South Asia Book Award Winner

Full of sisterhood, diversity, and complex, strong women, this book will speak to readers as they will undoubtedly find a kindred spirit in at least one of the Das women. --Booklist starred review

... an unforgettable novel... Perkins's vibrantly written exploration of a family in transition is saturated with romance, humor, and meaningful reflections on patriotism, blended cultures, and carving one's own path. --Publishers Weekly starred review

This stunning book about immigration and cultural assimilation is a must-purchase for teen and new adult collections. --School Library Journal starred review

...an ambitious narrative that illuminates past and present, departure and reunion, women and family. --The Horn Book starred review

...features inspiring South Asian girl and women protagonists grappling with love, faith, and culture, as well as the intersections among their personal, communal, and national histories...lushly drawn and emotionally resonant. --Kirkus

The fully fleshed characters and complex family dynamics provide a vibrant background for exploration of multigenerational adaptation to a diverse America and of the familial and romantic love that nourishes their new roots. --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

With wisdom and wit, You Bring the Distant Near illustrates the beauty in diversity. Perkins's striking imagery and deep, heartfelt insights illuminate the darkest corners of ignorance, providing a bright path to understanding and embracing differences in all their many splendors. --Shelf Awareness starred review
