A young teen has his life roll out beautifully and he is shown to enjoy it as any other boy would. But as soon as he realizes what freedom means, he is forced to say bye to a few friends who grew up with him. How he understands his own emotions as the event ubravel is the story of this book.
I loved the way the author explains small and big events with as much details necessary for anyone to imagine the scene in their own minds. A student getting punished, a kid enjoying his jalebi, a young sports enthusiast loving his football, a library period which brought back the most precious moments of the 90s kids in me. Do kids these days even have a dedicated period for library? How previlidged we were to have such beautiful memories at school when Technology hadn’t crept in much except for a pinball video game.
He also has 2 other books in the same time period – ‘Looking for the Rainbow‘ and ‘Till the Clouds Roll by‘ and I have been better by the bug to start them next.
