Book Review

Meg Pokrass

Somehow, in a few sentences, Sahana Ahmed is able to show us the fragile human condition.

Humra Quraishi

Sahana Ahmed is the Begum of flash fiction.

Amit Chaudhuri

There's much humour, acuity, and unforgiving shrewdness in the observations and writing.

bookGeeks India

Funny, witty, hilarious, quirky, classy, and romantic! This book delivered everything that I can ever expect from a chick-lit.


Contemporary and young. The most wonderful writing I have read this month at least.

Vinita Agrawal

Such an enjoyable love story! The verses on the different types of skirts were delightful.

Samar Khan

A smooth, peppy, feel-good story. Sahana has a very visual way of writing that makes the book an easy read. Don’t miss it.

Varun Grover

A breezy coming-of-age story. Beautifully written.
