About the Book :
What would you do if destiny twisted the road you took? What if it threw you to a place you did not want to go? Would you fight, would you run or would you accept? Set across two cities in India in the early eighties, 'Life is what you make it' is a gripping account of a few significant years of Ankita's life.
Ankita Sharma has the world at her feet. She is young, good-looking, smart and has tonnes of friends and boys swooning over her. College life is what every youngster dreams of and she also manages to get into a premier management school for her MBA. Six months later, she is a patient in a mental health hospital. How did Ankita get here? What were the events that led to this? Will she ever get back her life again?
Life has cruelly and coldly snatched that which meant the most to her and she must now fight to get it all back.
It is a deeply moving and inspiring account of growing up, of the power of faith and how determination and an indomitable spirit can overcome even what destiny throws at you.
A tale, at its core a love-story that makes us question our beliefs about ourselves and our concept of sanity and forces us to believe that life is truly what one makes it.

Nice Book !! Anybody can read can go for it without any hesitation
Loved it...Every line is heart-touching specially those said by Ankita......Its an Suupppeerrbbb One...!!!
Personally I did not like the way it is narrated and the writing is not upto mark. Kudos to infibeam service and pricing !!! Love it!!
'Life is what you make it'.....and the story lives up to the title,quite literally!! Honestly,I had never heard about the author until recently. The thing I found best was that it teaches each one of us that life may not necessarily turn out the way we have planned or hoped for...!!! I found the central character's self praise went a bit overboard especially when she joined St.Agnes and also at some other instances... In some way,I could connect to yhe story... My favourite lines from the book, "Sometimes all one needs is a strong anchor, a person you can trust blindly.Someone who will lead you on, be there for you and never let you down." ....A nice read,indeed!! :)
The Way the title actually says "Life is What You Make It" is very apt to the story portrayed in the book. From the first page to the last, you are kept hooked to book, its hard to put it aside. The book that you can read in one go, the book that I could very much connect myself to the characters enlisted. Ankita, the main character portrayed in the book, went very close to my heart.
