    Book ¾ Pashmina PashminaA graphic novel with an Indian American teenager who wants to know about her country family and culture? The day I say no to diverse stories will never ever come Priyanka lives in the US with her mom who left India when she was her age Priyanka knows little about India and when her mom does tell her about the life girls live there and how they have less choices than in the US Priyanka thinks she’s exaggerating Ms Chanani created a realistic teenage heroine other teenagers will understand well and hopefully be able to connect with I enjoyed reading about her adventures and think her character development deserves recognition DefinitelyBut I must say Priyanka’s worst weakness is that she keeps most of her feelings inside

    Book ¾ Pashmina PashminaThis was a beautifully illustrated middle grade graphic novel I loved learning about Indian culture new words in Hindi and the magical realism That being said I felt like the actual story was a bit weak and disjointed Wasn't a waste of time but felt like the plot could have been better executed as well as the characters

    Book ¾ Pashmina PashminaPashmina is a strong girl character comics volume featuring an Indian American family that reminds because of the strong ethnic girl aspect of the Pakistani Muslim Kamala Khan aka Ms Marvel I wish the artwork of this debut graphic novel weren’t uite so cartoony and the story had to offer than culture clashes and a young aspiring to be a comics star as main character but I am glad to see diversity in comics for girls Glad to see Indian American culture represented in comics

    Book ¾ Pashmina PashminaThis was a sweet contemporary graphic novel about an Indian American teen wanting to learn about her heritage I thought the cartoonish art style worked really well to convey the coming of age themes and make it appeal to both middle grade and older readers There was some great commentary on identity and self discovery but ultimately it failed to really delve into these topics My biggest problem was the weak plotline Chanani’s attempt to touch upon sev

    Book ¾ Pashmina PashminaI think this is made for children than teenagers or young adults I really wanted to like the book but I found the art kind of weak the story disassembled and prosaic It needed work and details to build the characters fantasy issues from family to jealousy and bullying traditions and origins and so on it's all mentioned but it felt empty somehowThe story is about teenage Priyanka who lives with her single mom in California She wants to know who her father is she wants to hear stories about her family and India but her mom never speaks about any of it One day
