My Review:
Some stories take us back to the school days. A lot many of us had those mundane naughty days in schools where for every little mischief that happens in the uniform, we are a part of the game knowingly or unknowingly. This book is an illustrated delight of those memories. I finished the book at one go without taking a halt and enriching my memories of my school days, having super cool friendly parents and running away from text books and thriving in a foreign country with Indian upbringing.
The writing is simple, the descriptions are uncomplicated and the plot has been staged by the author beautifully. The manner in which Love, hatred, passion, respect, romance and values have been portrayed by the author has a moral to children upbringing strategy as an underline phrase.
The rebel in an adolescent boy, the passion for his ambition, that one teacher who remains a guide come what may be and the supportive yet rule bounded family structure has brought out a picture of child and surrounding relationship that the society so needs to understand today.
I would wish Chitra a wonderful writing time ahead and give this book a 5/5 rating. It is an absolute enjoyment to have one in my bookshelf.
