I generally don’t read children books but there was something engaging in the title which made me sign up for the blog tour, that’s how impulsive I am (till date :P), but I am glad I picked this book. It will be a roller coaster ride filled with innocence, your childhood.
Childhood is considered to be the best time of one’s life.What if you get a chance to live it once more with a five-year-old?
Misry, a naughty five-year-old girl, lives with her parents in a B.S.F border outpost near Indo-Bangladesh border. But with no schools and friends she feels very lonely. She tries to befriend some local village kids. But they find her incompetent in their rural antics. They nickname her Messy as most of the time she messes up their plan.Can Misry really be a part of the gang? Set in the early eighties, join Misry in the adventures of her life.
- A book that will make the revisit the childhood days. Childhood honestly the best time in your entire life, filled with love and innocence. You can’t help but fall for 5- year old Misry, better known as messy.
- This book also brings the startling difference between the kids today who are happy to play on their ipads whereas the kids in the 80’s and 90’s were happy with playing outside. I being a 90’s kid could easily relate to this.
- It reminds you of those times when you heard “grow up” or when will you grow up? Those innocent days when you took things at face value. It is surprising that the young minds think so differently, and how they come to such conclusions. I personally loved the stories in the second phase of Misry’s life.
- I applaud to the author for penning down such a heartfelt book and that too writing from a perspective of a 5 year old with such finesse. All I can say is that I am waiting for the sequel of this book.
