Genre– Contemporary Fiction
Fiza lives with her mother in Mumbai. She is studying Literature from the most prestigious institute of Mumbai; St. Xavier’s. Fiza’s life is regular. Nothing exciting or out of the ordinary episodes occur in her life.
Just when she is started planning something for her future, she receives a phone call from her estrange father’s best friends. She is informed that her father, who left her years back, is dead and has left a small amount of money in her name. He requests her to open a bookshop out of that money. Within a few days the blueprint of her plans is changed to something new. She is now surrounded by books, décor and a beautiful bookshop, PAPER MOON.
Throughout her journey to nurture her bookshop, she faces breakup, old secrets, loses best friend and meets some amazing new ones.
As mentioned in the synopsis the book surely delivers all the three elements; books, Bombay and romance. 90s kids are going to love this book as this will give you some nostalgic hit. I secretly wish to own a bookshop and be surrounded by books! *sighs*
Though it is an interesting light read, it loses its charm in the middle as some not-so-exciting or important events are mentioned. Other than that I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
