Sometimes life brings you at a crossroad, where you have no choice but to live every day as if it was your last one. Naina was at such a crossroad! An orphan, she did not have much to look forward to in life, until she fell in love. Love gave her wings and she started to fly, only to come crashing down as the wind beneath her wings turned into a storm. She tries putting an end to her now wretched existence, but fate has some other plans for her. She comes to know that she has limited time to live and decides to start living everyday instead of merely surviving. She lives every moment without worrying about the future she does not have or the past that could not be undone. She falls in love once again, this time with life! Will fate respect her fortitude?

It is a story of Naina and her friends. How everything changes for her and she endures everything.
The story kind of starts at the end, and the moves back... which is interesting.
The whole story revolves around three orphans, Naina, Kusuma, and Raghav, who live in Shanti Amma's orphanage. It is about their lives, happiness, loneliness, friendship, and struggles.
The characterization is good and is well narrated.
The relationship of Naina is nicely portrayed.
The writing style is good, though at times I found the book a bit predictable or slow.
Overall, it is a nice story for a one-time read.
My rating for the book is 3.5/5.
