Waiting on Wednesday: You Bring the Distant Near by Mitali Perkins

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. This meme spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

You Bring the Distant Near
Mitali Perkins
Expected Publication: September 12, 2017
Genre: YA Contemporary
This elegant young adult novel captures the immigrant experience for one Indian-American family with humor and heart. Told in alternating teen voices across three generations, You Bring the Distant Near explores sisterhood, first loves, friendship, and the inheritance of culture--for better or worse.

From a grandmother worried that her children are losing their Indian identity to a daughter wrapped up in a forbidden biracial love affair to a granddaughter social-activist fighting to preserve Bengali tigers, Perkins weaves together the threads of a family growing into an American identity.

Here is a sweeping story of five women at once intimately relatable and yet entirely new.
This will be an interesting read. Will it be serious? Will the book go on a fun, comedic route, ala My Big Fat Greek Wedding or Fresh of the Boat?  Or a combination of the two?
