Aamir has never met anyone who understands him better than Anvi. But her passion for investigative journalism scares him no end. She is calling while reporting from a crime scene and promising to switch to anchoring when he hears a gunshot. Will she be able to fulfil her promise?
Dhruv can do anything to please Vratika, for he seems bound to her for life. They have been going steady for a while and he feels she brings smiles and light to his life like no other. Can one misunderstanding in a moment of anger finish it all?
For Aamir, little Dhruv is the best gift life has given him. More than just brothers, they are the beginning and end of their family. After years, struggles and pain are slowly fading away in the face of happier times. But one phone call changes their entire life. 
Life throws Aamir and Dhruv in a vortex of pain, loss and guilt. While Dhruv wanders for redemption, he meets Sachi. She reads his heart, soothes his soul and brings him face to face with his real self. I Still Think About You is a story of love, brotherhood, passion, dedication, pain and the depths to which a heart can go to win back lost love.


My Review
The title of the book  gives an impression of a teenage romance or puppy romance, as it is critically named. The book cover also gives the same impression. But on further reading it becomes clear that the book is more than what is in the league.

The story is mainly about brotherhood. There are very few books that portray the beautiful relation between two brothers. With beautiful narration author gave an enlightening story of two brothers who stayed together after the demise of their parents. An unfortunate incident changes their life.

Relation between Dhruv and Sachi is portrayed realistically. While the climax disappointed me, the overall storyline was surprisingly deep and palpable. In the first few chapters, narration seemed amateurish but author got the swing in the proceeding chapters.
With a little more realistic title and book cover, the book could have excelled the bestseller charts.

Compared to several bestselling romance books, this book stands out.
