This is the story of Two (2) nice people – People like you and me, and One (1) who is manipulative and has no scruples whatsoever!(here in forth, referred to as the villain)
The story is about Abhi & Aditi who are like any normal siblings, with their own camaraderie & contests, and how the ‘villain’ manipulates them.
It is interesting how to save themselves, and each other, they too learn the art of manipulation – and in this journey, discover themselves and finding joy in this dangerous game.
Now, special mention must be made for the fourth pivotal character, The Goon. I absolutely loved the goon, who was hired to intimidate the siblings, but ends being the ONE (& only person) in the story who unexpectedly has a moral compass.
This is an interesting read, and is well written, especially keeping in mind that it is by a First time Author.
The story is a very real portrayal of how people use each other for their own gain! In the end, Aditi sums it up very well, when she says –
“What was the harm,
if people were ready to be fooled themselves”
