Imaginary Men

by Anjali Banerjee

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Lina Ray has a knack for pairing up perfect couples as a professional matchmaker in San Francisco, but her well-meaning, highly traditional Indian family wants her to get married. When her Auntie Kiki introduces Lina to the bachelor from hell at her sister's wedding in India, Lina panics and blurts out, "I'm engaged!" Because what's the harm in a little lie? Who's sari now? Lina scrambles to find a real fiancé because Auntie Kiki will be coming to America soon to approve the match. But date after disastrous date gets her no closer to her prince -- until an actual prince arrives on her doorstep. Lina hasn't been able to stop fantasizing about traditional but dashing Raja Prasad since she met him in India. In fact, her imaginary fiancé has begun to resemble him! Now Raja is in San Francisco and wants Lina to find a suitable bride for his brother. Though they live oceans apart, Lina longs to bridge the gap. But when her fantastic fib catches up with her, life is suddenly like a Bollywood flick gone horribly wrong. Lina may have an over-developed fantasy life, but she certainly never imagined things would turn out like this!

La librería de las nuevas oportunidades

by Anjali Banerjee

Érase una vez una vieja librería en la pequeña y lluviosa isla de Shelter Island...A ese lugar tan especial, donde los libros parecen tener vida propia, llega un día Jasmine, dispuesta a hacerse cargo del negocio mientras la propietaria, su tía Ruma, viaja a la India para curar su corazón cansado.Sola en medio del polvo y el desorden, la joven intenta dar un toque de modernidad al local, colocando títulos nuevos y llamativos en el escaparate, pero muy pronto los clásicos de siempre imponen su presencia, y los autores vivos y muertos revolotean por las estanterías dejando oír su voz.Así Jasmine vuelve a descubrir a Shakespeare y a Edgar Allan Poe, y no solo eso: la chica aprende a escuchar a sus clientes, a comprender lo que de verdad buscan en una novela o en un manual de cocina, y acabará encontrando al hombre con quien compartir todos los libros de su vida.La librería de las nuevas oportunidades es a la vez una fábula romántica y un homenaje a la buena literatura porque a menudo es ahí, en las páginas amarillentas de un libro olvidado, donde están las palabras que pueden cambiar nuestra vida."Dedico esta novela a todos los libreros, estén donde estén. Ellos son los que nunca se cansan de vender sueños."Anjali Banerjee

Ells no es cansen mai de vendre somnis."Anjali Banerjee

Seaglass Summer

by Anjali Banerjee

Eleven-year-old Poppy Ray longs to be a veterinarian, but she's never had a pet. This summer, she's going to spend a month with her uncle Sanjay, veterinarian and owner of the Furry Friends Animal Clinic on an island off the Washington coast. Poppy is in for big surprises. She loves tending to the dogs, cats, and even a bird, and she discovers the fun of newborn puppies and the satisfaction of doing a good job. But she learns that there's more to caring for animals than the stethoscope and cotton swabs in her Deluxe Veterinarian First-Aid Kit. She's not prepared for quirky pet owners, gross stuff, or scary emergencies. With help from a boy named Hawk, a chunk of seaglass, and a touch of intuition, Poppy gains a deeper understanding of the pain and joy of working with animals. With warmth and humor, Anjali Banerjee tells the story of a resourceful, determined girl who can't wait to grow up, but begins to realize just how much she has left to discover.
