Book Review: Swimming through the Clouds by Rajdeep Paulus

I would firstly like to thank the author Rajdeep Paulus for sending across her book Swimming through the clouds for a review. 

It’s been a while I read a YA fiction and it was thoroughly refreshing reading her book. I had began to avoid YA fiction off late as they seemed to be having the same track and were beginning to drain me as I read them. But this book was different from the usual YA books that are floating around. The characters seem to be so real that at some points I cringed with them, shed copious tears and smiled seeing them happy. 


Swimming through clouds is a beautiful narration of heart touching tale between two people who are lost in life and are trying to find its meaning. They help each other evolve as they struggle through various stages of teenage and I truly admire the author for dealing with such delicate issues so beautifully.

The narration is so beautiful and lucid that it immediately connects you to the story making you want to keep reading it page after page so much so that when it ends you feel emptiness suddenly. As if you wanted the tale to just continue like that. I experienced the excitement of teenage crush, felt the pain of physical violence, pain of having lost a parent, the beauty of siblinghood and a whole lot of mixed emotions amidst these wonderfully written pages.

I would recommend this book for people who enjoy YA fiction as this one is surely not like other YA stories. The author has done an excellent job is writing a gripping story which moves you and leaves you feeling blessed!
