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?
