Letters In the Rain by Anubhav Shrivastava & Ananya Roy

Title: Letters In the Rain

Authors: Anubhav Shrivastava
Ananya Roy

Publisher: Rumour Books India

Blurb: Quite early in his life, Aman had been labelled a 'weirdo'. His side-parted, oil soaked hair and gawky physique made him the butt of jokes among his peers. There is nothing spectacular in his life—he studies all day, has never had an interaction with a girl that lasted more than five minutes, and scribbles his inner musings into his best friend, a personal diary.
Deep down, however, the guilt of being considered a social killjoy by the society starts to have a negative impact on him. When forced out of his solitary shell into the action-infused warehouse that is 'college', Aman's life takes a drastic U-Turn. Owing to a Chemistry project, he is forced to partner up with Kiara—a cheerful, carefree soul who tucks away her dark, brooding past upon arriving in Manipal. What follows is a series of awkward encounters and quirky adventures; ones that throw them in the deep end and make them face their worst fears.

Review: “Letters In The Rain” is the second book by Anubhav, his first book “One Last Time” Was just an amazing I really liked his writing style. And this time also I can say he managed to stay at his mark and again impressed me by his tale.for me this is the first book by Ananya Roy and I’m impressed with her too.
The book is quite small in size but the story which is present in the book was just amazing. I must say that the book cover looks great.
The story starts with the boy called Aman a topper, Aman doesn’t like to interact with other people around him and his Parent's also worried about his behavior against other people around him. When he joined the college he never changed anything in his behavior neither his Personality and then He meets Kiara Mehta there. She is a hazel-eyed girl who needs only good food and good music to be happy. Her happy exterior conceals a dark past. And with the entry of Kiara into the Aman’s life and things start to change. Authors had shown the perfect college life in this book.
I really enjoyed the book, I bet you won’t be bored while reading this book and yes I personally recommend you to read Anubhav’s first book “One Last Time”.
