A Bowlful of Butterflies- Ritu Lalit

Buy Book A Bowlful Of Butterflies by Ritu LalitAbout the Book:This is the heartwarming story of an inseparable threesome, Chandni, Amrit and Soma. The girls are an exciting bunch, but have a rather uneventful life in the sleepy town of Majhi Nagar. They are completely focused on their impending Class-XII boards, until Chandni’s handsome cousin Jogi comes to live with her family. His presence brings to the surface many hidden truths the girls must deal with, like Chandni’s attraction for her cousin, her jealousy when her best friend and cousin fall in love, and the fact that her eldest brother is gay. The story spans a period of four months, in which Chandni and her family deal with many complex modern day relationship issues. A Bowlful of Butterflies deals with serious issues but is written in a lighthearted vein. It is an engrossing tale dealing with the transition of Chandni and her friends from schoolgirls to womanhood.

Author- Ritu Lalit

I enjoyed reading this book, i picked this up looking at the title, i thought it to be some kind of children literature initially, but flipping through the 220 pages i realized, what actually can be the connecting factors for the teens, even i might have come across some queries in my teens but at that time our perceptions were not so clear... more or less the well etched mordern day relationship issues and Chandu's description throughout the story keeps the reader busy... i recommend this to the mothers of teens... so as to get a broader insigt into the world today i'll rate this 4/5.
