Flat Out Love is a warm and witty novel of family love and dysfunction deep heartache and raw vulnerability with a bit of mystery and one whopping knock you to your knees romanceIt's not what you know or when you see that matters It's about a journeySomething 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 R The first review I wrote consisted almost entirely of incoherent gushing This one is pretty much like that but I did manage to include some useful info Don’t expect much though I can’t remember the last time I felt this way about a book As a dedicated reader I don't think I've ever connected to a story uite this much There are so many books that are close to my heart for some reason or other but there was never one so achingly familiar and mine And it wasn’t just one character that I felt close to but parts of every character and every situation I recognized some of myself in Julie’s dedication to her studies in Celeste’s uirks in Matt’s courage and hidden vulnerability in Erin’s absentness and denial It was nice to be able to read a story and really understand I’m making it sound like a sad book aren’t I? Well it’s not This is a book you want to read when you're feeling a little nostalgic and disconnected from the world It will pull you right out Flat Out Love is surprisingly witty During the first 80% I thought I could describe it as my favorite summer read However the last 20% showed me that it’s so much than that Every emotional reaction the story evoked was very strong when I laughed I laughed so loudly that I woke the neighbors; when I cried I sobbed like I was facing the end of the world and in the end I melted into a huge puddle of goo After moving to Boston to start attending college Julie found herself living with her mother’s former best friend Erin and her seemingly perfect family of intellectuals She soon became emotionally attached to every member of the Watkins family especially the oldest brother Finn whom she never met in person but communicated with regularly via email ”Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way” Leo Tolstoy I think there are two types of dysfunctional families the ones that yell and the ones that are uiet – the latter being so much harder to portray Character development is what Jessica Park should really be proud of Her characters came alive for me they became living breathing people with problems uirks and a sense of humor Who could resist Celeste a scarily intelligent 13 year old who won’t leave the house without Flat Finn a cardboard cutout of her oldest brother? Or Matt a math geek with horrible T shirts and a sense of humor that’s right up my alley? Flat Out Love completely changed my mind about self published booksI hope all of you will read it soon so we can gush about it together
