Story And Writing Style
I really liked the way the author has knitted the story with Diya and Ashwin narrating the story in both present as well as past. A lot of time has been taken to describe each and every detail about their feelings The author has described the story very eloquently.
This book is a cute story showing friendships, love, and break-ups. What I didn’t like about this story is that there are many parts of the story which are very much predictable. So many clichéd moments in the story didn’t strike a chord with me. There could be a little less drama towards the ending of the book.
