Cartwheels In A Sari by Jayanti Tamm

From the day she was born, Jayanti Tamm has been dubbed as the “Chosen One” and thrown into a life different than most girls. When other kids her age were going to birthday parties, she was going home to meditate. When she got older and her classmates were going to college, she was told by her Guru that she was not meant to do that. Instead, he tells her where to work and she gives him her paychecks. Her whole life has always revolved around Guru, her spiritual leader, but she doesn’t know if she’ll be able to handle that much longer. She’s starting to develop her own problems, one of which is boys.

In her book, “Cartwheels in a Sari,” Jayanti Tamm discusses her struggles with her religion, and what happened when she tried to break away from it. It is very inspirational, with many passages that I think teens my age can relate to. In my opinion, this book is a great read, and it is easy to get a hold of. You can buy a copy online or wherever books are sold. If that’s not possible, I’d suggest you go to the library and check it out because it is really worth your time.
