My verdict :
The story line revolves around five friends, who have met accidently on a occasion, the friendship is built so rapidly but Is broken due to few misunderstandings, days pass by, and after years a shocking news leads them to gather again.
The book has few different and difficult terms. Although five lead characters are there, the narration is being done by single person, the story is smooth and long going, it slow down in a moment, but end of the book, your predictions are wrong and you have really something unexpected in the end. This makes it more interesting and wonderful. The book is bowl of emotions, poured so well like romance, fun, fights, hurts, relationship friendship, angry. The author has done great job.
Hence every book worm can read this book 🙂
