    a teenage book: must read

    Plot
    ‘I took the test and prayed for the colour of the lines on the strip to stay as they were. But they did not. The test was positive. I felt my entire world come crashing down around me.’
    Meet Ananya Sharma, not your regular, teenage girl-next-door. Sure, she loves hanging out with her friends and engaging in whispered confidences at sleepovers, but when it comes to boys, she has competition on her mind rather than romance.
    At school, she is passionate about math and the sciences,
    and co...

    Excellent first book!

    I read "Ananya" with much anticipation as I had heard good things about it from some of my friends. I was not disappointed. I enjoyed the journey the writer takes one on - in this short and impactful book. The writer uses a different style of writing as she covers the year in the life of Ananya - the first felt like a giddy teenager was writing it - it was hopeful and even funny. The second part deals with the despair faced by the protagonist and the writing reflects that well. The final piec...

    Thought-provoking, inspiring, self exploratory rendering of a growing girl

    Shilpa Gupta, in her maiden fiction attempt, has addressed a plethora of important yet complex issues abundant in a teenage girl’s world, and presented them in her simplified and endearing work ‘Ananya’. Like most young girls, Ananya is idealistic, focussed yet dreamy, and lives with her perfect family, when she is unexpectedly hit by one unfortunate incident that hurries her into a spell of more misfortunes. Thus totally broken and spirit dampened, Shilpa Gupta’s Ananya overpowers these adve...

    Bitter-Sweet indeed !

    What strikes you the most after you're done reading this book, is just how relatable the character of Ananya is ! I congratulate the author for touching upon such a sensitive issue, and for dealing with it in such a liberating and thought provoking way. Also, the book conveys that its time we moved on to finding ways of dealing with such incidents rather than being stuck with the taboo itself.

    All in all a very easy and fantastic read. Highly recommended for all readers just to have a taste...
