#BookReview :: Things Your Mother Never Told you about Love by Juhi Pande

We all know that girls love boys who love girls, and then they turn into women who love men who love women. And no matter how much one would like to clutter their life with work or distract themselves with friends or treks or travels, at the end of the day it is the matters of the heart that take control of our deeper senses.

Forget algebra. Love can be the hardest, most complicated thing on earth.

This is a book about growing up, of learning and un-learning, losing and receiving, crying and smiling, but most of all loving. From the first awkward teenage days to discovering boys to falling in love and getting your heart broken, Juhi Pande tells you the Things Your Mother Never Told You About Love. Guaranteed to lift the spirit and add a spring in your step, this book tells us everything us girls need to know to get us through the rough seas.

Frankly speaking that when I picked this book from RHI’s Review List, I thought this would be either a chic-lit or a YA fiction and I was a bit disappointed at first when I realised that it was non-fiction. However since I had already picked it up, I decided to read it anyway since its around just 200 pages.

Divided into 18 chapters, the author speaks about different aspects of love and infatuation that every girl goes through during the teenage years. Those years are such a vulnerable stage in everybody’s life that this book just might help a girl to realize that she is not alone in whatever she is going through. 

The author being a girl and have gone through this herself, one would think that it must have been an easy task to write a book about it. But I am sure that it wasn’t that easy because the author has delivered her messages with honesty and a touch of humour, making it interesting for the readers. And though this book is more of a girl’s thing… guys can pick it up too - if nothing then to atleast gain some insight into a girl’s mind that they claim to be a total mystery.

Overall, this non-fiction makes for an interesting read.
