Love Fortunes and Other Disasters

Book: Love Fortunes and Other Disasters by Kimberly Karalius 

Synopsis: Love is real in the town of Grimbaud, and Fallon Dupree has dreamed of attending high school there for years. After all, generations of Duprees have successfully followed the (one hundred per cent accurate!) love fortunes from Zita's famous Love Charms Shop to happily marry their high-school sweethearts. It's a tradition. So she is both stunned and devastated when her fortune states that she will NEVER find true love. But Fallon isn't the only student with a terrible love fortune, and a rebellion is brewing. Fallon is determined to take control of her own fate - even if it means working with a notorious heartbreaker like Sebastian. Will Fallon and Sebastian ever be able to defy fate and fall in love?

Book Notes: 
Hands down this was a very cute book. It was a light and enjoyable read, and it was simple enough to keep along with the characters and the overall pace of the text. In so many ways, this was very young, perhaps highlighting the young in young adult genre to be more specific. If you're in the mood for fuzz free reading, and something that is warming and easy, then  maybe give this a shot. It's kind of like High School Musical. You're into it. You're kinda attached to it. And you know its a little juvenile but you love it anyway.
Oh you know what I really liked too is how the concept of being gay, and having gay friends is now more acceptable for the younger generation. This book was targeted for a very young audience, and it is great that it is touched upon something that is quite delicate especially when you're a teen. It is really nice to know that in little ways, there is more love and acceptance that is happening in this world.

Book Quotes:
"People shouldn't know their romantic fates. Because the truth is that it changes."
"Depends on the people," Love said. "Then let people depend on themselves. Let them mend and break their hearts together. Being blind isn't such a bad thing."
