BOOK REVIEW :-
All the stories are good. The book is well presented.
All of us go through such phase from teen into adult, getting mature, when we understands life,the meaning of it.
Todays generation had to fight for freedom .They make choices without any thought or regard about the consequences.
"Smoking, drinking, drugs ,even sex! This pub culture is running"
Staying out late ...
I think author has done lot of research . Its a nice read. Its sweet and lite read. I would recommend this book to all teenagers and youngsters. I WOULD GIVE THIS BOOK 4 OUT OF 5 STARS.
