There's Something About Sweetie
Ashish Patel didn’t know love could be so…sucky. After he’s dumped by his ex-girlfriend, his mojo goes AWOL. Even worse, his parents are annoyingly, smugly confident they could find him a better match. So, in a moment of weakness, Ash challenges them to set him up.The Patels insist that Ashish date an Indian-American girl—under contract. Per subclause 1(a), he’ll be taking his date on “fun” excursions like visiting the Hindu temple and his eccentric Gita Auntie. Kill him now. How is this ever going to work?Sweetie Nair is many things: a formidable track athlete who can outrun most people in California, a loyal friend, a shower-singing champion. Oh, and she’s also fat. To Sweetie’s traditional parents, this last detail is the kiss of death.Sweetie loves her parents, but she’s so tired of being told she’s lacking because she’s fat. She decides it’s time to kick off the Sassy Sweetie Project, where she’ll show the world (and herself) what she’s really made of.Ashish and Sweetie both have something to prove. But with each date they realize there’s an unexpected magic growing between them. Can they find their true selves without losing each other?

    When the general audience demands diversity, writers grant them their wishes and yet members of the audience continue to complain. Why? Too much brown people? Not enough white people? Nah son step aside and let these Indian kids have the spotlight.

Yes, I’m being vague on purpose.Overall, this was an amazing story and I can’t articulate how important it is and will be.**Huge thanks to Simon Pulse for providing the arc free of charge**

    I continue to adore every single one of these books, but oh man, this one really had the fat rep of my heart. Also, one of my favorite endings (like, literal closing lines) of any YA ever. I don't even know why, but just...yeah <3

    Reading with Rachel for Friends with ARCs!4.5 stars. I really adored this book, friends! It’s easily become my favorite of Sandhya Menon’s body of work. I truly feel like this YA rom-com also has so much heart, and Sweetie and Ashish were both wonderful. Totally enjoyed it and cannot recommend it enough!

Matter of fact, I would give it a million! Obviously.I mean what more can you want from a book than for it to be extremely adorable and a swoon-fest along with an important message. This book is not just about a cute romance but it also digs deep into self love and worth. It teaches us we are enough the way we are. The society may create a gap between “thin” and “fat” but at the end of the day we are all equal. We can achieve whatever we want though our will and not our weight. Sweetie is confident and fierce. I loved her from page one. She is a force of nature that just keeps getting better and better. She knew what she was worth form the beginning and proved it to everyone else too. I loved how she never once self pitied. She is strong and independent and just a total badass with a heart of gold. Ashish Patel may seem all cool and confident from the outside but inside he is struggling. It sure did get a little warming up to him but once I started to know him, I fell hard! He is like the sweetest person. He is caring, kind, and just adorable. And their duo is out of the world. I shipped them from the get go. And every interaction they had just solidified that. Their exchanges were OBVIOUSLY delightful. They fit and complete each other so well. They are literally made for each other. This was one of my most anticipated book of the year and I can gladly say that it did not disappoint. Not that I expected anything less form Sandhya Menon but she blew my expectations away and created a masterpiece. Sandhya Menon has managed to be one of my favorite authors in a very short time. I love her writing style, the humor, and the care she pours in it. I find myself literally laughing out loud from all the hilarious dialogues she includes. And of course, all the Indian aspects just makes my heart happy. All the tiny details she includes about the Indian culture. I LOVE it!! Plus, she included a Selena Gomez reference so what more can I want! There’s Something About Sweetie will engross you completely. It’s a journey, it will make you happy, laugh, cry, swoon, and a little mad. All you’ll think about is Sweetie and Ashish. They will constantly make you smile form ear to ear. There is nothing but utter joy and happiness in this book. I absolutely love it so, so much!! 100% recommend to everyone.All the opinions are my own and completely honest. Thank you to Simon & Schuster for the ARC!!

Packed full of sweet and heartfelt messages about accepting who we are and being strong and independent while still being respectful of others. I love not only the strong and powerful messages this book had but also the strong and supportive parents and heritage as well. There truly is something to be said about reading something you don't hear about every day. About a woman being confident in her own body, regardless of what color, shape, or size said body is. About accepting not only others, but ourselves too. Loving others and allowing others to love us in return.The fact that no one is perfect. We are all learning and doing the best we can. We all have faults and cracks and insecurities regardless of our appearance but we don't let those things define us, we let them make us stronger.I adored this read. The characters, the messages, the sweet building romance. It was just so real, so fun and really did leave me with a huge smile on my face. *ARC provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.*

    A sweet, empowering romantic story about love and family, this book follows two teen children of Indian-American descent as they navigate dating, love, and standing up for themselves. Sweetie is a terrific lead character -- a talented singer and athlete, a good friend, a successful student, but she's held back by her mother's view that she won't be truly acceptable unless she loses weight.

She actually likes herself as is, and wants her mother to see her as b A sweet, empowering romantic story about love and family, this book follows two teen children of Indian-American descent as they navigate dating, love, and standing up for themselves. Sweetie is a terrific lead character -- a talented singer and athlete, a good friend, a successful student, but she's held back by her mother's view that she won't be truly acceptable unless she loses weight. Sweetie is tired of the fat-shaming. She actually likes herself as is, and wants her mother to see her as beautiful and not in need of fixing. Meanwhile, Ashish is broken-hearted and feels like his whole energy is off. Maybe it's time to rethink his avoidance of Indian girls and Indian traditions?The story becomes truly charming as Sweetie and Ashish go on a series of parentally-planned excursions, during which they open up and get to know one another while also embracing their heritage and traditions. You might argue that Sweetie and Ashish fall in love in the blink of an eye... and you wouldn't be wrong. I took this as more of a fairy tale version of teen love than a realistic look at dating and romance. There was just so much cuteness in the chemistry between the characters that a lack of reality can be forgiven.I really like how this author makes a point of showing the importance of family and tradition, even while supporting the characters in standing up against family pressure and expectations when they don't align with self-expression and feeling healthy and empowered. Sweetie and Ashish respect and value their parents, even when they disagree, and in general, the family relationships are quite lovely. Also, I love the inclusion of Hindi language, Indian-American foods, dress, and customs, and the respect the author shows for these elements.Big shout-out too for the body-positive message this book provides. As Sweetie makes clear, "fat" is just a word -- it's society that gives it a negative meaning. Sweetie takes a stand and chooses to embrace herself as is -- she's a healthy, athletic, pretty, fat girl, and that's more than okay.Reading note: There's Something About Sweetie is a follow-up and companion novel to When Dimple Met Rishi. It's not essential to have read the first book to appreciate this one, but it does add something to understanding Ashish's history, his family dynamics, and how he feels about his older brother.Review copy courtesy of the publisher via NetGalley.

I adored the mix of cute content and a powerful message, and both Ashish and Sweetie are realistic characters. This is the perfect light and sweet read for a sunny day.I’ve been a fan of Sandhya Menon for a while now, so this book was one of my highly anticipated for the spring. It follows Ashish, who is dealing with a sudden breakup, and Sweetie, who is forbidden to date Ashish until she loses weight. Ashish’s family is in on their secret dating scheme, however they are thrilled to find their son an Indian-American girl and create a contract of set dates for the couple to follow. As always in Menon’s works, this book is adorable and entertaining while also spreading an important message. I must say, I was a little surprised to see a girl who isn’t Celia be paired with Ashish after what I read in When Dimple Met Rishi, but I definitely enjoyed Sweetie’s character and interactions with Ashish much more.❀ ICONIC MAIN CHARACTERSweetie is such an iconic main character, and I loved her voice. She is a sassy track star who can kick anyone’s butt, and she has so much confidence. I liked how she is unafraid to stand up for herself instead of letting her mother bully her about her weight. Stereotypes are challenged as Sweetie proves that fat athletes are just as talented as anyone else and that she isn’t lazy. I also liked Ashish, even though he is a bit of a player at the beginning. He is adorable, and reading about him falling in love with Sweetie is so wholesome.❀ LOVABLE NOVELThere’s Something About Sweetie is a lovable novel about self-love and love in a difficult circumstance. I enjoyed the powerful message and both the main characters. This is such a feel-good book, and I would definitely recommend it this spring.

Sandhya has been writing consistently amazing stories about brown girls and their happily ever after and it makes my heart very very happy. I feel like Sandhya Menon just gets what I want out of a feel-good book.There's Something About Sweetie was extra special for me because I saw in Sweetie someone that young Nick could have aspired to be. She was amazing and I had so much admiration and respect for her. Sweetie OMG!!! I loved loved loved every word of this book! Can I leave my review at that? Sandhya has been writing consistently amazing stories about brown girls and their happily ever after and it makes my heart very very happy. I feel like Sandhya Menon just gets what I want out of a feel-good book.There's Something About Sweetie was extra special for me because I saw in Sweetie someone that young Nick could have aspired to be. She was amazing and I had so much admiration and respect for her. Sweetie was such a powerhouse of a character. She was fierce, strong, and wickedly funny. I can't tell you how much it meant to me to see a fat desi character at the forefront of a book. Being fat can be a hellish experience in any culture because of the way we are treated as ugly and unworthy of love, but it's even more daunting experience when you belong to a brown family. They constantly (and I do mean constantly) comment on your weight and your appearance and how much "prettier" you would be if you just lost some weight. It can be mentally draining to have to hear that you are undesirable and you just have to stand there without being able to fight back. Sweetie goes through that with her mother in There's Something About Sweetie. She won't let Sweetie date before losing weight, she won't let her wear the clothes that she wants, and she's constantly worrying about what other people will think of Sweetie. In her own twisted way, it's coming out of a place of love, but it doesn't make it any easier. Sweetie was bold and beautiful though, and we get to see much of her brightness emerge throughout this book as she decides to go after her own happiness regardless of what her mother thought. I loved that Sweetie was so much more than her weight. Yes, she's fat, but she has got so many interests that actively pursued including track and music. Honestly, Sweetie is the best and I would like to be her BFF - too bad, she's fictional! I'm really glad that teen girls now have this badass girl as a source of comfort.Then, of course, there's Ashish. If you've read a book by Menon, then you already know that she writes incredible love interests. Ashish was no exception. He was so soft and kind and ugh, where do I find myself someone like him, please? Ashish is dealing with one his first ever break-ups and it's not going all that well. He decides to enlist his parents' help in setting him up with a girl since they did such a good job with his brother, Rishi. This is what puts Sweetie on his radar, and what begins is a super cute relationship that had my heart singing in joy. I didn't think it would be possible to love Ashish as much as I did Rishi in When Dimple Met Rishi, but my gosh, THIS BOY! I loved how respectful he was of Sweetie and how he saw her for the incredible girl that she was. The romance was just the best. There is great chemistry, the kissing was swoony, and the conversations the two shared as they grew close to one another were perfection. The shippy feels were out of this world with There's Something About Sweetie! Ashish's parents also deserve to be mentioned, because oh my gosh! They were funny and so supportive, but also very much of a pair of desi parents - I cracked up at their dating contract for Ashish and Sweetie. They were too precious and deserve to be protected at all costs!There's Something About Sweetie is one of those books that takes you on a rollercoaster of an emotional ride. You will tear up, you'll laugh your butt off, and you'll swoon and sigh over the romance. Truly, it's the perfect package, and Sandhya Menon is just continuing to prove why she is at the top of my favorite author's list. I need more words from her, preferably, right now!

    Menon's books about like a delicious bowl of ice cream: sweet and fun and sometimes, the exact thing you need. This book is no different. Told from the perspective of Ashish, the younger brother of Rishi, and Sweetie, this is a story about two teenagers falling in love, even though Sweetie's family doesn't think Ash is an appropriate partner for her. Ash's parents, however, concoct the relationship in secret and as the two fall deeper and deeper -- with plenty of room for the traditional element Menon's books about like a delicious bowl of ice cream: sweet and fun and sometimes, the exact thing you need. This book is no different. Told from the perspective of Ashish, the younger brother of Rishi, and Sweetie, this is a story about two teenagers falling in love, even though Sweetie's family doesn't think Ash is an appropriate partner for her. Ash's parents, however, concoct the relationship in secret and as the two fall deeper and deeper -- with plenty of room for the traditional elements of a rom-com -- it becomes clear that Sweetie is going to need to tell her mom and her dad. They can't keep the relationship secret forever. But as Sweetie's mom is very traditional and feels the constraint of being a traditional to her Indian heritage, she's quite harsh on Sweetie, particularly her fat body. So it comes as no surprise that her dating someone like Ash, who is a star basketball player, is something her mom is concerned with because she feels her daughter will only continue to get her heart broken. Sweetie, however, doesn't see that and she pushes back again and again about how awesome her body is just the way it is. Menon does a fabulous job talking about fat bodies in this book. I've always been fat and I've always been an active person, but like Sweetie, felt judged for this for a long time. But when I accepted I can be fat AND be an athlete, my perspective on my body's awesome abilities changed, as did my interest in "educating" people about how my fat body worked (in other words, I didn't need to -- anyone's feelings on the matter were their own to deal with and not my responsibility!). Certainly one to add to the fat positive canon in YA. Some fun plot elements in this book: Sweetie kicking Ash's ass at a race; a Holi celebration; a wild promposal; and some sweet, sweet kissing.

Her books are total comfort food and THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT SWEETIE is no exception.I do have a few quibbles, particularly with the representation of Sweetie’s weight issues and how that was handled. However, that might be a personal “your mileage may vary” thing depending on your own experiences. Still, how goddamn refreshing is it to see a fat girl as the heroine of a teen romcom - and smiling so carefree on the cover, no less? Let’s have more of this, please. Today’s teen readers are lucky to have characters like Sweetie in their literary canon. They, and she, deserve to have more company.

    Sandhya Menon has done it again; she never ceases to bring a smile to my face when reading her lovely books and this one did not disappoint...honestly, this might be my favorite book by her to date (although I do really love Dimple & Rishi :) Sweetie feels like she constantly has to prove herself worthy; to friends, to strangers, to boys but most of all her mother. Her weight is something that her mother never fails to bring up, no matter that Sweetie is the fastest track runner at her schoo Sandhya Menon has done it again; she never ceases to bring a smile to my face when reading her lovely books and this one did not disappoint...honestly, this might be my favorite book by her to date (although I do really love Dimple & Rishi :) Sweetie feels like she constantly has to prove herself worthy; to friends, to strangers, to boys but most of all her mother. Her weight is something that her mother never fails to bring up, no matter that Sweetie is the fastest track runner at her school. So when Sweetie is presented with the choice to date the handsome, athlectic (parent approved) Ashish Patel she is pretty excited but when her mother says no because Sweetie is not a good match (ahem, Sweetie's weight) for Ashish Sweetie has had enough. Going behind her family's back Sweetie meets Ashish and they start dating. Ashish is blindsided by Sweetie's everything...her attitude, her beauty, her shyness, her heart; but Ashish is certain that he will never get over his ex (who happens to be his first love). But just as soon as Sweetie begins to break down the walls of Ashish's heart and he starts to really fall in love (it feels like the first time but better) his ex enters the picture. Will Sweetie & Ashish get their happy ending?!Honestly my favorite part of this book wasn't Ashish and Sweetie (although that was a very close second) my favorite part of this book was the relationship between Sweetie and her mother. Her mother really does want the best for Sweetie but she is too aware of Sweetie's weight to really get to know the beautiful person that Sweetie is becoming. Menon continues to slay me with her writing, her storytelling...it gets better each time I read one of her novels. (I can't wait until her adult book is out...seriously counting down the days!)Thanks to Simon & Schuster for the ARC!
