I received KLASS – A Man Is Lifeless Without A Passion In His Life! by Prita Yadav as a review copy from the author. It is the story of a girl, Jolene Jordan, who is forced by her father to join KLASS, a sports school in Pune. The book depicts Jolene’s first year of her schooling at KLASS.
The Blurb (from Goodreads):
Jolene Jordan has been forced to join KLASS by her father and she dislikes the fact that she has to toe his line. She makes up her mind to be extremely rude, disobey the teachers and break all rules; so that she would be expelled from school and her father would be humiliated. For sometime Jo is the ‘Mind your own business’ girl and the bottom performer in her class until a sudden unfortunate twist in her life makes the girl change over a new leaf. The story revolves around Jo’s whirlwind journey through KLASS, her dilemma to choose a game as her MAJOR, her resolve to get thrown out of KLASS as a rebuke to her father and her struggle to overpower her notion to be friends with anyone at KLASS.
Jolene Jordan, Jo, knows that her father does not love her. She is sent to Klass, by her father against her wish, in Class eleven. She does not like it there and behaves in such a way that she feels would force the school management to ask her to leave. She does not study, does not select a Major Subject and sleeps in class. She hates her father and feels if she is expelled from the school, it would be her revenge. She meets Teju, Tejaswi Gupta, a studious girl, and by default they become room-mates as nobody wants to share a room with either of them. She slowly becomes better acquainted with many of her classmates and something she experiences changes her life completely.
The story is simple and the language and the flow are good. The author has narrated the story in such a way that it was easy for me to visualize the scenes very easily. The characters have been developed well and the relationship between the characters has been described well. The author has described many emotions in the book like jealousy, friendship, helplessness, romance, hatred. The story also describes a very nice teacher student relationship.
But I felt incomplete at the end of the book because I felt that the end is yet to come.
