Pages: 9

Price: 49 INR/$2.99

My Ratings: 4.1/5

As an ambivert this story felt so personal that it broke my heart. Prajakta’s (the protagonist) struggle at trying to gather the courage to speak to people, is something we all have felt at some point in our growing up years.

What I liked about the book :
-The relatability.
-Makes you feel empathy toward the protagonist’s struggle.

–> The twist in the end was just amazing! It’s a good book nonetheless and the writing style is quite captivating

What I did not like about the book :
– Too short a read for the price it asks (49 INR)

–> I just wish the story was a little longer as it seemed to have great potential.

It’s a good book nonetheless and the writing style is quite captivating
