    2 1/2 stars maybe, but then it wasn't really my type. A bit shallow, but the plot did get slightly more involved as the story progressed. Not fine literature, by any means, but fun.

    In keeping with my inability to start most series at the beginning, I read the third book, Bhangra Babes by Narinder Dhami first. Auntie is still living at home to provide a female touch since their mother died. The problem is, they'd really like to get Auntie out of the house.Fortunately though, Auntie has gotten engaged. In six weeks the wedding will be over and life will be back to normal. In the meantime though, they have to survive through Auntie's crazy wedding planning while they'd rather concentrate on the new cute boy a their school.As it's set in England and is narrated by a teenage girl (Amber) it gives a cursory first impression of being another Georgia Nicholson, except with an Indian family. While it's true that Amber shares certain passions with Georgia (boys and making strange plans) she's not as broadly a comedic character. Part of Amber's grounding as a more believable character is her strong family connection and her two sisters who are closer in age than Georgia and Libby are. Also Amber and her family are part of a larger community so that Amber's story isn't just about her antics as school.Coming into a series in the final book did leave me a little confused at times. I took me a while to keep Amber and her other two sisters apart and to follow along with Auntie's gossip. I've since read the second book, Bollywood Babes and I plan to go read the first book, Bindi Babes. After that I might come back and give Bhangra Babes a quick re-read.That said, I did ultimately enjoy the book. I recommend you start at the beginning if you can.

    I thought this was a good book. It is about three sisters who are excited about their auntie getting married, but there are a few obstacles in the way and the sisters are competing for one boy whom they all have a crush on. The author shows the culture of the characters by their names, traditions, and beliefs. I got of got confused about where the setting was because she'd switch between being in India and being in England. The characters are as realistic as it can get.In the past books I've read, most of the characters were rich people who lived in the Upper East Side in some mansion and loved to shoe off and to brag. In this book they aren't rich, but they also aren't poor and the characters don't really show off, but they do brag about what their crush, Rocky, says about them. In my opinion, the only wise character in the book is Kim. She is smart and is correct about almost everything. She tries to warn the other characters about something, but they refuse listen. The other characters have some kind of attitude and are often stubborn, but their stubbornness adds on to the drama that happens in the story. I liked this book and I thought it was alright.

    This last book in Dhami's trilogy about the Dhillon sisters who are just as funny and up the same crazy antics as in the previous books. In this addition the girls have finally gotten their Auntie engaged and have to help get ready for her wedding. This is a new year and the girl meet some new kids that have moved to the school. One is an angelic boy who they decide has to want one of them so, they bet on who he will end up liking. Then you have a girl that doesnt quit hit it off with the girls but Mr. Arora wants them to befriend her and help her get friends. Then to top it all off you have the totally obnoxious George Botley who now is disturbingly hot. There is also a very annoying Auntie on Mr. Arora's side of the family who is trying to take over the wedding. All these things call for one very humorous ride. I just had a very good time reading these books and I think if your are looking for something light and funny you should check out theses books.

    This last entry in Dhami's trilogy about the Dhillon sisters sees them being just as funny, & having just as much trouble (often caused by themselves) as the prior two books. Auntie is finally engaged to marry Amber's dreamy teacher, Mr. Arora, but has run into problems with his own interfering auntie. In the meantime, the sisters are in the midst of a competition to see who can snag the attentions of the very good-looking new boy, Rocky Gill, & trying to avoid an obnoxious new girl whom Mr. Arora has asked them to look out for. Will they get everything worked out in time for the wedding? And are they as relieved to get rid of their Auntie as they thought they would be? And why is the formerly incredibly annoying George Botley looking so disturbingly fit this year? A light, fun read for middle-grade girls.

    This is the third book in the BABES trilogy. It's about the three sisters, Amber, Jazz, and Geeta but this time their aunt (who came to take care of them and their father after their mother died) is getting married off to their teacher Mr. Arora. They've been trying to get rid of her ever since she came and now that she's leaving, they have seconds thoughts about if they will be happy. At the same time, there is a new girl at school (who wasn't really friendly). Amber needs to befriend her because she's new. Amber also starts liking a boy (who likes to rap) and he wants to perform at her aunt's wedding. This was a nice ending to the set of books about the three sisters because ever since the beginning, they have been trying to get rid of their aunt and they finally do with bittersweet feeligns.

    This is the final book in the Babes trilogy. Now that sister's Amber, Jazz and Geena have gotten used to their aunt, she's getting married. The family prepares for the wedding and the sisters make a bet, to catch the eye of Rocky, a new student. This time a few of Amber's ideas workout. Though she may have gone too far by agreeing to let Rocky play at the reception without telling auntie or hearing him play.This one was just as fun as the first two. It's not easy finding fun well written tween chick lit. And its pretty much impossible to find such books with characters of color. There's really nothing left for me to say, except I wish more were coming out. I highly recommend reading in order. Bindi Babes is first.

    Another cute addition to Geena, Amber, and Jazz's story. This time their Auntie is preparing to marry their gorgeous teacher, Mr. Arora, but as usual, Amber meddles in a way that causes problems, but of course, everything turns out fine in the end.Technical notes: the formatting issues in .epub version of the previous book (paragraph breaks in the middle of sentences and what I assume are missing section break markers as the action occasionally jumped forward in time between paragraphs in a way that made no sense without section markers) are just as bad, if not worse, than in this one, plus there were several strange typos or scanning mistakes near the beginning where symbols, such as < were used in place of letters.

    Continuing in my somewhat embarrassing quest to read this series, I bought and finished the ebook today. This was definitely worse than the previous two entries. All three sisters are quite annoying for the first 75% of the book, especially Amber, the main character. Auntie is around, but only as a background character. Kim has a bigger role here, and is fun to read, but also highlights that Amber is a pretty awful friend. On the bright side, thing get better near the end, and the last few chapters are almost heartwarming. On a technical note, this ebook also had some formatting errors.There is a fourth book, but I can't find an ebook copy, so I may have to order a physical one.

    Well, I had to read all of the books, right? I liked this one best of the three books. But isn't that backwards? Shouldn't you like the first book best and continue on in the series? I think it has to do with having more facets to the main characters--though they did some stupid stuff that no one in real life would actually do!

    Total waste of time, I had picked this book since it comes from teh writer of Bend it like Beckham!! The only good things that can sbe said is that I didnt spend more than 1.5 hrs on it.Story of 3 Indian school girls (sisters) in UK. To be honest there is no story at all.My advise don't bother with this book

    I really like this book because it talked about Indian culture and because it has a lot of morals and values that everyone can learn. You can really see what happens when you get spoiled too much. I always tell myself that to much of something is not good, when you think about it it's true.

    I was really looking forward to reading this book because the author, Narinder Dhami, also wrote Bend it Like Bekham, which was turned into a hit movie.
