Book Review: It Wasn't Her Fault by KGPian Aakash Neeraj Mittal

It Wasn't Her Fault.jpg

This book is based on a true story about two best friends and all the obstacles they face in their friendship, one of them being the rape of one of the friends - the 15 year old girl. Her best friend on the other hand battles between the role he needs to play as a friend in the raped girl's life and the immense love he is unable to express for her until she is raped. The two go through the journey of adolescence and discover dark truths about life in real but harsh ways. The story ends on a very tragic but spiritual note. The book condemns social stigma attached with the rape survivors and the culture of ostracizing and shunning them. I strongly feel about this topic and have written this book to denounce the existing malpractices targeted at women in our country.
