Shelfari edited the description of Year of the Chick Wednesday, December 28, 2011.
An awkward family homecoming at Christmas. A humiliating public weigh-in, with two judging parents as the audience. The announcement of a deadline for arranged marriage doom. And that's just the first two chapters. In "Year of the Chick," Romi Narindra must find love before her parents find her a husband. This is a difficult task in a world where self-consciousness is at an-all-time high, and dating experience at an all-time low. Severely lacking in seductive skills and uninspired by her corporate job, Romi turns to what she loves, by writing about her quest to find love on her brand new blog. From whiskey-breath scum bags to uni-browed creeps and everything in between, Romi and her wingmen come up empty time after time. But hope floats again when she meets a fellow writer unexpectedly. On the Internet. So will it be arranged marriage doom, or an Internet affair that's not as creepy as "To Catch a Predator?" Time will tell in the "year of the chick," a twelve-month quest to find love. Tick-tock. ------------------------------------ "Year of the Chick" is a tale of fiction inspired by a blog the author wrote in 2008.
