Summary Of The Book
The protagonist of the story, a conservative and young man named Akash, has a penchant for intelligent women. His world turns upside down when he visits a discotheque named Thrive with his best friend, Aditya, and meets Aleesha. Aleesha is new to the city of Mumbai, and is considered to be a spoiled brat owing to the pampered upbringing she has had.
Aleesha and Akash exchange Blackberry pins and slowly progress to chatting with each other on a daily basis. They soon begin to fall in love with each other. With help from their friends, the couple manages to meet each other often and they navigate through the hurdles and obstacles that every relationship harbours. However, things soon take a turn for the worse. It is up to Aditya to help his friends get their life and relationship back in order. But can he?
It Started With A Friend Request is more than just a love story. It explores the nuances of basic relationships and exemplifies true friendship, along with portraying base emotions like jealousy, hatred, insecurity and possessiveness, and interweaving a story of unrequited love alongside. This novel was published in 2013 and is based on a true story.
