Well u need to read this book to find out.

I enjoyed this book so much. The story involves mystery, comedy, suspense and murder. It also involves some adult stuff so I wouldn't recommend it to children below 18.

The narration of the story is simple and I really liked the idea of diary writing to record their faults and come up with solutions. Because I love keeping a journal to record my daily activities.

Overall i would recommend this book to everyone who loves mystery and suspense.

That's all for today guys.
