The Boy who loved

The Boy who loved

Select Preferred Format
Overview

The only thing you cannot plan in life is when and who to fall in love with . . .
Raghu likes to show that there is nothing remarkable about his life-loving, middle-class parents, an elder brother he looks up to, and plans to study in an IIT. And that’s how he wants things to seem-normal.
Deep down, however, the guilt of letting his closest friend drown in the school’s swimming pool gnaws at him. And even as he punishes himself by hiding from the world and shying away from love and friendship, he feels drawn to the fascinating Brahmi-a girl quite like him, yet so different. No matter how hard Raghu tries, he begins to care . . .
Then life throws him into the deep end and he has to face his worst fears.
Will love be strong enough to pull him out?
The Boy Who Loved, first of a two-part romance, is warm and dark, edgy and quirky, wonderfully realistic and dangerously unreal.
