A while back Blogadda sent across this teenage drama novel for review purpose. Lots of pink, black and white on the cover page surely screams “Teenage Puppy Love/Teen Issues”.
What does the back cover say?
Tiana’s school year has just started and looks bleak already. Her boyfriend is concerned they ‘don’t connect anymore’, her best friends are being super nasty, her lunch group has been taken over by newcomers, and the final nail in the coffin : a blast from the past, whom she believed she had left behind forever, has moved to Hill View High.
Will anything go right for Tiana as she juggles friends old and new, tries to stay in her teacher’s good books, and, most importantly, attempts to keep all the boys at bay while she figures out her own feelings?
Find out in this funny yet moving sequel to the bestselling Pink or Black, as Tishaa brings alive all the high drama at high school with wit and understanding.
My reading experience..
The story revolves around a teenage rich girl Tiana, who belongs to a reputed boarding school, has the hot dudes of the school falling in love with her, has a good reputation with teachers and belongs to the most famous group of the school. However this perfect life is not so perfect as the story unleashes high teenage drama in high school.
From the beginning of the story I could think of a lot of Bollywood and Hollywood movies to relate this novel with. From Kuch Kuch Hota hai, Student of the Year to High School Musical. However this did not help me create an imaginary visualization of the whole scenario, since the characters and scene arrangement just does not look like an Indian boarding school scene to me.
It comes as a strong contrast for an Indian setup, but as you keep reading everything syncs in. The story is what I call “sweet and simple” with lots of puppy love, friend fights, teacher dramas and of course school competitions. I wouldn’t mind reading this over a cup of coffee, as its light headed and a cheerful read.
For some this might remind you of your school and college days, as such reads surely leave you nostalgic.
My Verdict :
One time read, light, short and a cheerful teenage drama.
I’d like to read Pink and Black part 2!
Overall Rating :
