May's Book Choice
Neena and Sameer’s youngest daughter Maalika loved reading this vibrant and quirky debut novel from Bonnie Garmus.
“Lessons in Chemistry” tells the story of research chemist Elizabeth Zott, who finds herself navigating a tricky (and at times disturbing) landscape of 1960’s misogyny and sexism.
A reluctant heroine, Elizabeth inspires a quiet revolution via her TV cooking show and trailblazes her way to change.
Funny, moving and observational, it gets a 10/10 from Maalika.
