservative, buttoned-up corporate lawyer parents cringe.

Samir Jha might have a few…quirks remaining from the time he had to take care of his sick mother, like the endless lists he makes in his planner and the way he schedules every minute of every day, but those are good things. They make life predictable and steady.

Pinky loves lazy summers at her parents’ Cape Cod lake house, but after listening to them harangue her about the poor decisions she’s made (a.k.a. boyfriends she’s had), she hatches a plan. Get her sorta-friend-sorta-enemy—who is a total Harvard-bound Mama’s boy—to pose as her perfect boyfriend for the summer.

When Samir’s internship falls through, leaving him with an unplanned summer, he gets a text from Pinky asking if he’ll be her fake boyfriend in exchange for a new internship. He jumps at the opportunity; Pinky’s a weirdo, but he can survive a summer with her if there’s light at the end of the tunnel.

As they bicker their way through lighthouses and butterfly habitats, sparks fly, and they both realize this will be a summer they'll never forget.
