No matter how strong a person potrays himself to be, deep down we all need love and care.
Megha is the all rounder in the school, always first in class, parts of a sports team and other extracurricular activities.
But Megha's personal life is not all rainbows and unicorns.
Her parents are always arguing, she finds herself in an unhealthy relationship and all the school work is taking a toll on her mental health.
Megha needs to learn how to find peace of mind and love for herself before it'stoo late.
Dying To Live is a fictional novel by Monisha K. Gumber.
This book was a little bit disappointing compared to the first one.
Although I'm fond of the message passed through this book, it was mundane and boring, and the writing was average.
I did not like Megha because of her snobbish attitude and her lack of compassion for other people's feelings.
But she's also in high school during this point, and it's something to be expected from some high schoolers.
All the other characters again we're just average with conflicting emotions that left me very confused. The only consistent character was the father.
This is more of a self help when it comes to the second part of the story which I liked because that part actually provides some insight into how to be self aware and deal with emotions.
However, there was one point where I would have DNF'd the book.
She was asked to forget about the abuse, forgive him and move on?? What are we teaching women??
But I was glad at the end she took the stand for herself rather than listening to a ridiculous advise like this.
The book overall was ok, but could have been written better. 🦄🦄🦄
