18 via teen is a book by Shreyasi Ritika framing many short stories that everyone can relate to their teen. When I consider it as a frame, I should look each and every aspect here.
Starting with the cover of this book, the cover doesn’t mesmerize me, there are the lot of things that a publisher can relate to teen in 18 via teen, that can grasp the attention of every reader. Although I heard many times, “Never judge a book by its cover”. But I personally feel cover of the book should show character (stories inside) of the book.
When I am talking about the soul of this book, Obviously the stories. the writer put a lot of efforts in justifying every situation we went through and I want to congratulate her for the efforts she put in framing a book, as it is not that much easy to cover every situation we have faced in teen whether it be love, suffering, happiness, friendship, care and many more dilemma associated. In some of the stories, she put the correct emotions while justifying every situation well. But in some cases, I personally feel she was lagging behind in some stories. She tried to describe some emotions in the story two & fro which was not needed, people may lose interest while reading same things again. And writers deeply involved in writing this story could be the reason that she flue in emotion and forget to grasp reader attention here.
Words and language used in the stories are simple but effective.
I must say writer put her soul forming a new soul(stories inside the book). what she felt, assumed while looking at the scenarios, she has done a little justice.
