"Five reasons why Hari, Ryan and Alok's lives are in a complete mess: 1. They've messed up their grades big time. 2. Alok and Ryan can't stop bickering with each other. 3. Hari is smitten with Neha who happens to be Prof Cherian's daughter. 4. As IITians, they're expected to conquer the world, something they know isn't likely to happen. 5. They're with each other. Welcome to Five Point Someone. This is not a book to teach you how to get into IIT or even survive it. In fact, it describes how bad things can get if you don't think straight. Funny, dark and non-stop, Five Point Someone is the story of three friends whose measly five-point something GPAs come in the way of everything - their friendship, their love life, their future. WIll they make it?"--Cover.
