She struggled, cried and did everything she could to bring him back but he was gone by then.. She waited for his return , nothing happened but one day…
Since social media is the center of all teenage communications, it is no surprise that there are many who now find their love online.
This is a book that deals with this “Online Love”.
The writing style is quite simple, the pace is quite comfortable and this is a light and breezy read.
The protagonist of this novel is a simple girl who lives with her friends and whose focus is on gaining her education. She then befriends a guy on facebook. The good part here is that the story line is quite believable. They talk online, then on calls, then they meet and gradually fall in love. This gave a very realistic touch to the whole story.
The characters have also been developed really well. Even the side characters, like the protagonist’s friends, were given separate personalities.
What is different about this book is that it is far too realistic and believable. The story is something that many people can relate to their own lives. Even the ending was well thought out.
Overall it would be a good read if you enjoy reading love stories like Durojay Butta or Chetan Bhagat.
So, the overall ratings are as below:
Cover : 4/5
Title : 4/5
