Mostly Madly Mayil (English)

Author : Sowmya Rajendran, Niveditha Subramaniam
Illustrator : Niveditha Subramaniam

Mayil is now perceptibly older, and wiser to a lot more things that make up teens. We see her as one of the Fake-inas friend-ing a cute senior on Facebook, as a superpowered Liyam Lonewolf, a Cinderella tripping over her ghagra at Pumpkin VS's party, and of course, as a further evolved Mayilwriter who wouldn't mind rapping too. In this second book of the series, Mayil continues to pour her many thoughts out as honestly, hilariously, and touchingly as ever – on everything from sexual harassment, to caste distinctions (even in the Harry Potters), to Saroja Paati in sleeveless and lipstick.

Contemporary and true to life

Yes, Mayil writes about serious issues in her diary but she’s also irreverent and fun... Another great thing about the book is that it perfectly reflects the times and the geography it exists in. Mayil, and by extension the book, lives in and exudes Chennai and India. It doesn’t pretend to be anything else – the jokes, the references, the problems manage to be globally relatable while at the same time being inherently local... Pick up this book to add a tremendous dose of fun and irreverence into your reading list with a smattering of insight thrown in. Bookworm Etcetera
