About the Author
Jessica Park is the author of the young adult novel RELATIVELY FAMOUS, five Gourmet Girl mysteries (written as Jessica Conant-Park) and the e-shorts FACEBOOKING RICK SPRINGFIELD and WHAT THE KID SAYS (Parts 1 & 2). She grew up in the Boston area and then went to Macalester College in frigid St. Paul, Minnesota. During her freshman year, there was a blizzard on Halloween, and she decided that she was not cut out for such torture. So she moved back to the east coast where, she'd forgotten, it still snows. Oops. She now lives in New Hampshire with her husband, son, bananas dog named Fritzy, and two selfish cats. When not writing, she is probably on Facebook , pining over 80s rock stars, or engaging in "Glee" activities. Or some combination of the three. Probably with a coffee in hand. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Nice easy read. pick up and put away
So I am not going to say anything about this book except read it, and I hope it will be as special, emotional and un-spoilt for you as it was for me!!!
Oh and I am a bit jealous of you right now!!
The Kindle Daily Deal is a bit hit and miss - this was a prefect 3/5. In the hands of the desired audience it may well be worthy of 4/5, definitely no classic.
If you are over being a student don't bother with this one.
If you do work out the twist from the beginning of Flat-Out Love, I promise you it won't detract from your enjoyment of the story. If you don't work it out, then you're in for a clever and heart-squeezing ride. The heroine Julie is a likeable college Freshman who descends on Boston (I always wanted to go to Boston, now I'm frickin' antsy after Park's wonderful descriptions) and a super intelligent family to turn their lives upside down. The best thing about Julie is her genuine likeability - she has a huge heart and an absolutely insane sense of humour that I loved. The Watkins family is really special too. Matt the MIT geek is funny and likeable and so sweetly protective of his little sister Celeste. As for Celeste and her cardboard copy of her big brother Finn she takes with her everywhere... oh holy hell she made me laugh. She's cute, completely socially awkward and blunt in a way you can't help but love.
My favourite thing about the entire book was probably the dialoguing. Suffice to say the banter is excellent. The IMs between Finn and Julie had me laughing out loud, they were so off the wall and my exact sense of humour (and actually reminiscent of the kinds of stuff me and my friends gibber nonsensically about in emails).
The writing itself is easy, modern prose that sweeps you through the book (I read it in one sitting) and catches you in the gut and in those laughter lines around the eye with its beautiful simplicity and poignant perception of a family in need.
Wonderful read. I highly recommend.
Five Massive Massive Stars!
