Inspired by a tribute band playing the Beatles’ songs with traditional Indian instruments, Bollywood Invasion tells a fantasy about a modern-day American boy who wakes up in 1958 India as the reincarnation of John Lennon. This unique book hits the mark for romance, comedy, and suspense - how would the course of history be changed if Lennon had known Chapman weeks before his murder?
Sixteen-year-old John Palmieri is living an average life in modern-day Brooklyn until one day when he wakes up as the prince of a royal family in India, thirty-five years before he was born. Suddenly, he finds himself with riches and power beyond his wildest fantasies. Brooklyn is readily forgotten. Life becomes a constant stream of debauchery, coming to a stand-still only when he meets “the one.” However, love doesn’t come easy. He must become a better man, a pursuit ignited by his memories of Beatles songs on his iPod…
With a plot that moves unexpectedly, and popular Beatles songs beautifully integrated with the story development, readers will be engrossed in a new reading experience along the way. This enlivening read will take readers on a journey from Brooklyn to India, then England, and finally back to New York City, where everything started.
