Book summary:


Something is seriously off in the Watkins home. And Julie Seagle, college freshman, small-town Ohio transplant, and the newest resident of this Boston house, is determined to get to the bottom of it.



When Julie's off-campus housing falls through, her mother's old college roommate, Erin Watkins, invites her to move in. The parents, Erin and Roger, are welcoming, but emotionally distant and academically driven to eccentric extremes. The middle child, Matt, is an MIT tech geek with a sweet side ... and the social skills of a spool of USB cable. The youngest, Celeste, is a frighteningly bright but freakishly fastidious 13-year-old who hauls around a life-sized cardboard cutout of her oldest brother almost everywhere she goes.

And there's that oldest brother, Finn: funny, gorgeous, smart, sensitive, almost emotionally available. Geographically? Definitely unavailable. That's because Finn is traveling the world and surfacing only for random Facebook chats, e-mails, and status updates. Before long, through late-night exchanges of disembodied text, he begins to stir something tender and silly and maybe even a little bit sexy in Julie's suddenly lonesome soul.

To Julie, the emotionally scrambled members of the Watkins family add up to something that ... well ... doesn't quite add up. Not until she forces a buried secret to the surface, eliciting a dramatic confrontation that threatens to tear the fragile Watkins family apart, does she get her answer.



      Few weeks ago you had a chance to read Glass' review for this book. We both wanted to read it every since and now we finally got to it. The bottom line is - we both love it. Like she said I as well think that everyone should read this book. 

      To list you all the things I liked in this story...well it'd take some time, that's why I'm sure I'll forget something. I apologize in advance. But really this book is probably everything I like in book. It has a wonderful story and witty characters, it deals with some serious problems but also it's not predictable. You have no idea how shocked I was after I realized everything.

      Julie is new student, meaning she is about to start her college adventure. If the morning shows how the day will be then Julie should sleep the first day off. She came all the way to Boston just to attend the college. She is alone in the new city and when she arrives at her destination she discovers that she doesn't have a place to live. Luckily she has a great mother who pulls things off and soon she meets Watkins. The family who will change her life. She moves in with them and meets their lives. From the inside you see the typical family. Mother and father who are working hard with three children. Brilliant Matthew, or Matty, little Celeste and the brother Finn who is currently traveling around the world. But she soon discovers some things that will make her think. Without knowing they'll change her life.

      So I believe you should find some time in you schedule and throw this book in cause maybe or probably you'll forget all other appointments for that day. Who can blame you?

  3. I told Glass this and I'm telling you as well, Tanja, I am so dying to read Flat Out Love, especially since it features in the same lists as Beautiful Disaster on Goodreads. Glass said it's mainly due to the whole college set up and NA genre alone, but oh well... I cannot wait to read this one! Great review, as always. :) Now that I have heard such lovely things about FOL from both you girls, I'm sure I'll love it too.

    My favourite candy is chocolate covered dry fruits! :P

  5. Yes! I loved this one so much too! It was a readalong with my friend Flannery and I can't remember the last time I enjoyed both a book and a readalong so much. The book itself is hilarious most of the time, and discussing it with someone who is also hilarious along the way is priceless.
    I'm glad you liked it.
