I totally loved this book.. it had a lot to do with her life and how she was confused in so many ways at once. Romance, friendship, and many other topics, this book is a GREAT read!

Born Confused was a great story. I felt bad for Dimple and her lack of expressing her emotions and I felt she gave in to her friend, Gwyn, too easily. Other than that it was pretty good and since I'm Indian myself I enjoyed the story even more, but if I wasn't I'd probably still enjoy the story because the plot could be suspenseful at times.

It was good, but too long. The author probably could've said what she wanted to say in 200-300 pages instead of 500 something.. Anyway, I did feel unbelievably empathetic for Dimple, the main character, so it was moving to me.

" Born Confused" is a great story, because is about a girl named Dimple ( her offical name is not Dimple, her family and friend called her by that name) trying to find her identity, and getting confused with it. The worse part is that her friends didn't try to help her. One of them liked the boy she was in love with, and that cause more problems in her life. However at the end she realized that she is like any other human, and had the strenght to fight for the guy she liked.

This is the reason I liked the story because even though she was confused, she never gave up, and at the end she realized that she was doing the wrong thing.
