After a long time, I picked up a YA novel to read. Honestly, I was a bit disappointed and bored at the start. It was slow and seemed a lot like a lockdown saga. The murder happens after 45% of the book is done.
The only part I liked in the initial half was the buildup of Baman’s character, who knew the dirty secrets of all the residents.
Later on, the story catches speed. Nandini, the 15-year-old protagonist who is also a great observer, has noted some threads to the Baman Marker murder case. Her sound thinking helps her solve it, and you would be shocked to find out who the murderer is.
The writing style is simple and engaging. Quickly go through the first half. The second half is where the real drama is; trust me, you won’t be disappointed.
