The Boat People
Sharon Bala’s debut novel The Boat People was a finalist for the 2018 Amazon.ca First Novel Award.

My So-Called Bollywood Life
This novel by Nisha Sharma is a hilarious take from a very filmi writer and will appeal to the desis who enjoy a slice of Bollywood every now and then. It follows high school senior, Vineeta “Winnie” Mehta, who is dumped by her classmate Raj. With the help of Shah Rukh Khan (yes, the King of hearts), who gives her life advice in her dreams, she finds her way to happiness.
In the era of the #MeToo movement comes a strong and though-provoking book sent in the United States. Vox follows a time where the population is silenced and women are only allowed to speak a hundred words per day. And this is just the beginning. So how does one use her 100 words to be heard?
