Blurb : 

What happens when you fall in love at first sight? That too in college, which is supposed to be the best time of one’s life. But is it the best place to find love too?

Viraj falls head over heels in love with his classmate Nimisha, who could make boys on campus go crazy. While his friends Punit and Sahil just want to have fun – despite poor mark-sheets, grace marks to pass, and other everyday adventures – Viraj wants more from his life and love.

Life has led Viraj to the edge of a cliff. He has a choice to make – to forget everything and jump, or fight.

What brought him here? An unrequited love, encounters with law, or the dilemma of grace marks? Where does Viraj’s story eventually end?

Welcome to 37 + Grace Marks, Viraj’s journey to discover that there is more to life than marks.

Review :

This book is all about the life of Viraj, who hails from Pune to an engineering college with an aim to bring his dreams into reality. His friends Punit and Sahil, proves to be the friends for life in all circumstances. Then a fine day, when the semester was reaching its end, he meets Nimisha and falls head over heels in love with her at first sight. And then Viraj’s life travels through a new course with some unexpected turns. Further the book moves on to find the answer for whether he won the love of his girl.

37+ Grace Marks – a regular romance book which takes you back to your college days. These days engineering colleges has become a backdrop for most of the books and this book is also the  one under that tag. The author has spiced up the plot with dreams, confusions, friendship, fights etc. Though the book was well knitted, it misses it’s coherence at some chapters. The characters were well narrated and the first person narration helps us to hook up with the book. And the simple language makes it an easy read. The story starts slowly and so it takes some time to travel with the book, then the plot gears up when it approaches the end. Also the author has tried to convey some important life lessons through this book. The cover page and the title very well suits the book. The blurb gives a clear vision of what’s hidden deep inside the book.

Verdict : A light read to bring back your memories of college days filled up with silly fights, love, crush, grace marks etc.
