My Sister's Big Fat Indian Wedding

Sajni Patel’s My Sister’s Big Fat Indian Wedding is a fresh, witty rom-com romp set against the backdrop of a high-profile music competition and a riotous Indian wedding.

“A vibrant and luscious celebration of the Indian culture. I couldn’t have enough of everything—the extravagant wedding, the gorgeous outfits, the food, and of course, Patel’s trademark strong female mains!” —Jesse Q. Sutanto, national bestselling author

Zurika Damani is a naturally gifted violinist with a particular love for hip-hop beats. But when you’re part of a big Indian family, everyone has expectations, and those certainly don’t include hip-hop violin. After being rejected by Juilliard, Zuri’s last hope is a contest judged by a panel of top-tier college scouts. The only problem? This coveted competition happens to take place during her sister’s extravagant wedding week. And Zuri has already been warned, repeatedly, that she is not to miss a single moment.

In the midst of the chaos, Zuri’s mom is in matchmaking mode with the groom’s South African cousin Naveen—who just happens to be a cocky vocalist set on stealing Zuri’s spotlight at the scouting competition. Luckily Zuri has a crew of loud and loyal female cousins cheering her on. Now, all she has to do is wow the judges for a top spot, evade getting caught by her parents, resist Naveen’s charms, and, oh yeah . . . not mess up her sister’s big fat Indian wedding. What could possibly go wrong?
