She Loves Me, He Loves Me Not

He stood in the corner, with a visible frown on his face and tears scrolling down his chubby cheeks. So many gifts around him, for him; but none of it interested him. His eyes were fixed on the new bicycle that was parked outside.
“Your brother will let you ride that no?”, said his friend.
She loves me, He loves me not!“, seven-year-old chanted again pointing towards his parents and fresh tears rushed to kiss his lips.
Her mom caught his gaze. She wished she could explain that his father loved his autistic brother more because he needed it more.

She Loves Me, He Loves Me Not- Zeenat Mahal

Zoella didn’t know whether she was devastatingly happy or happily devastated.
Zoella has been in love with Fardeen Malik, her best friend’s gorgeous older brother, since she was ten, but he’s always seen her as a ‘good girl’—not his type—and he can barely remember her name. Besides, he’s engaged to a gorgeous leggy socialite, someone from the same rarefied social strata as the imposing Malik family. In short, Zoella has no chance with him.
Until a brutal accident leaves Fardeen scarred and disfigured, that is. Suddenly bereft of a fiancée, Fardeen is bitterly caustic, a shell of the man he used to be, a beast that has broken out of the fairy tale world he once lived in. And a twist of fate lands him his very own beauty—Zoella.
This man, however, is a far cry from the Fardeen of her dreams. Stripped of her illusions, Zoella creates her own twist in the fairy tale, beating him at his own game.
Zeenat Mahal explores themes of love, longing and arranged marriages in this modern, unusual interpretation of the old-age fairy tale She Loves Me, He Loves Me Not
