The Girl Who Knew Too Much

An intriguing description of a love story and a tragedy of a pretty young girl playing together in this book makes it an interesting one. The reader is glued till the end to know the reality of it but is actually left questioning one’s own beliefs.

It starts with a question ‘Are you a believer or a cynic?’ and it leaves the reader with the same thought!!!

This is the story of a young girl who has lost her mother and is therefore depressed. She meets a guy named Harry who tries to convince her that she could be happy again if she listens to him. In an attempt to make her sure he narrates his own story to her. His story is about the love of his life and all the unbelievable things that one doubts. But still she clings on the hope that she may get her mother back. How the story turns out and if really, she can see her mother remains in the pages of the book.

What I realized, in matters of the heart, one shouldn’t wait.

By the time I reached home, I knew I was in love with her. It was an easy realization. Love is easy, Afterall. I think people make it tough by doubting it, asking too many questions.

A thousand deeds make a Miracle.

Something tightened in my chest. I said,” I always thought love was a game. You got to win it. But love is not a game. Love is a sacrifice. Love is letting go. And above all, love is dreaming the impossible, like bringing a dead man.
