MY REVIEW: I was provided with a copy of the book by the author in exchange for an honest review.
The story is certainly different from anything that I have read so far. It deals with the pertinent question of rape.
Palak is a beautiful young woman studying in college. She is leading a fun life of drinking, partying and even drugs with her group of friends. While stoic Rohin in her group of friends appears to be attracted to her, Palak herself is interested in another friend Jahan.
Palak’s life takes a turn for the worse when she attends a rave party with her friends. She wakes up the next morning with no recollection of the previous night. But the battered condition of her body tells her that something serious and unpleasant has happened to her. She faces further humiliation when there is a sex video of her and Rohin doing the rounds.
Rohin takes Palak to his home town in order to get away from the gossip and speculation. Palak goes through a tremendous ordeal as she struggles to come to terms with what has happened to her.
Will Rohin be able to find out what actually transpired on the night of the party? Will Palak be able to heal? The author has beautifully depicted Palak’s thoughts, feelings and emotions in the story.
I recommend this book to readers as value for money.
