America for Beginners

We're giving 100 Caboodlers the chance to read Leah Franqui's big-hearted and hilarious America for Beginners before it's out in July.

Sometimes you have to go a long way to find what you’re looking for. And sometimes a little beginner’s luck is all you need…

Welcome to the First Class India USA Destination Vacation Tour Company
• One fixed itinerary, one fixed price
• All levels catered for
• No refunds

Beginner
Recently widowed Pival Sengupta has never travelled alone before and her first trip to this strange country masks a secret agenda: to find out the truth about her long-estranged son.

Intermediate
Satya, her guileless and resourceful tour guide, has been in America for less than a year and has never actually left the five boroughs of New York.

Advanced
An aspiring/failing actress, Rebecca signed up for the role of Pival’s modesty companion; it might not be her big break but surely it’ll break her out of the rut she’s stuck in.

As their preconceptions about each other and about America are challenged, with a little beginner’s luck, these unlikely companions might learn how to live again.
