How Opal Mehta Got Kissed, Got Wild And Got A Life

How Opal Mehta Got Kissed, Got Wild, and Got A Life: A Novel How Opal Mehta Got Kissed, Got Wild, and Got A Life: A Novel by Kaavya Viswanathan

My rating: 2 of 5 stars
The starting was good enough. It's about an Indian girl in new jersey whose only goal since she was born was to get admitted in Harvard. With support of her parents (who feed her obsession by making chalking out strategies, goals, making lists, setting deadlines etc) she acquires every other thing she thinks might let her into Harvard. But she is disappointed after her first interview with Dean Anderson who tells her that she needed to get a life(indicating a lack of social interaction and romance in her life).She is asked to reapply again after the graduation.i am disappointed in the story after that. It book turns into a typical "girly"stuff (fashion, boys, makeup,television soaps) when opal follows a plan chalked out by her parents. It is named HOWGAL(how opal will get a life) and consist of three goals for be in the group of most popular girls in get get wildsomehow i dragged myself to the end of this book, listlessly reading Opal's transformation into a hot chic and detaching herself from the group of geeks where she once belonged. She doesn't enjoy the process but keeps reminding that this is all for Harvard. i think the story is much better in the end when she realizes Harvard isn't everything and most important thing for anyone is to be happy doing whatever they really want to do.

I Won A Goodreads Giveaway!

The book is titled "zero percentile" and it is written by Neeraj Chibba.

It was really an interesting read. My review of the book (as posted on

 The book is about a boy Pankaj and his life in India and Russia. The book is divided in three parts:

Phase 1: It is all about Pankaj's young life and his friends at school. It reminds of the phase of life when we are young and carefree, make lifetime friends and dream of an extraordinary future. Pankaj's life revolves around his friends, their adventures, failures until the time comes to make a career decision. On his father's advise, he starts preparing exhaustively for IIT JEE.

Phase 2: It deals with the college life of pankaj and is based in Volgograd, Russia. Pankaj lives among students from almost every part of the world and tries to cope up with their entirely different outlook towards life. He learns a lot of ways to deal with the world.

Phase 3: Pankaj becomes responsible about his priorities in life. He tries to make a living in Russia but is deceived by his seniors who cheat him. He starts his own business and faces new challenges at every step. He is also worried about his non-existent love life.

The book is a good read because it is a simple story written in an interesting way. The book is written in first person and has a feel of personal diary. It gives an insight to the problems faced by teenagers, it deals with the fact that ordinary people have the additional weight of responsibility to do something extraordinary to get noticed, it reflects that failures are a part of everyone's life and inspires to look ahead, leaving the bitter memories of past behind.
