My Indian Queen, at 114 pages, is a nice, quick summer read.
The story is written from the point of view of a young man (Ryan), who in the beginning is pining back to the days of his last summer before going off to college for the first time. This summer includes a job at a local circus (though I really don't think circuses stay in one place that long - if they ever did), a first love with a young woman by the name of Cassie, who is half American and half Indian (as in India, hence the picture on the cover) and who is her own person, and true friendship with Cassie and a misfit by the name of Paul.
The end takes you back to the present day and what Ryan decides to do about his hum-drum life as a police detective. I won' t give it away, but the I liked the ending - slightly implausible but not so much so to ruin the story. I would recommend it (and it is appropriate for young audiences as well).

Even though this book was not my favorite genre, I enjoyed the easy style in which this author wrote. I felt as if Ryan Harper, the main character, was in the room with me telling me the story of his life as it happened. The story evoked every emotion. If it were a movie, I would call it a serious "chick flick." It reminded me of the movies you see on the Hallmark Channel. The people were real and I felt as if I were one of the people in Ryan's life as he was recounting the events in his life. The only thing that bugged me was that the main character had a cat. I don't know any men who own cats, but that's just me. I have not given a book a five star in a long time and, technically, this was a novella. This book deserved it.
