‘Operation Mom’ by REENITA MALHOTRA HORA, from HARPER COLLINS PUBLISHERS, took me back to my teenage days. It was silly, yet fun. And the latter is all that matters.
The author narrates to the readers a chapter from a teen girl’s life, where she, with a little help from her best friend, crush, and ultramodern aunty, gives in her best attempt in making her mother loosen up for better.
The title along with subtitle, which read ‘OPERATION MOM… how i got my mom a man and a life’ arises curiosity. In India, the idea of getting your mom a man is considered sinful, and not just bizarre. So, in a way, this book is faraway from the stereotypical. The cover page is designed to be intricate, and the blurb, efficiently hints at the story.
It is filled with teenage drama and action. A fast-paced novel. Once you start reading, it will take you on a bumpy ride to your teen age. The narrative skills, the turn in the stories, the element of humor, all summed up to make it an engrossing page-turner. However, grown-ups will not find it enough praiseworthy.
Specifically recommended to the teens of today.
My rating: 3/5
