Diary of a Twenty-Something: A Collection of Teenage Musings is a collection of 46 poems. Anjali Roongta, the 20 something poetess has penned this teen fiction drama in the form of poems and prose. The most unique factor about the book is the concept of telling a gritting story of the fictional character Siya through the medium of poems written like diary entries.
The collection of her poems holds a high range of emotions. Anjali pens down about issues like mental health, body shaming, identity crisis and love in her poems. The graveness of the issues is softened by the flowing words in her poems.
Anjali Roongta is a student by day and a poetess by night. At the age of twenty – something, she has already published 2 books – a children’s book and this poetry book for teenagers. Her passion for poetry precedes her as she chooses to treat somber issues with the subtlety of her poems.
