Do you have a secret that you can’t tell anybody? Well, Sahil does. The only person he can tell is his best friend, but she doesn’t want to hear it either.

“The brave new face of young adult writing… will make us sit up and take notice.” –Paro Anand

From the blurb:

Slightly Burnt“Sahil was going to say it, no matter what stunt I pulled and then things would be all weird between us, because, you know, I just didn’t feel that way about him.”

Sahil has been Komal’s very best friend since, well, for ever. Which is why she doesn’t want to hear his confession—she doesn’t want him to be in love with her. But there is not much she can do to stop him from saying what he has to say. When her brother gets unwittingly tangled in the whole mess that ensues, Komal finds that she is out of her depth and in desperate need of help.
