Dying to Live Paperback – by Monisha K. Gumber


BLURB – An honest, painful and often humourous narrative- a tale of resilience, courage and grace..when nothing matters anymore…

Megha, a young super-achiever with a perfect life has all that is needed to be happy. After all why wouldn’t she? A swimming champion, school topper, popular, good-looking girl with amazing friends and loving parents. What more could a girl ask for? A lot, actually.

Because even when she has it all; she sulks and does the unthinkable. A grave mistake that could take her to her own grave. But survivor that she is, she breaks through the wall of ‘perfections’ and accepts that she is what she is: sad, vulnerable and confused. Oh, don’t get her wrong, as she puts up a tough fight to reach where she is meant to be. And on the way learns some lessons that will take her through this amazing journey called life. A happy kind of life.


starting with the cover it is really quirky and colourful. the title also giving an insight about the book. having read the first book by the author – you will be definitely waiting for this book. Beautiful images and jokes bring you back to the childhood memories over and again. wanting you to live those. Just the struggle of a school kid to manage every aspect of her life- getting good grades, being a good kid and excelling. how not being able to manage it properly may lead to health disaster and coping up may take alot of time. just an experience of peeping into one’s personal diary and knowing about it. you will definitely like how her nani helps her – that portion of the book is really priceless. and so are the other parts of the book. hope is an important aspect of humans skin and that is what is focused in this book along with many relatable lines and jokes. Language is easy to understand and definitely an amazing job done by the author again.
