Gr 5-7-In this sequel to Bindi Babes (Delacorte, 2004), Geena, Amber, and Jazz come to the aid of a former Bollywood star who's fallen on hard times. The sisters are hoping that Molly Mahal will liven up their school's upcoming fundraising event, but they underestimate the turmoil she will cause when they offer to let her stay in their house for an indeterminate time. All of the males in the novel fall under Molly's spell, including the girls' widowed father and their teacher; but the sisters and their aunt are obliged to wait on the self-absorbed diva hand and foot, and it is unclear whether she has any intention of helping with the school's economic crisis. Dhami's pacing and scene-setting are more cinematic than novelistic; there is little differentiation among the sisters, leaving readers unfamiliar with the previous book confused, and the setting is equally sketchy. While fans of the first title may enjoy this book, it is not a first purchase.-Miriam Lang Budin, Chappaqua Public Library, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Series fans will delight in new episodes for reading through the long winter's nights. Bollywood Babes by Narinder Dhami picks up where last year's Bindi Babes left off, with the Dhillon sisters-Amber, Geena and Jazz-welcoming a has-been movie star from India into their home.
