Books: Charlotte Graham on YA fiction

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:09 pm on 6 June 2017

Charlotte Graham reviews two rom-coms for young adult readers in modern times. When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon tells the story of two Indian-American teenagers who get to know each other at a summer coding school. And in When Michael Met Mina by Randa Abdel-Fattah, two Sydney high school students meet on opposing sides of a protest about refugees. Both books address culture, class and gender politics as obstacles to falling in love.
