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.

POSITIVE POINTS :

* Unputdownable for teens.

*  Simply written and narration is well-organized.

*  Fast paced and easy read.

* A one-time read.

NEGATIVE POINTS :

*  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.

CONCLUSION:

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!

Rating- 3/5
