Read full description of the books:
Rupinder Gill was raised under the strict rules of her parents' Indian upbringing. While her friends were practicing their pliés, having slumber parties, and spending their summers at camp, Rupinder was cleaning, babysitting her siblings, and watching hours on end of American television. But at age 30, Rupinder realized how much she regretted her lack of childhood adventure.
Stepping away from an orderly life of tradition, Rupinder set put to finally experience the things she missed out on. From learning to swim and taking dance lessons, to going to Disney World, her growing to-do list soon became the ultimate trip down non-memory lane. What began as a desire to experience all that had been denied to her leads to a discovery of what it means to be happy, and the important lessons that are learned when we are at play.

Read information about the authorAfter graduating high school as the class valedictorian,
Rupinder studied Arts at the University of Toronto then moved back into her parents’ basement for a year. Her first book, On The Outside Looking Indian, was released in March 2011 and was shortlisted for the Stephen Leacock Memorial Medal for humour writing. She has also written for The National Post, McSweeneys, CBC Radio and This Hour Has 22 Minutes.
In her spare time, Rupinder enjoys overeating and watching lots of television, preferably at once. If she could host a dream dinner party, it would include Woody Allen, Bea Arthur and John Ritter. If she could only take one thing to a desert island, it would be a yacht.
She is currently working on a new book.
