The book is the diary of 12 year old Mayil Ganeshan, who goes through and does what every girl of her age does- gossiping and fighting with friends, having trouble with boys (she ends up punching one on the face), having exam and project stress, the desire to go out and have fun alone, and most importantly learning more about the world.

Her appa gives her the diary hoping that she would give everyone around her a rest for their ears and Mayil decides that she will. At-least no one would ask her to keep quiet now! The diary is just a step towards her goal of becoming Mayilwriter and boy does she write the most hilarious, unique and imaginative stories that will arouse a sense of curiosity and humor in all who reads them.

Meet Mayil Ganeshan, 12 going on spirited 13, who finally her chance to say all she wants. But the diary for her is also an important step towards becoming 'Mayilwriter', to make up for all the stories she hasn't completed and the novel that didn't know where it was going. So she begins. What she gives us is a spontaneous, sensitive, honest, intimate and often hilarious peek into the life and mind of an insightful young girl. The Mayil that emerges is as lovable and recognisable as the delightful sketches she presents of her Amma, Appa, brother, grandfather and friends. Mayil has all the confusion and confidence of adolescence as she faces everyday dilemmas of young people.
