Reviews

"Bhathena has crafted a masterfully complex story filled with flawed characters and a titanium-strength love story. In The Beauty of the Moment, readers will fall in love, experience the heartbreak, and chase burgeoning hope to the end. A brilliant follow up to A Girl Like That." --Nisha Sharma, author of My So-Called Bollywood Life

"This dramatic romance, told from Susan and Malcolm's alternating viewpoints, authentically traces the teens' gradual changes as they come to terms with mistakes they've made and who they want to be." --Publishers Weekly

"[Susan and Malcolm's] struggles with expectations and traditions born in a faraway land will ring true for any reader with immigrant parents. . .A good recommendation for readers interested in romance." --Booklist

"Fans of Nicola Yoon's The Sun Is Also a Star will enjoy this bicultural romance. A strong purchase for most YA collections, especially where contemporary romance is in demand." --School Library Journal

"Bhathena masterfully discusses a host of those themes including cultural differences, complex family dynamics and self-discovery. The characters are strong, and their development is realistic and well paced; the tone and flow of dialogue go a long way to creating a lasting connection with the story. Best of all, no one theme overtakes the other, which allows readers to develop their own take on the story." --The Globe and Mail
