Raghu likes to show that there is nothing remarkable about his lifeloving, middle-class parents, an elder brother he looks up to and plans to study in an IIT. And thats how he wants things to seemnormal. Deep down, however, the guilt of letting his closest friend drown in the schools swimming pool gnaws at him. And even as he punishes himself by hiding from the world and shying away from love and friendship, he feels drawn to the fascinating Brahmia girl quite like him, yet so different. No matter how hard Raghu tries, he begins to care . . . Then life throws him into the deep end and he has to face his worst fears. Will love be strong enough to pull him out? The Boy Who Loved, first of a two-part romance, is warm and dark, edgy and quirky, wonderfully realistic and dangerously unreal.
