They attempt to defy all odds, but at what cost?
Peek inside the life of Manya Sharma’s blank canvas and watch as her life explodes into a kaleidoscope of colorful hues, only to fade to black.

My Review:
“Will you stay? ” is a story of a naive and shy girl named Manya Sharma. Manya’s character is shown as an introvert. Due to this she wasn’t feeble enough to express her feelings and emotions properly. Later she falls for a boy named Shreyansh who is haunted by his dark and depressive past which brings about the fact that the book is more about Shreyansh than Manya. The story depicts their journey by unveiling their self discovery.

Narration and Characterisation- Narration is simple and lucid with easy read. I found some errors and the book bit slow at some points yet being a debut book it can be ignored. Social issues like mental illness, depression, anxiety and bullying are all intriguingly depicted and I appreciate the authors for that. The characters of Manya and Shreyansh are abptly portrait with fine character development.

Overall it’s worth a read and I definitely recommend this book to the one’s who are suffering from depression and anxiety. This book holds some strong and beautiful thoughts.

Thanks to the author for sending me the review copy.✨
