Browntown Diaries

Browntown Diaries introduces us to the crazy, weird, and just plain funny life of Karan, a teenager trying to survive a summer with his brown family, in a brown town.

He spends his summer on awkward family trips, learning Indian “negotiating” skills (aka: extortion), exploring his sister’s Martian roots, and keeping track of his grandpa’s gang activities.

What else would you expect when you’re living in a brown family?

He makes sure to keep track of everything that happens in his diary, no matter how embarrassing. After all, that’s what diaries are for.
