The Bold Type meets Younger in How Maya Got Fierce by Sona Charaipotra, a YA fish-out-of-water contemporary novel!

The heiress to a mini garlic empire in the heart of Gilroy, California, she''s meant to be a good Indian girl - which means agriculture school, an MBA, and settling down with a suitable Sikh boy.

So spending her 17th summer at cow camp in New Jersey is a really big deal. Farm kids nationwide convene to learn to milk cows, shuck corn, and, uh, form ''strategic alliances.'' But when Maya gets kicked out of camp after an expensive accident - yes, it involves a boy - she scrambles to save face and keep her parents from finding out. Hard to do when she owes the school thousands of dollars.

Desperate to earn enough to pay off her mistake, Maya interviews for an internship at Fierce, a fashion magazine she''s been obsessed with forever. When she lands a gig as assistant features editor, it''s a New York City dream come true. Especially because she rocks at it.

But it might soon become her worst nightmare - because the Fierce folks think she''s 26.

And just wait until her parents find out.
