Book Talk Review; Flat-Out Celeste

 Flat-Out Celeste is the third book in the Flat-Out-Love Series by The Amazing Jessica Park!


 
 
 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 absolutely loved Celeste in Flat-Out Love, and was so excited to hear that Jessica had wrote Flat-Out Celeste. 
 
 Everyone who remembers the little too smart for her own good thirteen year old Celeste Watkins from Flat-Out Love will be surprised by this 18-year old Beautiful, smart, awkward, and loveable Celeste Watkins. 
 
 We already know that Celeste is too smart for her own good. She is awkward, she has proper speech, and hardly ever uses contractions. 
 
 Justin Milano is a clumsy, awkward, college sophomore, with his own set of quirks. 

 Justin contacts Celeste as a Student Liaison for a college who is very interested in her. 

 They exchange several emails and then he shows up at her house. To give her and her family the spiel about Barton College. 

 But Justin may like her for more than just a potential college freshman. 
 
 Celeste and Justin begin this long distance relationship. And it works for them. They go perfectly together and they complement the other's unique quirks perfectly. 
 
 Justin helps Celeste understand that who she is, is who she is supposed to be. She doesn't need to change herself in order to have a good experience. She needs to embrace who she is and accept herself. 
 
 Justin says that Celeste grounds him. And in a way she does. It's apparent early on, and mentioned by Justin himself that he has a small attention span. And what is undiagnosed as a case of ADD. But it's okay for him to go undiagnosed, because a diagnosis is just someone telling you who you're supposed to be. And that is not what the book is about. 
 
 The book is about living to be yourself, discovering who you are, and falling in love for the first time. 
 
 This is a beautiful love story. 
 
 I love Justin and Celeste they are perfect for each other. And like Justin said they balance each other out. 
 
 Jessica is an amazing writer and I can't wait to read more of her books! 
  
 *Quote - "There are battles, some greater than others. But they are worth getting through." -Justin

                "I am choosing a love that defies boundaries and a life that defies boundaries. That is the power of Celeste." -Celeste
                "One day, when the color of the sky is perfect, when I have spent the night in your arms, and when I am fully back where I belong, I may just jump from the cliffs to the water below. Maybe. Maybe I will; maybe I won't. But in either case, I will still be fine." -Celeste
