    Ruby is an awesome Feeling and a Thought to be Nurtured !

    I have known the author Laxmi for almost two decades as a "sensitive thinker" and a person with "very strong reasoning powers" who is also blessed with a "super imaginative" mind.

    Liked it!

    The many lives of Ruby Iyer is a Young Adult thriller about a headstrong teenager desperate to rescue her friend thus uncovering the plot behind a falling city. She gets groped, pushed to death, transformed, manipulated and drawn into circumstances. Through the first few chapers, the more she wanted to stay strong just for the heck of it and the more she tried to suppress her physical and emotional weariness, there was one thing I wanted to do. Give her a tight slap! Annoyingly, she is the pr...
