The last year of school was supposed to be a stressful mess, but Sathya never expected it would get this stressful or this messy. He’s pissed off with his parents, his best friend is convinced something is wrong with him, and there’s a new guy with a pretty face and dazzling eyes, and Sathya just can’t seem to ignore him.
Or rather, Sathya doesn’t want to ignore him.

This was such a beautiful book. I loved it, when I started reading, I couldn’t stop until I was finished. It was a lovely story.
Sathya and his classmates are on their final year of school, dealing with conflicts on their own. But when a new guy comes to the class, Sathya’s attention is instantly caught by the stranger.
The plot wasn’t too complicated, but the sweetness of the characters was what made the story so special. Sathya was a little bitter and it was so nice to see how slowly he was letting someone crawl into his heart and change some of the darkness inside him. I loved the moments they shared, how subtle and sweet they were. It felt realistic, very beautiful and at the same time there was a kind if sadness about some of the issues address by the book, but still the overall feeling was a hopeful one. I think friendship was nicely portray here, and the relevance it was given to it, was one of the things I liked the most. The support that can mean so much for someone in need.
There isn’t angst here. I can easily see any reader enjoying reading it. I certainly did. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a sweet YA book.
