    Well hell, The Fragile Ordinary didn't dazzle me like I'd hoped it would and given all the great reviews it's definitely a case of "it's me".

    I loved the idea of the story, I really felt for Comet but was in no way enamoured of the rest of the characters, even Tobias. Maybe if I'd gotten a little something in his POV I could have warmed to him a little because he was downright cruel to Comet at times. I so didn't believe in their romance and was quite happy with the HFN because I couldn't see a H

    My anchor, he pulled me back to myself, to him, and slowly, but surely, I began to breathe again.

    Once again Sam Young blows me away. If I didn't love her adult romance novels so much, I would plead for her to only write YA, but she is one of the rare authors that can pull off both exquisitely.

    I didn't read the blurb, I never do with Sam's books, because I know that she'll take care of me. That she'll deliver a beautifully heartbreaking story that will tear me apart and put me back toge

    A heartwarming story of self-acceptance and the power of love to build confidence and be brave enough to step out of one's comfort zone.

    Comet Caldwell is as unique a book character as her name suggests. Undeniably shy, she prefers the comfort of solitude and escaping into one of her many books she loves. Despite her desire to remain under the radar, she doesn't allow that to contain her individual fashion sense, and I liked how she allowed herself this freedom even if her own friend moc

    There is something special in a young adult romance. That angst from the uncertainty of being not quite a child but not quite an adult either. That bit of childhood innocence resonating through the story. That trip down memory lane it takes to those teenage years, sparking good and trying times. The glue that usually cements YA stories—with tough topics, frustrating feelings, smoldering and sweet scenes, and lots of depth—together is hope. Who doesn’t need a little hope in their life?

    Excellent read. It gave me gut wrenching feels. It reminded me of reading two of my other favorite Samantha Young's other books - Into the Deep and Hero.

    This is a beautiful and heartfelt coming of age story set in a seaside town in Scotland and tells the story of an extraordinary young girl figuring out her life, herself, and discovering the wonder of first love. It’s a gorgeous YA story by one of my all-time favourite authors, and I loved it!

    Comet Caldwell is a 16 year old girl who is unique as her name. With a love of poetry, books, and a quirky sense of fashion, she is an individual who is comfortable with who she is, th

    “What if what I really want…is you?”

    … My answer was instant and absolute. “Then you have me.”


    Oh, I love these two together!!! There is something so easy and so beautiful about the two of them, and I reveled in both their friendship and their romance. It all felt so right!

    We loved each other. This was real love, I decided as he hugged me close to his side. It had to be. Because nothing had ever felt more real in my entire life.


    But their lives are far from easy. They are dealing with family drama, friend drama, bullying, and the usual teenager drama of trying to figure out who they are and what they want from life. Comet and Tobias have their ups and downs – individually and together as a couple. And their individual journeys are just as important as their journey together as they deal with all that life throws at them. It’s all beautifully pulled together into a very special story that had me reminiscing about my own teen years, and made me laugh, cry, swoon and sigh at the beauty of it all.

    Before you, I believed real, true, glorious living was in adventure, was in the extraordinary. But I’ve learned that time is not so forgiving, and the real beautify of life is in the fragile ordinary.


    This book took me by surprise with its emotion. I wasn’t expecting the feels, but I was easily swept up into Comet’s world, and I loved watching her story play out. She is brave and relatable, and she's a wonderful narrator for her story. It ends well, though not everything is completely tied up (view spoiler). But it sort of fits the book, so I was ok with it.

    This was a truly gorgeous read! 4 stars.

    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
