An Awfully BIG Adventure_New

About the book: 

Seventeen-year-old Yoshita Ray has stopped believing in happily ever after and fairy tales ever since her mother abandoned her. But now that her father’s married again, Yoshita’s world is turned upside down by her new stepbrother, the ten-year-old true believer, Tanay Mukherjee.

On his tenth birthday, Tanay makes a wish which whisks them away to a magical land where all the fairy tale characters are real! While Yoshita wants to do nothing but leave this place behind, her stepbrother wants to stay.

Will the rather unfortunately timed adventure tear the stepsiblings apart or will it play a hand in bringing them closer together?

My thoughts:

Aniesha’s writing and storytelling was very beautifully done. I’m  a big believer in happily ever afters and I have always loved the fairy tales. When I was a child, I used to love reading those magical stories , and now again I had a chance to read such a magical story. This book reminded me of the various children’s books which I used to enjoy so much. While reading this book I was again lost into the magical world which is full of possibilities. This book is about how extraordinary things can happen to ordinary people.

While this book is written for children, I am sure that adults will also enjoy this story. This book provides an escape from the day to day stress and may be for a short period of times takes us to the magical world full of adventures and happily ever after.

My most favourite part about this book are its characters and the way the author writes about them. These characters reminds me if my childhood and my relationship with my siblings, especially with my brothers.

An Awfully Big Adventure is a short and sweet story that’s bound to leave the reader with a smile on the face.
