But Jess's parents don't understand why she won't settle down, study for law school and learn to cook the perfect chapatti. Why, they wonder, can't she be more like her sister, Pinky, who's engaged to a very suitable young man? If they only knew what Pinky gets up...
Jules dreams of playing pro-football in the United States, but her Mum wishes she could be a bit more girlie — how is she ever going to find a boyfriend if she won't put on a dress? What her Mum doesn't know is that Jules isn't interested in playing the field -she's just after one man, Joe, but being the team coach, Joe is out of bounds.
