Amber, Jazz, and Geena Dhillon, three Indian sisters living with their father in England, appear to be doing just fine, even though their mother has recently died. In fact, the Bindi Babes are the envy of their peers--they're perfect students, and their sad and largely absent father indulges their every material wish. At least that's true until the girls' nosy, interfering aunt from India arrives to spoil everything; together they scheme how to get rid of Auntie so they can return to their perfect (and very Western) lives. Nina Wadia's lilting voice does an outstanding job narrating the comic twists of the Dhillon sisters' various plots. Wadia handles the variety of voices in the story with ease and humor and draws a wonderfully entertaining family portrait that is by turns funny and touching.
