Is it because of an exceptional and intricate plot? No.
Is it because of an out of this world penmanship? No.

It is because I felt a deep soul bond with Comet. She was me at a younger age. And ...more
Is the world falling apart? It’s a simple question without simple answers. Between the pages of The Fragile Ordinary, it may be more the matter of, what does one do when affiliations with a tribe or another person undermine relationships that have the potential to be life-fulfilling?

The Fragile Ordinary is a standalone Young Adult contemporary romance.
The narrator is 16-17 year old Comet Caldwell (1st person POV). The story takes place in Portobello Beach, which is a coastal suburb of Edinburgh Scotland.
Comet is shy and socially awkward. She loves reading and she loves writing poetry. Her parents Carrie and Kyle have money. But their parenting style is very lacking. I found Comet's dynamic with her parents to be unusual, but extremely fascinating.
I loved the setting of this ...more
It has been so long since I read a YA novel and I’m so glad that this was the book I chose. Samantha always seems to draw me into her stories with her ability to write about such realistic characters.
Comet is a girl that I am sure everyone can relate to. Especially when you think back to those times in your teenage life when you weren’t quite considered an adult and experiencing some ‘firsts’ on your way across the bridge of adolescence. Those experiences make it easy to understand what she was ...more
Every so often a book hits me in ways I never expect and The Fragile Ordinary is one them.
While I was expecting a very well written and interesting YA read (and I did get that), I was blown away by Samantha's poetry throughout this book. Reading her words had me stopping and reflecting on things in life that I never expected. For me, that made this book stand out even more.
The Fragile Ordinary is a story of growth for these young characters. Growing up in world where drugs are more easily access ...more
I’ve read nearly two dozen books by Samantha Young across various genres and her gift for crafting heartwarming, emotional, and thought-provoking stories never ceases to amaze me. It’s this confidence in her brilliant storytelling abilities that drew me to her new Young Adult romance, The Fragile Ordinary, even though YA isn’t a genre I typically gravitate towards. Going in to this book, as with any Samantha Young book, I expected an engaging storyline and endearing characters, though I didn’t e ...more
Comet est une adolescente écossaise introvertie qui préfère lire qu’aller en soirée, malgré les supplications de ses amies. Elle a un crush sur le nouvel élève américain, Tobias, avant de se rendre compte qu’il n’est pas aussi beau physiquement que moralement. Mais Tobias cache de nombreux secrets.
Les lectrices de Samantha Young ne peuvent que s’identifier à son héroïne, dévoreuse de livres qui rêve sa vie plutôt que la vivre jusqu’à ce que les sentiments amoureux s’en mêlent. On voit cette fill ...more
