Nina Soni is back and she’s so excited for her Dadi and cousin to visit from India! Will she be the perfect hostess? 

Nina’s grandmother is coming to visit, all the way from India. It’s hard, only getting to see her grandparents on carefully timed video calls, scheduled to manage that ten-and-a-half hour time difference. But now Dadi is going to stay for several weeks!

Nina can’t wait to see Dadi—but then it turns out that Montu, her annoying cousin, will also be coming. It’s challenging enough to manage her little sister, but Nina has gotten used to that, and even come to appreciate many of Kavita’s eccentricities. Still, it will be fun to introduce her extended family to life and friends in Wisconsin, and Nina is determined to become the perfect hostess. 

Find Nina Soni, Perfect Hostess this April at your local library, indie bookstore, or Barnes & Noble.
