Blemishing the Odds - Love Story of Kids

Though some books won't give you extraordinary story, it will you attached till end, because of the emotional quotient of the content. 'Blemishing the odds' by Harish Penumarthi is one such book which makes you feel nostalgic about your childhood.

Book blurb
Say hello to Raghav, an immature, insensitive person who is apathetic about everyone else except himself. His life revolves around his parents and his friends. He is among the bad books of all his Teachers.
Until one day, when Trisha, a new entrant; mesmerises him at the very first glance. He finds a friend, savior, nurturer and an inamorata in her. Just when he thinks that everything has been set out in a picture perfect manner, life throws a series of ghastly surprises at him. Will he change for good or stick to his immature stand of “My Life, my rules” and screw it all up?
This tale journeys across all the ups and downs a student could possibly encounter. The transformations that a student may endure, the courage and guts one needs to have in order to dodge all predicaments and eventually sketch the perfect end to all his agonies.
Harish has very well provided blurb with what expected from story point of view. Book will take you through journey of mischievous boy to serious teen. Author has finished story with sweet ending. And things partly solved for Raghav at the end.  Author has intently kept end at point from where he can start another part of Raghav's life. (All the best for the same)

Story may not seem new to reader but it will make tickle while reading mischievous did of kids in school. No matter how much we earn today or how high we reach, those careless days will never come back. We always wanted to age up fast and become adult, but once we became adult we realised what we wanted was a mirage.
