Read on to know Moon’s love story.

My Thoughts  : First few pages of the book keep you intrigued as to what is going to happen next. But after a few pages, it becomes monotonous .The language used is very casual in the book and the book is like any other love story. Nothing new or nothing worth spending money on this one.  Totally disappointed.
This book can be given a miss.
