BOOK REVIEW: TEENAGE DIARIES The Days That Were by Saurabh Sharma

"Owing to a name that draws ridicules and upbringing in a typical orthodox family, Ghanshyam is an under-confident nerd. His listless life gets a shot in the arm when the coolest yet hottest girl of the school—Aneya, enters his life. But before he could even propose to his first crush, she crushes his heart for reasons unknown to him. 
Aimless and distraught, he finds solace in friendship as he and his best friend—Vikram, meet the ultra-rich and suave duo Armaan—a racer in the underground racing circuit, and Sandy. And thus begins Ghanshyam’s eventful transformation to GK. 
From the first smoke that he blows to the first punch he throws, from the first of his many kisses to the first class he misses, from the first gulp of whiskey to his penchant to everything risky, Ghanshyam starts living a life that he has not even dreamt of. 
But living on the edge has its own perils, and soon a series of events changes his life forever. 
Will GK fall of the ridge? Will his friendship survive the storm, and most importantly, will he be able to get the girl he has always loved—Aneya? 
Take this hilarious yet emotional joyride to live the extraordinary life of this Indian teenager and in the process, relive yours!"

BOOK REVIEW:- The story revolves around the protagonist - Ghanshyam who is a school student  
As usual he was like all other boys .
Vikram was his best friend . He was a dreamer and thinker.
He loved playing cricket .Cricket was his favorite sports.
He joined tution classes with the aim to spend time away from home.
In eight class  when he was excited as girls are going to join the school. 

Adolescence is usually associated with the teenage years.The average age of onset of puberty,there are many changes in the body.
When everyone wants to have freedom , try first kiss , to drink , partying ,enjoying life , 
to play prank with friends .

The story is blend of emotions - love, friendship,anger, loss, Grief, Passion, Betrayal, Innocence, Trust, learning lessons.
There are many funny elements in it. 

I like the character of Ghanshyam - cool, and naughty type (a spoiled brat) .
Very well written with excellent character development. I couldn't put it down and read it cover to cover in just a day.
I WILL RATE THIS BOOK 4.5 OUT OF 5 STARS. I will recommend this book to all.
