~> What I like about this book?

It your one-sit read! The storyline is easy to catch up and the book no-where stretches with the plots. The characters are fun and interesting as well. The book is very light-hearted and can be enjoyed with a smile throughout. You surely wish to give a try to this one!

~Writing Style:

The use of normal easy English is used in the book. There could be more detailing about the characters, scenarios and the thoughts and feelings expressed/felt by the characters.

~ The improvements that can be made:

While the book is very engaging, the plot lines ahead can be predicted (SOMETIMES). People sometimes like when a little more intermediate language is used.
