The Fragile Ordinary

The Fragile Ordinary

I am Comet Caldwell. And I sort of, kind of, absolutely hate my name. People expect extraordinary things from a girl named Comet. That she?ll be effortlessly cool and light up a room the way a comet blazes across the sky.

    I have been an ardent fan of Samantha Young's books for a few years now. It always excites me whenever I get the chance to re-read or read a book by this author. It's safe to say that The fragile Ordinary is a fantastic read! I can see why this book is one of the most highly an...

    3.5 stars So, this book got me sweating because I had no idea how to rate it. On one hand it was definitely a bit like a telenovela containing every YA trope ever, but on the other hand I love Samantha Young's writing and she somehow made it work. I really think her young adult book...

    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. ...

    ?4 STARS? Comet Caldwell lives a fragile existence. Separated from total loneliness only by her two best friends and her books, she sits on the fringes of total obscruity in school, and at home is dimmed under the brilliance of her artist mother and writer father. With ...

    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 thin...

    4.5 STARS There's so much I could say about how fantastic The Fragile Ordinary is but I think what I loved and appreciated the most was how relatable it is. This achingly sweet YA contemporary romance checks off all the boxes of an emotional love story, but it's also an incredibly p...

    Maybe 3.5 stars for this YA romance set in Scotland. The Fragile Ordinary is the story of Comet Caldwell. We see her navigating her school life, an environment where she doesn't feel she fits in, managing her emotions surrounding her disengaged parents, and trying to find the confid...

    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?...

    3.75 out of 5. Full RTC for this surprisingly charming story. ...

    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 ...

    THE FRAGILE ORDINARY is a coming of age read as much as it is YA. It centres around Comet, an emotionally neglected 16-17 year old young woman who is finding herself, her confidence and her direction in life. There is a boy, an American boy, Tobias King. He was boy-man swoony and this ...

    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 a...

    The Fragile Ordinary was a book that offered me solace in a world where at times, I feel very much alone. Just like Comet. Books are a way for me to escape and there isn?t a day that goes by that I don?t have some sort of story or book in my hand. It?s a way of life. Comet uses b...

    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 reflec...

    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...

    4.5 Stars 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 p...

    3.25 STARS Being sixteen is never easy but Comet Caldwell has the additional woe of being saddled with two parents who seem prone to treating her as a polite boarder or acting surprised that she?s actually still around. Add in two fun-loving friends who cannot understand her booki...

    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 g...

    I have been an ardent fan of Samantha Young's books for a few years now. It always excites me whenever I get the chance to re-read or read a book by this author. It's safe to say that The fragile Ordinary is a fantastic read! I can see why this book is one of the most highly an...

    Nothing much to say. I LOVED IT! LOVED IT!!!! It was an amazingly sweet and adorable and beautiful and heartbreaking young adult romance. Perfect! I want my own Tobias to walk along that beautiful scottish beach with! I wouldn't mind getting a 2nd one about those tw...

    3.5 stars So, this book got me sweating because I had no idea how to rate it. On one hand it was definitely a bit like a telenovela containing every YA trope ever, but on the other hand I love Samantha Young's writing and she somehow made it work. I really think her young adult book...

    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 ...

    THE FRAGILE ORDINARY is a coming of age read as much as it is YA. It centres around Comet, an emotionally neglected 16-17 year old young woman who is finding herself, her confidence and her direction in life. There is a boy, an American boy, Tobias King. He was boy-man swoony and this ...

    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 a...

    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 g...

    I have been an ardent fan of Samantha Young's books for a few years now. It always excites me whenever I get the chance to re-read or read a book by this author. It's safe to say that The fragile Ordinary is a fantastic read! I can see why this book is one of the most highly an...

    Nothing much to say. I LOVED IT! LOVED IT!!!! It was an amazingly sweet and adorable and beautiful and heartbreaking young adult romance. Perfect! I want my own Tobias to walk along that beautiful scottish beach with! I wouldn't mind getting a 2nd one about those tw...

    3.5 stars So, this book got me sweating because I had no idea how to rate it. On one hand it was definitely a bit like a telenovela containing every YA trope ever, but on the other hand I love Samantha Young's writing and she somehow made it work. I really think her young adult book...

    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. ...

    ?4 STARS? Comet Caldwell lives a fragile existence. Separated from total loneliness only by her two best friends and her books, she sits on the fringes of total obscruity in school, and at home is dimmed under the brilliance of her artist mother and writer father. With ...

    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 thin...

    4.5 STARS There's so much I could say about how fantastic The Fragile Ordinary is but I think what I loved and appreciated the most was how relatable it is. This achingly sweet YA contemporary romance checks off all the boxes of an emotional love story, but it's also an incredibly p...

    Maybe 3.5 stars for this YA romance set in Scotland. The Fragile Ordinary is the story of Comet Caldwell. We see her navigating her school life, an environment where she doesn't feel she fits in, managing her emotions surrounding her disengaged parents, and trying to find the confid...

    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?...

    3.75 out of 5. Full RTC for this surprisingly charming story. ...

    The Fragile Ordinary was a book that offered me solace in a world where at times, I feel very much alone. Just like Comet. Books are a way for me to escape and there isn?t a day that goes by that I don?t have some sort of story or book in my hand. It?s a way of life. Comet uses b...

    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 reflec...
