Chethan Bhagat, author of the bestselling novels "Five Point Someone", "2 States" and "3 Mistakes of My Life", among others, at 9.30 pm on 4 August, announced the title of his new book "Half-Girlfriend."

Bhagat has also released a video-podcast trailer for the book, which says that there was once a boy named Madhav, who fell in love with a girl named Riya, who spoke English really well, while Madhav did not. Since Madhav wanted a relationship and Riya just opted for friendship, they compromised on Riya becoming his "half-girlfriend". 

The first chapter to the book has also been posted on Bhagat's official Facebook page. Since the announcement of the title, #HalfGirlfriend has been the number one trending tag in India, thanks to some of the most sarcastic and wittiest users in Twitterverse!

Masaba Gupta, one of the test readers for the book gave a positive feedback and asks her followers to wait till October.

The book can be pre-ordered on Flipkart.
