About the Book :

Uncomfortable around boys, the only girl in her department, can Tanu outshine or find true love in the sea of boys at IIT? Having cleared the exam that only the most intelligent do, Tanu reaches IIT Delhi merely to realize that she is an outlier in the system - a girl at IIT! She befriends Puja, Divya and Charu and thus begins a roller coaster ride through torturous exams, below average grades, biased lab assistants, nutty professors, envious seniors, hard to get boys, midnight trysts, fun fests, competitive sports, a suicide, a dominating grandfather and rigged elections! Be it asking questions in class or catching up on her beauty sleep, how does one go about it without being noticed by the boys or the professors? Inter-hostel competitions can be embarrassing especially when the boys purposely choose awkward topics and craft shameless clues. How does one overcome these stumbling blocks keeping ones dignity intact? Chatting and innocuous jokes can be a torture if there are forty pairs of eyes glued to every action of yours. How does one make it feel normal and go about life at IIT'

When it comes to matters of the heart, and so many to choose from, how does one know who is Mr Right? -Heartbreaks & Dreams!- is a delightful and funny attempt at depicting circumstantial challenges intrinsic to a college campus characterized by a skewed sex-ratio, cut-throat competition, grueling course work and a largely geek population. Seen through the eyes of a confident and intelligent yet simple, middle-class girl, the book journeys through the most vulnerable and youthful times of her stay at IIT.

Not so bad... But I didn't find it so interesting.. May be because the story was narrated by an author who is yet to become a more mature writer... But overall it shows the life @ IIT from girls perspective. The troubles they are facing, The happiness they are sharing, The fight they are quarrelling, LOVe- BREAKUPS. Overall , it is a average book. But can be read over a weekend.
