The Fragile Ordinary by Samantha Young

I am becoming a huge fan of Young's YA reads. I absolutely ADORE her adult novels but these, are a special kind of read. I can get completely lost and enjoy them page after page. The Fragile Ordinary was no different.

I adored Comet and Tobias. One, because my husbands name is Toby. Two, because this story was fantastic. These two were fun and different and it had all the emotions you want from a YA. The angst and slow burn were everything. I absolutely adored Comet. I wish she could meet me for coffee and I could just bask in all of her awesomeness. She is true and real and one fo the most unique characters I have ever fallen in love with. I won't spoil it for you. A coming age story that has a story that keeps you falling page after page into it, and a plot that is perfection. I loved not only the secondary characters, but the fact that I could read about these kids for days and not be bored. They had so much to them, that they truly were the reason I kept reading. I mean, I know that the story itself was fantastic, but it was the characters I really fell for.

I am Comet Caldwell. And I sort of, kind of, absolutely hate my name. People expect extraordinary things from a girl named Comet. That she’ll be effortlessly cool and light up a room the way a comet blazes across the sky. But from the shyness that makes her book-character friends more appealing than real people to the parents whose indifference hurts more than an open wound, Comet has never wanted to be the center of attention. She can’t wait to graduate from her high school in Edinburgh, Scotland, where the only place she ever feels truly herself is on her anonymous poetry blog. But surely that will change once she leaves to attend university somewhere far, far away. When new student Tobias King blazes in from America and shakes up the school, Comet thinks she’s got the bad boy figured out. Until they’re thrown together for a class assignment and begin to form an unlikely connection. Everything shifts in Comet’s ordinary world. Tobias has a dark past and runs with a tough crowd—and none of them are happy about his interest in Comet. Targeted by bullies and thrown into the spotlight, Comet and Tobias can go their separate ways…or take a risk on something extraordinary.
