Verdict: ☆☆☆☆ A very thought provoking book dealing with one of the most important issue rape in India. The best part of the book was it’s narration from the point of view of rape victims. It was highlighting the Victim’s mind. A must read book.

The defense lawyer encounters with obnoxious questions... As if, she had inveigled the innocent boys... As if, she's the one accused and her violators are seeking justice against her...

Akriti wins the case but refuses her culprit to have imprisonment.
Why does she do this?
What does she decide then?
Is this the decision of 'her' or 'raped mind'?

Review: The first look of the cover and Title attract you to read the book. A girl’s photo who is a rape victim really make you to read the book. The Blurb is again instigated you to read this book as it makes you wonder what will be the decision of rape Victim for his rapist. The story indicates about the social issue rape from the point of view of a young girl who is raped by her lover. The trauma faced by her was nicely written by the Author. The Court trials and the debate between defense as well as Prosecutor Lawyer was wonderfully narrated by the Author that will hook you completely till the end. The decision of the rape victim for his rapist was the highlight of the book which make me shock as well as happy to read. A simple language, but a gripping plot. A must read book. I just loved this line….
“Being born with a Vagina makes you a girl, But to reiterate that you are a human, you need a Voice..”
Drawback: The climax, I found Incomplete, I wanted to read more from the Author.
Overall A must read book. Keep it up Gaurav!! And Keep writing J
