4.0 out of 5 stars Good one
By Honey on 12 December 2020
"Life's not always fair . . .
and neither are we"

Ever since childhood, we've grown up seeing on television, reading in books that the only acceptable skin tone is fair. We grew up believing that we can only be considered beautiful if our skin is of a certain shade. Thanks to the whitening creams, the unrealistic European beauty standards and the ignorance and inability of our prejudiced society to see beyond these superficial standards. I was wondering if I will ever come across a book that not only brings something different to the table but also challenges these societal beliefs that have become the norm.

Unfair by Rasil Ahuja is just the book I was looking for. A story worth reading just for the message it sends.

The story revolves around Lina who wants to be a part of the seventh-grade annual play but her teacher, Miss Deepa thinks she is not of the right shade to fit the part. All Lina wants is a fair chance to try out for the role. Lina becomes distraught and withdrawn and goes to her best friend Meher who finds maths more fascinating than her best friend's play or her problems. The lack of support soon puts their friendship on the line but the importance of dismantling colorism in a society that claims to be diverse brings them together, stronger than ever.

I enjoyed every bit of this story. Maybe I am biased because I fell in love with the concept even before reading it but I won't shy away from giving credit where its due. The plot is interesting and has a lot of potential and space for development. I praise the author for choosing such a wonderful and important topic to talk about. Both Lina's and Meher's character, though opposite, have been nicely portrayed where they came off as real people with real world problems that a lot of us can relate to.

The writing style is simple and easy yet completely capable of leaving a strong impact. The illustrations are beautiful and they make everything better.

Overall this is a great book for all ages and I would definitely recommend it to everyone, especially kids.

PS - I love the title and the cover. They do complete justice to the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Book view from the blog of Neil Binoy- A FEW LONG YEARS BLOGSPOT
By Neil Binoy on 5 December 2020
The swelteringly hot environment of the Delhi suburbs seems like an unlikely setting for an epic 183-page drama to unfold, but it is what it is. Rasil Ahuja has outdone herself bringing her real-life twelve-year-old dilemma with a bottle of fairness cream to justice with this sweet, sweet fictional realization. Told through commentary bouncing between Meher and Lina, through texts, snatches of conversation and online video calls, this book has been set to music -quite literally- that left me craving more. Despite its short size, the words flew off the pages in a delectable blend of a cracking friendship, a tub of fairness cream, annoying elder brothers (As always), and a very strong, yet simple, underlying message: Be fair. It is a message that resounds strongly throughout the book, highlighting the various racial prejudices that still exist in a diverse country such as India, through examples of bullying at school, discrimination by teachers. However, despite the seemingly dark topics taken in hand by this book, it is quite a cheerful, relatable book, smashing in the homeruns. An enjoyable read, and something I would definitely recommend. The bouncing commentary between friends makes it easy to see both sides of a story of desperation and drama, of friendships and ire. The wording and easy conversation in this book has made it easy to pick up and read. I only wish it were longer. A clear 10/10.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book for children
By D gupta on 4 December 2020
Life's not always fair . . .
and neither are we

Auditions are on for the seventh grade annual play. Mehar and Lina are childhood friends.
Lina is really excited for auditions, and wants to play the lead role of Juliet, but the drama teacher Miss Deepa seems to think Lina isn't the right shade for the part. All Lina wants is a #FAIRCHANCE to try out for the role.
I love the character of both the girls cool, confident and intelligent. They know how to handle the situation so it's good to read what Mehar will do? when her extroverted BFF Lina suddenly becomes distraught and withdrawn.
Will Meher find a solution to this problem and score #FRIENDSHIPGOALS?
This is one such inspirational book for children which encourages young kids to love themselves as you are because you are blessed with natural beauty. Let others know that there is no comparison between them.
I love the way the author tries to give a beautiful message of self-love and diversity through this book. Cover of the book and Illustrations are beautiful which makes this book more beautiful and I love the font style too.
I recommend this book to all kids so that they can understand that everyone deserves a fair chance.
I'm sure after reading this book every young girl and grown woman alike will fall in love with her.
