Is it right to do a wrong for the greater good? Is it right to cheat the rogue? Is it okay to conceal the truth for everyone’s benefit? Check out how a teenager deals with such conundrums in this story. Set in the college of a small town, it revolves around Abhinav’s two-year journey of his junior college where he makes friends, even with people more than thrice his age; takes up part-time job, of all the places, in a bar; and sneaks into the senior cricket team as the youngest member of the squad, only to be thrown out later for a serious crime. But then, he was surrounded by so many good people that he gets back into the team again, only to commit a bigger offence. Find out what were Abhinav’s mistakes and the outcomes of them in this beautiful earthly story where there are emotions, trust, greed, misunderstandings and a fair bit of deception.


I have read lot more books on cricket but after reading the title of the book I expected a different story from the book which are a way similar to other books.

The book has a protagonist named Abhinav who is a hard working guy who is belonging to poor family and lives in a slum area. He gets admission in junior college named GET Dapoli.
In his college he gets selected in cricket team for his good performance. And his life has some ups and down while studying in his junior college.

What are the problems faced by Abhinav? Did his problems affect his cricket carier or studies?

Abhinav’s story is something different and motivating.

Unlike other books this book includes story of teenage, hostel life, friends, etc.

The language in the book is simple and easy to understand. The cover is simple but it might have something different like cricket graphics on it. The grammar was good. The suspense in the book and engaging plot kept me involved in reading the book until the very end.

Surely, this book is recommended to everyone who love to read teenage fiction which is different from other books.
