Summary: Vidhya Thakkar- Indian blogger, Mumbai blogger, book blogger, Book blogger Mumbai
For Zaid from Durban, it was heartbreak. For Fiona, who loves New Delhi, it had always been a dream. Rachna needs this chance to step out of Australia and her comfort zone. Tia from Mumbai sees it as a ticket away from her over-protective parents. The four find themselves at the University of Guelph in Canada. Adventure awaits, and a chance at love lingers amidst the crowds – in the halls, at the bars, on the dancefloor. Some of them will find it. But, as with such powerful life-altering things as love, it’s not going to be easy. It’s too late to turn back to the drab, safe and predictable lives they left behind. Might as well buckle up and hold on tight as they brace themselves for the ride of their lives.

Review:
I have read all the books by this author, so there were high expectations from the book. Firstly I loved the title and cover of the book, It’s impressive. because of which I wanted to read this book. After reading Never say Never and written in the stars, I was expecting another gem from the author but unfortunately, I am disappointed with the book.

19 till I die is the story of Tia, Zaid, Fiona and Rachna. Life takes them to the University of Guelph in Canada and that’s where the adventure begins. Well, firstly the author created four different personalities and narrated them in a beautiful way. But again they were not that strong to attract me to continue the book. The pace of the story is lil slow. The one thing that I didn’t like was the plot. It was too jumbled. I was getting confused, as suddenly the story changes from one person to another. The author started the book with separate descriptions, story of the characters and in Chapter three they all happen to be together. That was also annoying as I was not able to connect to the story because of shifting of the plot. The author narrated the story very crisply but it failed to impress me. The hold on vocabulary is good, the language used by the author is simple.  The tempo is okayish. it was not that great. There were no strong characters in the story. It was though to complete the book as every page that I turned I was getting more annoyed.

I expected the plot to be much stronger as her previous books had an amazing story.Overall the story is common and I didn’t find it that attractive. This book appeals much to teens.
I respect the author’s hard work an I will be forever fan of Never say Never and Written in the stars. I wish the next book will be super amazing like never say never and written in the stars.
