Firsts are always special and today I am sharing a book review which is the debut book of a friend.
“Places change, minds change, people change, memories don’t”…This is the tagline of the book “A Girl in the New Town”. It is a children’s book and published as paperback and Kindle edition too. It is well suited for 6-10-year-old children. Kids who are comfortable in simple English vocabulary will grasp it very easily.
Author: Alpana Deo, popularly known as Mother’s Gurukul Mom (http://mothersgurukul.com)
Genre: Children, Self-help
The plot of the story is very optimistic. It is a story of a 7-year old girl, Ria who is skeptical and insecure about moving to another city leaving her friends behind. The book is divided into 12 chapters. The story talks about how her parents handled the situation, and made her feel comfortable about the transition. The narration is brilliant and vivid. One can actually visualize things happening in front of them while reading the book.
The dialogues are crisp and to the point. The author has used basic English which makes the book ideal for the kids to read and understand. The writing style is engaging and the readers who have shifted from one city or country to another will definitely connect with it. Unique plot, beautiful narration and a great message not only for the kids but also for their parents makes this book an interesting read.
Without being a spoiler, I would recommend all the parents and children to read this wonderful book together as it has a takeaway for both the parties. It is a simple and quick read and you can find it on Amazon:
I wish Alpana all the very best for her first book and looking forward to reading more from her.
