I don't wear sunscreen by Kavipriya Moorthy

'I don't wear sunscreen' by Kavipriya Moorthy an unusual title for one unusual story. I got this book as gift from Author in exchange of unbiased review. Frankly speaking if I had to buy this book I might have skipped it for sure, looking at only title.

This is the story of a normal girl Laksha, whose life was pretty normal and sorted out beautifully. Her best friend Pallavi was all she had when story started. When they were about to enter to college life, Pallavi met a boy and started having feeling for him. Laksha being over-possessive forced Pallavi not to talk to that guy. They both went to different cities for studies, Laksha to Mumbai for architecture and Pallavi near Pondicherry for engineering. Life after that became completely different at both end. 

Laksha went for internship and met a guy, built a good relationship with that guy. She also got a job offer from that boy's cousin firm. Her relationship with Pallavi was becoming weaker because Pallavi was getting depressed for not getting placed. Story went in both parallel, and suddenly one fine day, the boy Laksha fell for stopped talking her; and when she when to join her job she found out that she was sacked. Other side Pallavi suddenly disappeared from Laksha's life. 

Life became hell for Laksha. She broke down to the core. Her parents showed great support and made her came out of her depressing state. Reasons behind twist happen with Laksha were kept in Gray just to increase interest, and it was revealed in last 3-4 pages.

I read 100 pages to know what exactly happened but author hinted few things and left readers to guess remaining parts. I personally found it dis-satisfactory. Could have been much better. Talking about rating:
  1. Cover - 2.5 / 5 (Cover and title both are dull)
  2. Content - 3 / 5 (I expected better ending) 
  3. Language - 2.5 / 5 
  4. Story Line - 3 / 5 
  5. Characters - 3 / 5
  6. Overall - 2.5 / 5
