Karma Khullar's Mustache
In the tradition of Judy Blume, debut author Kristi Wientge tackles the uncomfortable — but all too relatable — subject of female body hair and self-esteem with this “sparkling and triumphant tale of a middle school misfit” (Heather Vogel Frederick).
"Karma Khullar —half Indian, half white; half Sikh, half Methodist — is starting sixth grade, and she’s pretty sure that the universe is against her. With her mother working full-time, leaving her father to make lunches and take Karma bra shopping, life at home has required adjustments. Meanwhile, Karma’s best friend Sara is suddenly obsessed with hair, makeup, and the snarky girl from California who just moved in across the street. But Karma’s biggest problem is the 17 new hairs on her upper lip that are a magnet for attention — the unwelcome kind. As tension grows with Sara, and her classmates’ taunts about her hairy lip escalate, Karma attempts to take control of her own destiny.
