Description for The Spectacular Miss
An Amazon Rising Star of Summer 2016: Sonia Bahl in her charming debut novel, The Spectacular Miss takes the readers through Nira’s coming-of-age journey-from the narrow lanes of Calcutta to the bustling streets of London, as she transforms from an eight-year old tomboy to a confident woman in her late twenties.
This first book is both gripping and hilarious, we see the world through Nira’s eyes, first as she grapples with her desire to be a boy at a young age, and then through the lens of a young woman navigating her way through a complex web of relationships and heartbreaks. Her oddball, yet madly loving family shapes her personality, and a poignant relationship with her brother's best friend shapes her life. The writer chronicles Nira’s adventures with uninhibited candor that endears the readers to the odd-ball heroine of this arresting story. –Amazon.in Editorial Review

The narrative does make you want to sit down and read it all in one go, and breathlessly follow the spectacular miss on her travels, physical and emotional, without missing a beat. There is a real sense of place, and the book is dotted with very believable characters. A charming read.
Can't wait for this to hit the big screen and see the characters in our head come to celluloid life!
It's so vivid,you wonder if this story will soon makes its way to the screen.It deserves to be.
It's a fantastic beginning from an author whose work we will enjoy for quite some time to come.
When's the next book?What will it be about?
One thing's for sure i am looking forward to the verbal dexterity that is sure to liven up an evening.
I truly enjoyed reading this one.
The war stories of growing up, the fun, the bittersweet and the ecstatic… it will take you back to all of it. You are guaranteed to have a smile on your face while reading it. At times it will be the “I’m about to burst into a fit of laughter” smile and at others it will be a more wistful and nostalgic one of recognition - of having been there and wanting to be back there again.
So, if you’ve been craving that old buddy who isn’t close enough (geographically) to call up and go have a drink with, pick this book up.
This is a wonderful debut from Sonia Bahl. When (not if) a movie is made on this, it’s sure to become a cult classic.
