What happens when you fall in love at first sight? That too in college, which is supposed to be the best time of one’s life. But is it the best place to find love too?
Viraj falls head over heels in love with his classmate Nimisha, who could make boys on campus go crazy. While his friends Punit and Sahil just want to have fun – despite poor mark-sheets, grace marks to pass, and other everyday adventures – Viraj wants more from his life and love.
Life has led Viraj to the edge of a cliff. He has a choice to make – to forget everything and jump, or fight.
What brought him here? An unrequited love, encounters with law, or the dilemma of grace marks? Where does Viraj’s story eventually end?
Welcome to 37 + Grace Marks, Viraj’s journey to discover that there is more to life than marks.
37+ Grace Marks is YA Romance fiction novella which revolves around love, college life, and teenage problems. It’s a story about a young guy named Viraj, an engineering student, and his friends. His life was all good when he joined the college but the things change for him as he falls in love, at first sight with a confident, pretty girl named Nimisha. It’s about engineering college and the happenings there, those boring days, the funny moments and pressure of studies.
Coming up to the title of the book it is interesting but for me, the book could have been better with some other title. The subtitle is what I loved more than the title. The cover is catchy, apt and suggests us about the genre and content. The language used in the book is simple but there was something I didn’t like about that..I mean though the language was simple and easy to comprehend still I didn’t connect well with it. There were few errors too. The narration is done in First Person and is done well but could be improved in next book for better reading experience. The Author has tried well to portray the characters. However, Characters of the book lack depth and that’s the reason why I was unable to relate to them.
This book is simple and has nothing new to give in the plates of the readers. However, the storytelling is something that can bind you with the book. Scenes are written well and they flow smoothly while the story goes off sync in the mid pages.
Overall it’s a light read and is ideal for all those people who likes YA with a common story and easy language.
My Ratings– (2/5) stars
