Such is her life by Reecha Agarwal Goyal is a collection of musings on being a girl in this world. Every page has a few powerful lines aiming to convey their sentiments. How the struggle of a girl begins even before she is born. The book tells some very vivid and heartbreaking truths of being a girl child. Her struggles and the atrocities that are done to her. The subjects touched upon include female foeticide, sexual and domestic abuse, slut-shaming, sexism, and our society’s obsession with having only a boy child. The author doesn’t hold back and tells the truth of the situations girls are submitted to.

I loved the format of the book and the way it was illustrated. To be honest, I’m not a fan of this style of writing a book but I do appreciate the conveyance of powerful emotions through a few lines. I also admire the boldness of the author in her writing.
There were lines in this book that I loved and there were lines that I found very simple in comparison.

I would definitely recommend this book. It can be read in one sitting. It makes you think and reflect on some of the injustices of this world. I hope more people read books like this and change their mindsets regarding women.
