 But why is she this way? There is another story behind it. When she was fifteen, she fell in love with one of her male best friend Aditya Jaiswal. That was not exactly love, but there was a deep feeling of admiration and regard. Aditya Jaiswal, the science geek, had gotten instigated by Maya’s other best friend and had left no stone unturned to insult her. That incident had left her devastated. And she vowed: 

“I vowed to never fall for the wrong guys…the guys I couldn’t have.”

Nineteen chapters, along with the prologue and epilogue give the in-depth details of the story. The character development of the protagonist, Maya, has been beautifully portrayed by the author.
