Devi from "Never Have I Ever" would read American Betiya, according to Browngirl Bookshelf
YAY! @browngirlbookshelf on Instagram created a post of their book recommendations for the beloved characters of Mindy Kaling's Netflix series "Never Have I Ever," and AMERICAN BETIYA is their pick for the show’s flawed & lovable heroine Devi, played by the brilliant Maitreyi Ramakrishnan !🤯😭♥️
When I first saw "Never Have I Ever," I fell in love with Devi for the kind of kindred spirit she is. And I couldn’t help but think that Devi would vibe with American Betiya for its honest, on-page explorations of sex, immigrant family dynamics (read: at all costs, keep those boyfriends a secret from your South Asian mom), empowering female friendships, cultural exchange vs cultural appropriation, and humor amid painful experiences. Devi, I wrote American Betiya for girls like us. 🤩
Check out @browngirlbookshelf’s post on their Instagram page for their book recs for the other beloveds of this one-of-a-kind show that has stolen our hearts. These books include titles by gifted authors: Saumya Dave, Poorna Bell and Vauhini Vara ♥️
Thank you, @browngirlbookshelf !
