Review: Typical teenage fantasy story with Indian culture twist.  13 yr old Abby Spencer has grown up with her Mother and Grandparents in the USA.  She wants to know who her father is and wants to meet him.  Through a twist of having an allergic reaction to coconut, her Mother contacts her old boyfriend, Abby’s father – who by now happens to be a Bollywood star.  THE Bollywood star.  Abby travels to India to meet him and he welcomes her into his lavish life with open arms. While visiting Abby learns about Indian culture.  Feel good tween read.
