Book Review:
The Ruby Iyer Diaries by Laxmi Hariharan is the prequel novelette to The Many Lives of Ruby Iyer. This book gives an insight into the protagonist, Ruby Iyer's life from the age of ten to sixteen. How she became the angry and sassy girl that we met in The Many Lives of Ruby Iyer and what happened to make her run away from home? All these and more questions get answered as we follow a young Ruby through her life and revisit the crucial life changing events of her life.

A book that I think must be read before you read the next novel, The Many Lives of Ruby Iyer, I enjoyed revisiting Ruby and journeying to her childhood with her. Her diary entries are realistic, sometimes sad, sometimes cruel but never boring. I empathized with her and now understand her better.

4 out of 5 to it. Go read this book and then the next novel. This is an entertaining series with a sassy, independent, sometimes foul mouthed but always loyal and courageous heroine, Ruby.  I love Laxmi's different take on life and look forward to reading more from her in the future.
