About the Author:
My View: The blurb of the book talks about two best friends falling for the same gal but this comes quite at the end. The protagonist Jai Singh is shown to have fallen for Mahi all the while but the confrontation part comes in the end. There are subtle hints but the suspense is on. But this is book is not just about this. It has a lot more. It talks about family bonds which we rarely get to see nowadays, a bro-bro relationship, a bro-sis bond, a parent-kid bond, a brother in law sis in law bond, it has every relation that we have in life but hardly find time to express. The book gives a fresh feel even though it talks about college life, a group of friends, two guys and two gals, their journey of three years in college. How the guy falls for the wrong gal all three years when she is already robbed in by his best friend is something to watch out for. And an amazing moral for every boy who wishes to propose a girl, ‘Never wait for the perfect time, jst cash in the time you have and that is NOW for its now or never’. I especially loved reading Page 132 and 133, a few things many families forget in the long run. Overall a light hearted novel that gives you quite a number of lessons of life with a balanced amount of dosage of romance. Though I wish the ending could have been better but then yes it wasn’t that bad either Jai had finally got to know what was required out of him. And the best part while reading the book is you don’t feel that the book was actually written when the author was 13 and got published when he was 15. Kudos to writer for the amazing work. Ah! And yes I did find some typos but didn’t stop the flow anyway.
Verdict: Deserves to be read by every youngster.
