Product Description

Product Description

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.

Whether you were charmed by Celeste in Flat-Out Love or are meeting her for the first time, this book is a joyous celebration of differences, about battling private wars that rage in our heads and in our hearts, and—very much so— this is a story about first love.

"I didn't think that this story would grab me like Flat-Out Love did. I knew I would love it, but I didn't know I would FREAKING LOVE IT as much as I do.” -Reader Chrystle W.

"As anxious as I was to finish this book, part of me wanted it to last forever. So many big, fuzzy, feel-filled hearts for Jessica Park and this book.” -Kimberly Faye Reads

Kristie Pierce: "I don't know how anyone can walk away from this book and not be inspired. Or full of hope.” -Reader Kristie P.

"Flat-Out Celeste is for anyone who has ever felt like an outcast. For anyone who thinks they’re a little different. For anyone who’s clumsy. For anyone who thinks outside the box. For anyone who doesn’t follow social norms. For anyone who feels socially awkward. For anyone who has been picked on. For anyone who has sat alone at lunch. For anyone who knows what it’s like to question if you really have friends. For anyone who is sad….” -Literary Binge

"Flat-Out Celeste was a brave, heart-wrenching story of a girl trying desperately to live life unlabeled. It’s smart, funny, sweet, and at times even painful.” -Love Between the Sheets

5.0 out of 5 stars Great novel 26 Aug 2014
By Bee
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first novel, I have read from this author and I thoroughly enjoyed the ride.

Celeste and Justin both had to struggle with what they considered to be shortfalls in their everyday life in different ways and yet when they met for the first time they felt this kinship.

As their paths ran completely in separately directions, neither of them envisaged that their paths would cross again. The terrible tragedy, which occurred in Celeste's life had an adverse effect on her family. Matt was a very supportive brother who was always there for her when she needed him. The whole story is very well written and the emotions felt very real. I found myself laughing out loud one minute and nearly in tears the next.

I feel that the message being put across in this novel could be beneficial to anybody. This is one, which I would recommend to those who like a good romance with unexpected twists. I know that this is one that I will read again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book. 28 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was given this book by a friend, being a 38 year old who scoffs at love stories I did not hold out much hope. However I have just devoured this lovely little book. In the last four hours I have laughed and cried - I mean seriously sobbed like a loon. I have rarely rooted for a character quite as much as I did Celeste, she was written with such honesty and love. A really great book.

Flat-Out Celeste (Flat-Out Love, #2) by Jessica Park
5 stars!!!

“You’re a lifesaver, Celeste.”
“No, you are my lifesaver, Justin.”

My love affair with this series began way back when Flat-Out Love was first released and was the start to my addiction to all books Jessica Park. Jessica has proven she can write the wit and the serious (see Left Drowning) and this book is a perfect balance of both. My affinity to Celeste has always been strong, like her I was the nerdy school girl, the loner and I never fitted in. While I like to think in the long run it never did me any harm, I couldn’t help but relate to Celeste’s plight both in Flat-Out Love and now Flat-Out Celeste. Throughout Flat-Out Love I was her biggest cheerleader so when Jessica revealed that Celeste was getting her own book I couldn’t wait to get stuck in. I knew I would love it, if ever a character deserved their own book it was her and I was rooting for a HEA for our troubled school girl.

In Flat-Out Love, Celeste was at junior school, in Flat-Out Celeste we start with her completing her final year of high school and yes she is facing her biggest challenge yet… what university to go to. Yes the little girl has grown up, still super intelligent, super nerdy but trying her hardest to try and change and to make friends, she wants to begin her University life as the “new and improved” Celeste. Although in my opinion, she needn’t have changed, she was perfect just the way she was. Even though our Celeste was emotionally stunted and was still gravely lacking in social skills, throughout this book you were witnessing her slow realisation of her want to change, her need to change and then you watch her take the bull by the horns and try to change.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flat out fantastic 24 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Jessica Park has the ability to make you love and care for the characters she creates and totally believe in their story. She has created the most beautifully flawed amazing people which I completely relate to. I can't recommend this book enough, but be prepared to laugh, cry and be extremely sad when the book ends, not because it's a bad ending, but because you feel like your saying goodbye to really good friends and you really want to know what they do next.

Loved it, can't recommend this book (and all of Jessica Park's books) highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! Flat-Out loved it! 24 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Well, what can I say? Jessica Park has done it again! I loved Flat-Out Love and Flat-Out Matt so I was thrilled when I heard Jessica was writing Flat-Out Celeste. And the wait was well worth it. What a book! I love Celeste, I have since FOL, I lover her quirkiness, the way she speaks, and just who she is as a person. In this book we not only get to see Celeste being her normal wonderful self, but we also get to see her grow.
I laughed A LOT! And I also cried. It's not often I get a book that makes me both laugh, and cry, and that's why FOC has taken it's rightful place as my new favourite book.
I can guarantee I'll be reading this book again within a few days. And I can also guarantee I'll be putting hashtags in my text messages from now on.
Jessica Park, you smashed it!
