A modern retelling of a classic Indian legend, 96 Words for Love is a coming-of-age story.

Ever since her acceptance to UCLA, 17-year-old Raya Liston has been quietly freaking out. She feels simultaneously lost and trapped by a future already mapped out for her.

Then her beloved grandmother dies, and Raya jumps at the chance to spend her last free summer at the ashram in India where her grandmother met and fell in love with her grandfather. Raya hopes to find her center and her true path. But she didn't expect to fall in love... with a country of beautiful contradictions, her fiercely loyal cousin, a local girl with a passion for reading, and a boy who teaches her that in Sanskrit, there are 96 different ways to say the word "love."

A modern retelling of the classic Indian legend of Shakuntala and Dushyanta.

In this modern retelling of the classic Indian legend of Shakuntala and Dushyanta, we follow Raya as she embarks on a journey to spend a summer in India where her grandparents met and fell in love. Filled with culture, beautiful scenery, fun family dynamics and a boy who teaches her there are 96 different ways to say the word “love.” I feel it is so important to expose our children to different people and cultures and there is no better way to do that than through a book. Diversity is so important; giving our kids the chance to explore, travel and learn through novels is a gift.
