Read & Download Rani Patel in Full Effect 100 Sonia Patel × 0 Download Almost seventeen Rani Patel appears to be a kick ass Indian girl breaking cultural norms as a hip hop performer in full effect But in truth she's a nerdy flat chested nobody who lives with her Gujarati immigrant parents on the remote Hawaiian island of Moloka'i isolated from her high school peers by the unsettling norms of Indian culture where husband is God Her parents' traditionally arranged marriage is a sham Her dad turns to her for all his needs even the i. This book needed some work for a few reasons primarily in respect to needing one plot point less than what was mixed in and it needed a better pacing and time structure It runs long but then it rushes to a conclusion that s ultimately not as satisfying as it could be I was left too with a lot of uestions of believabilityworld building with Rani why did she have no friends and no female friends in her life at all We get a uick note on this later on but it made me ask a lot of uestions throughout rather than accept things at face valueTHAT SAIDThis book isn t for me and the teen readers who want a story about an Indian girl living in Moloka i who turns to rap to work through her grief will love this There s no uestion that readers will be annoyed that Rani keeps making the same terrible choices relating to men but it s that series of errors that makes her wholly real and realistic It sucks watching her get hurt again and again but it s part of her process of growingThere are multiple instances of rape and sexual assault in this book and it s tough to see the fallout of that on Rani But what is great is seeing how she uses this hurt in ways that ultimately help her come into her own as a teenager This reminded me a lot of JULIET TAKES A BREATH both the good and the bad And there are times while reading this I felt like an outsider who didn t get the culture or life on the island but what works so well about that is there will be readers who see it get it and need that story A good debut which showcases Patel s potential as a writer view spoiler I didn t get through the author s note at the end since it was like some of the rest of this wayyyy too long This and the book itself could needed tightening to go from good to really good hide spoiler

Rani in Full Effect takes place on the island of Molokai in Hawaii during the early 90s Rani is a teenage Gujarati Indian whose family runs a general store and restaurant on Molokai Her world comes crashing down the day she sees her father with another woman Her parents traditionally arranged marriage is a sham her parents are always arguing with Rani always coming between them She s always been very close unhealthily close to her father with him coming to her for all his needs With his new girlfriend Rani has been replaced and everything falls apart Around the time Rani s world is falling apart she becomes friendly with Mark a 30 year old who often visits the general store to buy beer and cigarettes Rani loves hip hop music and turns to listening and writing her own rap lyrics during this difficult time Mark introduces her to a secret underground hip hop group where she is able to feel like herself She has a huge crush on Mark and she is ecstatic when she learns that he likes her back Ew What follows are a bunch of bad decisions made by Rani with her relationship with Mark basically replacing the relationship she had with her fatherRani has a very complicated relationship with her mother She craves to have a better relationship with her mother but most of the time she s distant and ignores Rani It s frustrating to see Rani trying to get her mother s attention with little to no result However by the end of the book her relationship has begun to heal I love that her mom intervenes between Rani and Mark and my favorite part may been when she stands up to her husband s girlfriend Oh Wendy I wouldn t live with you and Pradip even if that meant I had to be homeless I actually wanted to say thank you Thank you for taking Pradip off my hands You can keep him And his bullcrap YESI m so glad Rani and her mom stood up to her father when he wanted to move back in with them WITH HIS GIRLFRIEND That could have gone so many ways but they said no and stood by that no It s also frustrating to see Rani make so many bad decisions These bad decisions are a result of the years of abuse she endured but that didn t make it any easier to read each time she decided to take Mark back I m glad she decided not to go back with Mark at the end of the book but it bothers me that she may have taken him back if he wasn t going to Maui to live with his pregnant girlfriend It was also hard to read about the self blame she kept feeling through the story You just want to tell her it s not her fault and try to help her in anyway possibleI really had no interest in reading the book until I found out it takes place on Molokai I was fortunate to visit Molokai about 10 years ago and I have fond memories from that trip I loved being familiar with some of the places that she mentions in the book We looked in some of the shops along Ala Malama Avenue in Kaunakakai including going grocery shopping there I have a picture of the library she mentions We went to Kalaupapa and I m pretty sure we stopped at the overlook where Mark takes Rani at the end of the book I have a picture taken with the Phallic Rock I know who Father Damien is I hope I don t sound like the tourist who Pono and Rani find so annoying at the end of the book I felt like Molokai was a character of the bookIt was the setting that drew me in but once I started the book and while it was difficult to read at times I really enjoyed Rani s story I look forward to reading Sonia Patel s next bookJust a side note there is uite a bit of Hawaiian and Gujarati jargon throughout the book I was lucky enough to know that there is a glossary at the end of the book but you may not know this if you aren t warned Don t become frustrated just flip back when you see something you don t understand There are a few words that aren t included in the glossary but most of those you can figure out using context clues

    (Pdf New) [Rani Patel in Full Effect] BY Sonia Patel I am hesitant to put this down as local Hawaii literature but it does take place on Molokaʻi in the 90s and although I first felt like the geographic markers in the story were sort of like people in Hawaiʻi watching Dog the Bounty Hunter I know that even though I would never drive so much on Molokaʻi one of the high school kids I talked to from Molokaʻi High said his biggest achievement was driving 200 mile
