I was looking for light fiction when I came accross this book. The cover, with its cream colored heart on a green background, itself says its a story of a girl. The story revolves around a small town girl Niharika.

Again like most urban authors, she too joins an engineering college. Here I liked some of the jokes like the best icebreaker among first year students is their IIT preparation. She has been a bookworm all her life and her sister transforms her into a beautiful girl just before starting college. She wishes to have a nice boyfriend like her sister. In her pursuit she falls for the wrong guy. The authors have given nice descriptions of her friends Tanmay, the small town football loving guy and Pia, the sophisticated rich girl with a golden heart. She also comes accross Karthik who is a senior. Her experiences in mess and hostel are hilarious. She goes through a lot of events and ultimately finds her true love.

This is the story for nice spicy serial. The characters are few and well defined. I was expecting the authors to give more towards the end of her engineering studies. After a hard day’s work, if you are reading for entertainment, then this is the book. The language is simple and the fonts are large. It can be taken on a long journey. This would be good for a library but not as a gift.
