On the Outside Looking Indian - Rupinder Gill

On the Outside Looking Indian - Rupinder Gill (2012)

Rupinder Gill has written her memoir about being born in Canada to Indian parents, and spending most of her childhood studying, doing chores and lots of time in front of the television.

When she turns thirty she decides to do all of those things that she felt she missed out on as a child.  Going to camp, learning to swim, going to Disneyland  amongst the adventures.

As well as going about these adventures, we hear about her search for identity as a young adult, dating and career choices, which made it an interesting read.  I have known a few girls like this, who after having very protected childhoods, really branch out and bloom as adults.
