    Wicked Games is the story about Amit Pillai, an NRI, who after 17 years of life in US, suddenly returning to kerala and joining an international school and his life thereafter.The premise is an entirely new one and not much exploited one The protagonist, falls to a minority in our societe an international school student We have read stories about regular school life in india But this is new and original and deviod of the regular cliches in many of the coming of age stories.Amit goes through a lot of mood swings, and at times we feel both sorry and angry for the poor scoundrel And as a keralite meself, this is a rare book, which tells to the world what kerala really is not exactly the tourist s paradise, our govt and celebrities endorse it as The language and flow is good, with frequent direct addressing to the reader, which i found a tad bit inconvenient The Language is beautiful and the vocabulary of the author is note worthy, also his sarcastic abilities.The book is exactly what the publishers claim it is a roller coaster ride.contempory school life like never before. It gives a different reading experience and is a real page turner and will keep you entertained throughout.
