This is young adult fiction. No. Not the dark stuff. None of that. A Beautiful Catastrophe is all about a normal life gone wrong. It's about my life gone wrong. It's all about my obsessions with fictional characters, my habit of sniffing books before reading them, my insanity, my friends, my family, my passions, and oh, this book contains a lot of stuff about celebrities. That's me: Miss Obsessed-who-hates-being-attached-to-anyone. This book is a dive into the world of teens: the fun, the craziness, the friends, the loves, the hatred - especially towards maths. It's about how I get into trouble and always get away with it. It's about how topsy-turvy a teen's life can be. I messed up my math exam; I fought with my best friend over a trivial issue; I fell off my bike and the whole town knew; I kissed a guy and didn't regret it. For the first time ever, something is about me. My name is Nikita Achanta, and this is my story.
