    Description
    Nina has questions. Are moms just little girls who are taller and wear prettier shoes? Can I call pest control services to get rid of a pesky seven-year-old boy? What if my sister is a voodoo high priestess? Is a grownup refusing to grow up the same as someone pretending to be asleep? Are teachers not allowed to admit theyre wrong? WHO. LEFT. PARENTS. IN. CHARGE? Somebody had better have the answers.

    Big announcement: Ninas mom is going to marry Dhiraj! Hes not the wicked stepfather by any stretch of the imagination. Hes much, much worse. Hes a rapper! And a bad one at that. And his rapper name is Dhiraj Fist aka Diddy Blood. Case rested. After all, dumb is the new wicked.

    Nina must stop this catastrophe, but shes going to need co-conspirators. With her sister Nikki, who seems to keep disappearing mysteriously, and her mothers best friend, Ashwin Uncle, whos now fighting with her mother, Nina must find a way to save her favourite grownup from making a really bad decision. Because, really, grownups just cant be trusted to make good life choices.

    As sweet as it is funny, Nina the Philosopher is a brilliant, witty, thought-provoking series that tells the story of a modern-day fairy tale: a single mother and her two wonderful, hilariously angst-ridden daughters. Its The Princess Diaries for a new generation. Except, you know, without a princess. Or a diary.

    The book is beautifully designed and illustrated by a remarkably talented new artist, Priyanka Shyam. Check out Ninas blog at www.ninathephilosopher.com. Also check out the book trailer at http://youtu.be/tkopFMFnHCM.

    About the Author

    Judy Balan is a best-selling author. She also writes blogs, short plays and columns and is currently working on her next book. Nina the Philosopher is (very loosely) based on Judy's over-thinking, over-analysing daughter, Kiara, with whom she lives in Chennai. They have a shared love of fairy tales and are living their own version of happily ever after (with no prince in the picture).

    A must-have for all teens of India

    I don't know where to start! :) This book was an amazing journey in which I could relate so many things from my life being a teenager. The characters are realistic even though Nina has her own fantasies about them. The writing style and pattern, both are NEW in this boring world of cliches. If you are a teenager who wants more of an Indian teen book, Nina would be more than happy to amaze you. The illustrations are pretty funny but they are not too much in number which is a good thing for the...

    outstandingly hilarious and sweet

    This is the first children's book I have read in quite a while and it was simply fantastic!Adults, Teenagers and people of various ages can enjoy this tale. Following the delightful character of Nina with her funny views on everything from her mother's boyfriend,her school teacher,devotees of God and even PMS makes us wish the book was longer.The language is perfect for the tale for it is simple and has a good rhythm to it. Certain passages will stay in your head for long afterwards and have ...

    Amazing and Hilarious!

    Judy Balan has done it again! Her potrayal of Nina trying her best to understand the world around through the elders present in her life makes you smile and identify with Nina and you are suddenly reminded of those confusing years when grown ups didn't make sense! Miss DigShit , Poltergeist, Diddy Blood are funny addons to a book which deals with the growing years of an eleven year old. Bookmarked many pages with lines which made my eyes swell and made me laugh as well! Looking forward to the...

    Brilliant read :)

    Judy's latest, "How to stop your grownup from making bad decisions", the first in the Nina Series is nothing short of AWESOME. Having grown up on a diet of fiction for children and YA that hinged on goblins, elves, pixies, giants and all those strange creatures, The Nina Series comes across as a breath of fresh air with a ton of promise.

    And boy, does it deliver!

    I come from a place where I've been called out for overthinking: the regular presupposition of the notion that overthinking is ba...
