A fab review though the book looks too predictable for my liking With her lucid and playful language, Misra creates a sea of jaishere and the reader can easily establish personal harmonies with her characters and events.

Janu’s parents take her to Kerala and just like any other teenage girl Janu feels unsure of her future with Arjun.
