About the Author:
Monisha K. Gumber is the author of a newly released teen book called Sick of Being Healthy that received an unexpectedly high positive response from the kids all over India as well as Bahrain where she lives with her husband and two children. Surprised by the warmth and support from her so many readers, she realised that Indian teens still don’t have feel-good contemporary stories that they could relate to. Yes, there are romance novels and English classics and even fun books like the Wimpy Kid series but most books meant for teens end up being a lecture on Moral Science. Monisha does not think there is anything wrong in those, but that’s just not her style.
Monisha wants to write books that are entertaining and yet make a difference in the lives of kids who are under more pressure than ever before. So, this second book in the series, called Dying to Live, is an attempt to talk about a burning problem of youth suicide and how millions of students succumb to the pressure of ever-increasing expectations from well-meaning parents and teachers. The book has a light undertone but the lessons inside are serious and hopefully profound.
Being the daughter of a retired army officer, she is greatly influenced by the great Indian Army and her books reflect that. She won many National- and State-level drawing competitions as a student and went on to do the usual MBA. She has many years of corporate experience in the field of Marketing and HR but is now gradually giving it all up to pursue her new love – writing. She wishes to be loved as a writer who has a sense of humour but still writes meaningful stories. Monisha is also passionate about alternative healing and wishes true health and happiness for all.She has a growing community of more than a hundred thousand online followers and you can check out her popular videos, pictures and posts on facebook.

‘Dying to Live’ is a story about Megha, a strong, determined girl who has a bee in her bonnet about becoming the best. She has the best of both worlds- she is good in academics and she aces the extracurriculars. But still, she sulks and does something unthinkable. Teenage years are considered to be the fragile years because that is when one’s personality is molded. Megha’s strong-mindedness helps her overcome the obstacles and that is what the story is all about.
I did not quite like the presentation of the text in the book, for the teenagers are not kids who love unorganized and random text. They prefer reading novels/ novellas that have the elements of the plot placed and timed accurately.
The editing of the book is fine and the artwork adds to the content. Overall, the book is worth one shot as you never know how it might surprise others.
Best wishes to the authoress!
I wasn’t very happy with the book cover for the sole reason that I found it too be overwhelming. So much was going on and it became difficult to concentrate on the central purpose of the cover design. That being said, it definitely sticks out as a catchy and interesting cover because of its blast of cover
Cover Rating – 3.5 / 5
The title was one of the most interesting things about the novel. It had everything that I was looking for as a reader and something more. Catchy, Interesting and Short. But to add to that, the contrast within the title itself was fascinating. ‘Death’ and ‘Life’ in one sentence. I googled this author and found that this is something she’s done with her other book as well.
Please continue this title trend. It’s amazing.
Title Rating – 5/5
The author was able to beautifully capture teenage experiences in a way that made me relive them. It is a stress buster but also comes with so many lessons that one can learn while reading the book. I loved the way the author made the language simple and intriguing at the same time.
This is one forte the author seems to master splendidly. At one point, I was really frightened that the story would take a negative turn and end tragically. However, with great relief, I can say that did not happen. Megha’s character fits beautifully into the plot and thankfully, she lives through.
A special mention to the illustrations! They were wonderful.
Rating – 5 / 5
Given that this book is for teenagers and about teenagers, I was pleasantly surprised. This is a one-of-a-kind book I have seen by an Indian author. Overall, a splendid effort.
Final Rating: 5 / 5
Verdict: Recommended for Teens!
However, I cannot overlook informal writing and poor literature. When I hand a book to a child, I want that child to adopt the knowledge the book has to offer and language is and will always be my priority. The editing errors are minimal, but other than that, the book is worth a read.
