Anisha Mistry is all set to be a bridesmaid at her Aunty Bindi’s wedding tomorrow…until she finds a note in her family’s letterbox. Bindi’s groom has been kidnapped and will only be released IF THE WEDDING IS CALLED OFF! With best friend Milo, a mischievous granny, a runaway lobster, a giant chauffeur, and some super sleuthing skills, it’s up to Anisha Mistry to find her uncle and save THE big Indian Wedding of the year.
Serena was shortlisted for the Asian Writer Short Story Prize in 2017 and finalist in the Undiscovered Voices Anthology 2018. Soon afterwards her debut children’s series about school girl and reluctant detective Anisha secured a multi-book contract with Usborne following a fiercely contested auction.
