Description

Mayil Will Not Be Quiet is a book that is based on the diary of a twelve year old, who is outspoken and curious, and details her experiences as she grows up.

Summary Of The Book

In this book, Mayil Will Not Be Quiet, the readers are introduced to Mayil, who is a twelve year old girl going through certain experiences in her life. This book is actually Mayil’s diary, which is given to her by her father, after getting tired of her constant prattling.

Mayil begins to pen down her experiences in school, which include rigorous projects, assignments, gangs, gossiping, and being harassed by boys, one of whom she even slaps. She also notes down her desire to move out on her own, and just enjoy life.

Mayil also writes about other things in her diary. Some of these notes are about her grandfather and father cooking, as her father lost his job and her mother got one. She also speaks of her brother, who has a liking for karate. Due to her perky nature, the experiences noted down by Mayil in her diary will keep readers in splits throughout. Although this book is written for pre-teens, children in the age range of 9-10 will greatly enjoy reading this book as well.

Mayil will not be Quiet and shouldn't be!

I bought the book as a gift for my 11 year old niece and we both ended up loving the book!

Mayil is someone most of us growing up in middle class India can relate to. In my opinion, that in itself is a commendable achievement, seeing the number of books with too-precocious-to-be-true kind of protagonists. The book is very appealing because, it approaches adolescence in an honest, child like way.

Mayil- as colourful as her words

Very nicely written...delves beautifully into the life of a typical 12 year old, exploring her questions, doubts, joys, confusions and fears in a way each one of us would be able to relate to...and invariably experienced around that stage of our lives...took me back to many many moments from my school days and vivid memories of my friends and classmates...
