    I really enjoyed reading this. The author is a school mate of mine, but we hung out in different groups and went separate ways after school. The book is a collection of blog posts from the 2000s, so it's a bit old. From the comments I can see it had a wide readership. Wish I knew about it earlier! Her honesty is just disarming, I really appreciate how she went out on a limb and opened up about her experiences (school, college, work, family life). Thought it was really brave. And it's very humorous I really enjoyed reading this. The author is a school mate of mine, but we hung out in different groups and went separate ways after school.

And it's very humorous, comedy is just the hardest thing to get right but she had me laughing with her recollections on her escapades. And finally, I wish I remembered half of what she does of my school years. Most of it is a complete blank. The list (and quality) of Malayalam books Swathi read during her primary school years is just amazing! It was year 7 I think when I started reading and that too English books. Wish I had read more Malayalam books in my teens, have a lot of catching up to do!

    Very engaging writing style. The author has written her experiences in a way that most people can relate to, without being dramatic. Enjoyed reading the book ! Looking forward to your next published work soon.

    Very easy reading. Simple and straight from the heart musings of a young woman from Kerala now settled in Ireland. Originally taken from her blog spanning several years. Many people from same background will find their feelings and thoughts echoed in the pages of this short book.
