Blurb:
Caught in the turmoil of an Underrated Love and an Overrated Infatuation, Raj, a young boy with larger than life dreams, from a small town of Kanpur, is at the cross road of life, where every road ahead leads to nothing but a Dead-end.

Through the grueling course of circumstances, he is subjected to the bitter tests of life, where he fails to justify his one decision of parting ways with Mahek.

But, when Mahek flashes out of his life, leaving him all alone, the guilt of not been forgiven by her, ruins his soul; and that frustration leads him into seclusion, devoid of even his best buddies – Rohan and Rahul.

Failed love, broken friendship, a hurt ego and lost soul – Raj is doomed to darkness.

With no ray of hope ahead, just when Raj is about to give up on life, he come across a note, written to him by his favorite professor, “Never give up Raj… Because… Every Raindrop is a Hope” which brings Raj face to face with his own self.

Why Love that makes Life beautiful, turns into Satan? Why friendship one fine day loses all its meaning? Why on the crowded roads of Mumbai city, Raj finds himself walking all alone?

Will Raj challenge Life and fight back with the sword of Hope or will he take the easy way out by succumbing to the arduous tests of time. (Via Infibeam)

Verdict: As the blurb clearly states, this story revolves around Raj, his life, his friends and his love life. What happens when he gets caught in the turmoil of underrated love and overrated infatuation? Is he able to sort himself out of the mess created in his life? Will he succeed in doing so? The answers to all these questions lie in this book.

Positives:
1) Good story line.
2) Great vocab.
3) Nice moral and teaches a lot about friendship, life and love.

Negatives:
1) Nice cover picture but could have been better.
2) Few editing mistakes, rest all fine.
3) Blurb is nicely put up.
To sum up with the review it’s a good story that teaches a great deal of life, its ups and downs, hardships, failures and how to tackle them without letting your ego spoil everything and your relations. It tells you to cling onto that one drop of hope and never lose it.
