Here’s the synopsis given by Flipkart on their site:

“Once upon a time, there was a Bihari boy called Madhav. He fell in love with a girl called Riya. Madhav didn’t speak English well. Riya did. Madhav wanted a relationship. Riya didn’t. Riya just wanted friendship. Madhav didn’t. Riya suggested a compromise. She agreed to be his half-girlfriend.”

India’s most successful story-teller Chetan Bhagat’s new book is coming to the market after a gap of three years.
