    Daddy Come Lately is a Yong Adult novel about a teen brought up by a single parent.

    Summary of the Book

    Priya's life is turned upside down as her father returns into her life. From a teenager having to deal with a single parent, a best friend's brother who keeps losing his cool for no reason, and a horrid math teacher, she has to come to terms with her father being alive instead of being dead as she was told. Now she must come to terms with the fact that she is a post-divorce child, and meet a whole new family that she has no idea ever existed. Humorous and sulky in ways only a teenager could be, Priya and her chagrin with her newfound family members become part of a story for all ages.

    Pretty good

    Gauri(9th-B, Mind Tree School, Ambala)
    'DADDY COMES LATELY'is a well written novel by Rupa Gulab. The whole story is narrated by a teenager, Priya. I would appreciate this novel as it brings us a very nice picture of a teenager's thinking about her dad-the-bad before she is known of his goodness.
    Priya, who thinks that her father is dead gets a shock when her liar-liar-pants-on-fire mother tell her about her father. She is utterly blown away and describes her father as dad-the-bad. She dis...

    Daddy come lately

    The book is an example of the YA-lit genre working well. The language is simple, but it is used effectively for characterization. Priya gets sulky lines like “Yuck! I’ve inherited his ghastly beaky nose! This man is responsible for so much of my misery.” And the grown-ups get well-etched parts, too—the mom, Tanu, is a moody artistic type who throws and breaks things in rage; her best friend, Pinkymasi, is a straight-shooter but charming all the same; and Jeet is adventurous, travelling the wo...

    Good quality product

    I loved the way the story was narrated..it is one of the best books of Rupa Gulab.The little girl Priya is aware of the fact that her father is dead,but one day the tables turn and she meets dad the bad. The emotions of the little girl and her journey with dad the bad follows ahead. The story is a wonderful piece of young adult literature.Personally it is one of my favourites.

    A GOOD BOOK

    A decent and entertaining novel by Rupa Gulab, it is a congenial book with an amiable plot. But in my opinion, the story is unable to engross the reader in the initial chapters. Overall, this book is alright and suitable for teens. The story revolves around the life of a teen, Priya, who is unable to interact comfortably with her "Newly Discovered" dad. The story is all about how through different experiences she bonds up the new relation with her dad. Though the storyline is good, it did not...
