Flat Out Amazing
on 29 January 2013
For some inane reason I thought the premise of this book would have something to do with furniture & when the opening chapter starts with Julie's apartment falling through I thought I was right on the money, nothing could have prepared me for what the "Flat" in "Flat Out Love" represents but I have to say its genius absolutely genius.
This book has serious undertones, a very disturbed young girl a young man carrying the burdens of the world on his shoulders and two parents who no longer know how to parent but the glue that puts it all back together is Julie, she can't ignore what's going on in the household shes ended up in and does her best to fix them, all the while she's falling in love online with the eldest child of the house who's off travelling - but all is not what it seems and as the story unravels, Julie makes brave choices to help everyone whilst dealing with her own demons.
Despite the quite obvious dysfunction going on, this book is not a heavy read, its flaming hilarious, real laugh out loud moments and fabulous witty banter and humour all the way through, coupled with some really tear jerking poignant moments (the first hinges scene was an amazing bit of writing) its 5 stars all the way from me.
