This week I'm sharing:

Here's the synopsis:

For high-school senior Celeste Watkins, every day is a brutal test of bravery. And Celeste is scared. Alienated because she’s too smart, her speech too affected, her social skills too far outside the norm, she seems to have no choice but to retreat into isolation.

But college could set her free, right? If she can make it through this grueling senior year, then maybe. If she can just find that one person to throw her a lifeline, then maybe, just maybe.

Justin Milano, a college sophomore with his own set of quirks, could be that person to pull her from a world of solitude. To rescue her—that is, if she’ll let him.

Together, they may work. Together, they may save each other. And together they may also save another couple—two people Celeste knows are absolutely, positively flat-out in love.

Here are my thoughts:
I seriously love Jessica Park.  Not only because she's an awesome writer- although she is.  But also, because when I emotionally tweet at her halfway through her books, she doesn't openly judge me for it.  I'm sure she does privately, but that's totally fine.

Flat Out Celeste is the third in the Flat Out series- if you've never heard of this series, you're either new to my blog, or have been hiding under a rock.  Read them now.

I love Celeste.  I've never rooted for a character more than when I rooted for her.  I was already attached to her from the other books, but I loved that FOC focuses mostly on her and takes place a few years after the previous books.  She's had time to mature and can develop more in this book.  I could not have loved this book any more.

What are you currently reading??
