Jaweria Sharfuddin is a 15-year-old poetess, who started writing in September 2020. She was born in Hyderabad and lives in the same city. Most of the people call her Jiya, and she’s the youngest of all the siblings. She is currently in SSC-II. She has earned many awards and titles for ‘Student of the Year’ at her school. Besides this, she has won many debate competitions, has done singing, and has always been a bright student in her school and academy.
Her teachers call her ‘an all-rounder’ because of the immense talent she carries within her. Whether it’s singing or painting, calligraphy or debating and public speaking, she has always been the best at them. And by publishing this book of hers, she has proved to be good at writing too. She believes that words have the power to win hearts, and that this is just the start of her writing career, she’ll keep writing and will learn from her mistakes.
“Writing is an escape. It is a cure for me in times when I’m down or sad, and poetry is life. I live for poetry, breathe for poetry and will die for poetry.” says Jaweria.
About being a novelist, she says, “Carving words on paper that well up tears in one’s eyes, force their lips to curl up, and win their hearts forever, is a difficult task. I wasn’t sure if I could do it, until I accepted the challenge and the first three chapters have been written!”
In her spare time, she loves to watch Netflix and read books. She is helping, loving, amazing, and cute. Currently, she is working on her novel, based on a crime scene, and she is damn sure that her upcoming novel is going to be promising.

When you will read it you will relate with each and every word! If you are in love or heartbroken, sad or depressed or in fond of peace, you must read it. Read it for the sake of your heart because this book is the book of the hearts that ache.

I recently received the book and finished it in one sitting. it was honestly such a beautiful read, all the poetries are simple and so gorgeously woven. I loved all of them and the effort she poured inside the book. i could connect to most of the poetries and some of my favs are ‘Writing My Heart Out’, ‘We Never Die’ and ‘Threshold’. all of the poetries are so perfect and beautifully composed. I hope you read it too so that you could connect with her words as i did <33
“The Hearts that ache ” is an 𝘈𝘮𝘢𝘻𝘪𝘯𝘨 piece of art which is a collection of thoughts going through a person who suffers the hard time of life. While reading this book I was amazed that how beautifully written it is. Most of the topics and quotes are much related to our daily life and what we are facing in our lives.I really like her writing because the topics have been writing truly from the heart. I can feel what Jiya has been feeling and facing because there some topics related to the people as well🌺
This book is a mirror for so many of us; reflecting our difficulties, anxiety, and reasons for confusion back to us. It is written by an extremely intelligent and talented young girl who understands the human condition beyond her age and writes them down on paper effortlessly🌸.
Seriously, even though I’ve done reading it. I absolutely loved reading “𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘏𝘦𝘢𝘳𝘵𝘴 𝘧𝘳𝘰𝘮 𝘈𝘤𝘩𝘦” it is such a beautifully conceptualized and exceptionally well-written project🧡
I write my heart
out for you,
and make a paper aeroplane. and throw it to the moon,
it reaches you…
I love each and every single poem 🥺😭
