When She Smiled by Ritoban Chakrabarti

When She SmiledWhen She Smiled by Ritoban Chakrabarti
My rating: 3 of 5 stars



This is a debut novel by this author.

Its aimed mostly at YA but I think anyone young at heart can read it.

Its a coming of age story, so we have difficulties, love, falling in love all that kind of thing.

We get to know the character very well.


Its well written, not a bad book for me to read, I quite enjoyed it.

Not an outstanding read, but full of growth for me to read more of this authors books.



Mrityunjoy Roy is a fifteen year old Bengali who has spent the last ten years of his life growing up in Shimla. While his family is completely academically oriented, he wants something more. 
Finally he meets Akanksha in school, who turns his world upside down with her gorgeous looks and mind boggling smile. 
As fate would have it, she joins his tuition, and thus begins the torrid year of puppy love, romance, heartbreak, tragedy, and self discovery. 
Set among the scenic Shivalik hills of Shimla when mobile phones and internet were non-existent, this is a story of how an average young teenager comes to terms with his destiny
