Teenage life – possibly is all about what you want and can’t have. And then about what you receive and misuse.    — Jonathan Lethem

’18 Via Teen – Be yourself’ – As the name depicts it all. It revolves around the life aspects of a teenager.
It is all about the rollercoaster rides , a teen goes through after entering a certain phase of their life – Eighteen. A more maturing phase.

The book consists of twenty three different examples in the form of short stories , to describe well , the psychology , the hope , aspirations , apprehensions , insecurities , dilemmas , sensitiveness and ofcourse a new form of budding love – teenage love ; each related with a phase , every teenager goes through.

Each story consists a piece of a message , along with a self-written quote on the very top; adds a cherry to the cake.

Though the book being a very first of its own and written by a new and budding author , it lacks the element of interest , and hence unable to bind a reader for a long time to the book.

Sidestepping all the minor errors and grammatical glitches , in writing , one could genuinely read it and it could end up as a strong motivator for teens , who find it hard to survive the hardships that come in their lives as an obstacle.


* Unputdownable for teens.

*  Simply written and narration is well-organized.

*  Fast paced and easy read.

* A one-time read.


*  Minute grammatical mistakes.

*  Few stories give a feel of ‘could have been written better’ or ‘could have been ended better’.

*  Cover-design could have been designed more accordingly or attractively.

* Stories could have been introduced with more of the interesting element.


Although the book holds few negative points, still the author has made an appreciable entry in the literature world.

More books are yet to come of the respective author ( We, readers hope ) , and readers like me will definitely be waiting for more extraordinarily and polished-ly written books in the near future.

All the very best!
