Also, the story revolves around Pranati, Shalini, Jasmine, and Sameer. Her school project about their town's historical spots gets them to Old Mister Marshall’s house. The house has much more mystery than ever. Just find it ou!!!
I loved the plot. It's amazingly full of suspense and surprises. First of all, The author has used simple and interesting language with which one can easily connect with. It's a story of schoolgirls working on their project of Old Mister Marshall’s house where they discover the mystery. It's a short book which won't take much time and you'll finish it in a go. I loved how the author narrated each and everything. Be it Mansion or cricket. One can easily visualize each and every single thing. I loved the Narration of the Mansion. How a small conversation and clearing out doubts can easily change a person and their relations. This is what I learned. How Laila and Jasmine talked about their secrets and their equation changed and they became friends. The trio of Pranati, Shalini and Laila was also Interesting. The Ragging scene, cricket match, mystery and much more interesting elements were added by the author. The pace of the story is good, so is the tempo. The author also managed to create strong characters. The writing style of the author was impressive and interesting.
Overall it's a small, witty read full of Mysteries.
The book is for teenage or young and school going readers.
The language is simple and easy to follow with simple words. A short book, it can be read by teenagers and even adults.
I actually enjoyed reading the book. It is unputdownable and the suspense keeps popping up off and on.
The author has tied all the loose ends and given the book an ending which got me thinking, will there be a sequel????
Planning to read more books from the author.
As blurb suggested Laila, our protagonist used to come for lone time in an old mansion of her city Chandanisarai. She used to be a big fan of Indian cricket team captain. When she entered in 8th Standard things changed drastically. Her favorite spot - mansion suddenly got new occupants, who didn't allow outsiders to enter the house. Her school suddenly got renovated, her best friend Shalini drifted away from Laila. New students & cricket coach were also big addons. On top of that Laila got history project for which she selected Mansion purposefully to solve the mystery.
A very light story, that made me go to the last page without knowing it was coming. Though no big ups & downs or climax I there in the story, writing style made sure no boring moment awaiting readers. I liked cricket match part, which made me feel like listening to radio commentary.
This book is not for every reader. If someone has just started reading books or you want to introduce your teenage kid or younger brother/sisters to books, this could be a good starter. The plot is good and the storytelling could have been better. It is a short book and won’t take much time to finish. I completed it in one go in around three hours. The mature or middle age readers or someone who is into books from ages would not find the pleasure of reading. The book is for teenage or young and school going readers.
