The story begins with two Shy young teens crushing on a senior year student . Typical ? Nope ! The story shows Two phases of the girl’s life – The teenage phase and how a simple teenage act changed the course of her life . In the later Part of the story , the main lead falls in a dilema and from thereon rises a “Wishlist” which she has no plans to accomplish .
This is a character driven story . The main character being Diksha , a shy young teen . The story followes her journey of discovering Womanhood , living the life she always wanted to but couldn’t .
It’s a Romance , to no surprise our hero is as charming as he can get , with the almost unrealistic and dreamy qualities .
But apart from it being a Romance this story screams ” Friendship ” . something that we loose after our Initial adolescence days .
I have real problems with the writing of this book , in the middle of the book some characters name was switched which I later realised was printing errors (or lack of proper editing )
Dialogues were the main plus point for me in this book ; simple, natural , and realistic .
The plot has nothing much to it . It’s predictable at most parts . Although the way the story was presented was really commendable .
Young teens ! If you are a teen and want a quick read or is in the mood for a lovee dovee phase Read it . You will enjoy it thoroughly . I had a stretched biggg smile while reading it .
If you are a beginners and want to get into reading world , Read it ! It will make you fall in love with this book .
If you are a grown up adult and prefer reading complex plots , deep , impactful stories ; do me a favour please don’t read it . This book is not for you then .
It will be plain boring for you and probably you will not like it .
I personally really liked this book , I finished it in a day . As I said it’s a very light hearted one time read. If you are having a bad day pick it up and you will not regret it , it will lit you up in the first 10pages .
Although I couldn’t connect with the characters but the story telling skills of the author is really good .
Will I give it a second read ?
Rating – 3.3/5
Wanna get personal and know how I came across this book and have it a shot to read ? Then keep reading .
someone gifted this book to me a long back . With a pretty cover this book laid on my bookshelf for quite a long time . Yesterday , I couldn’t sleep ! Thought about reading a quick book and keep ahead in my goodreads challenge . Among my bookish challenges there was one with “Read a book from the author with the same initials as you have ” and Voila this book had it and hence I read it . ..
