Book Trailer Thursday #5- Lovetorn by Kavita Daswani

Book Trailer Thursday is a weekly feature inspired by Once Upon a Twilight.We are hoping to promote not only new books that are out or are soon to be out on the shelves, but to also promote the creation of book trailers themselves! Make sure to comment below!

This week’s trailer:

Author: Kavita Daswani 
Release Date: January 17, 2012
Publisher: HarperTEEN

When Shalini’s father gets a new job in L.A., she is torn away from her life in India and the boy to whom she’s been betrothed since she was three. L.A. is so different, and Shalini dresses and talks all wrong. She isn’t sure she’ll survive high school in America without her fiancé, Vikram, and now she has to cope with her mom’s homesickness and depression. A new friend, chill and confident Renuka, helps Shalini find her way and get up the courage to join the Food4Life club at school. But she gets more than just a friend when she meets Toby—she gets a major crush. Shalini thinks she loves Vikram, but he never made her feel like this. 
In Lovetorn, Shalini discovers that your heart ultimately makes its own choices, even when it seems as if your destiny has already been chosen.  (Summary from Goodreads)

Both of us not only LOVE this book trailer but can't wait to get our hands on this book! We both have a passion for "multicultural" YA lit. and this one certainly fits the the bill! HAve you read it yet? 

Do you have a book trailer for Thursday?
