So, I started a list on Goodreads called The Canon of Jewish/Indian Books (title is pretty self-explanatory, I think.) Would love if y’all could add to it. I came up with 5, which hardly qualifies as a canon. I bet there are a lot more.

I think MBBM is my favourite Children’s Book I read this year. I loved it because it asked important questions about what it means to be someone coming from two different ethnic backgrounds (the main character is Indian-Jewish). It also tackled topics like race, diversity and religion in a very effective and subtle manner. Overall it was a fantastic story that made me laugh and tear up at the same time :).
