Take Vanya's word on- Operation Mom by Reenita Malhotra Hora

When you try to set your mom’s life right. Be prepared to have your own turned upside down. Seventeen-year-old Ila Isham has serious problems. There’s the angst of being an Ali Zafar groupie, for one. Then there are the extra layers of fat she owes to her Punjabi roots. Add to this, parents who have separated; an enthusiastic best friend whose idea of variety is dating three guys at the same time; and her mom’s best friend, Aunty Maleeka, whose good intentions and savvy ways throw up more problems than solutions- and Ila’s got her hands quite full. When her mother flips out over her plans to stalk Ali Zafar, Ila decides she has had enough and sets out to create a few distractions to keep her mom busy. With a little help from BFF Deepali, Aunty Maleeka and Dev of the inviting chocolate-pool eyes, Ila will have to brave everything from and OKCupid profiles to meeting handlebar-moustache colonels and middle-aged psychos, as she tries to set up the perfect parent trap for her unsuspecting mother.

After reading the blurb now, I am sure you guys must have understood what the book is all about. Ila Isham getting her mother a new life. Nah! A man after getting new profiles done in social match making sites and testing them. But the real interesting part is to see how she does that and what all she gets to know about her mom in the process.

For the ‘umphteenth’ time today, Reenita Malhotra Hora has proved what to do and more importantly, how to go more close to the teenage group today’s time. After Forever Young, Inner Beauty and Ayurveda; Operation Mom is one awesomely cute book that shows what goes on in the minds of the teenage group. Written in a very funky way, the book is a must read for every mother and for most teenagers too.

Specially written for girls, this book has been filled with what girls do in their summer vacations and usually. Being a girl, even I know what it feels to be a ‘groupie’ and what a girl feels when everyone says that it is a very kiddish thing to do. To relate with the book, I didn’t have much difficulty cause it was written in a very tell-tale way. The ‘male’ characters in the book were written with so much precision that any girl might fall in love with the characters (shall I take my chance here to say that Aditya has been my fav character)

I am sure, as always Reenita has put in her journalistic mind into framing this book cause this book will do wonders in the minds of the readers. For the hitches, I might say that if the book were a bit more interesting with a bit more for the guys of today’s time then it would’ve taken the book to a whole new level. For now, I would like to request you all to grab a book and tell us what you feel about the book…
