Sinossi

Imagine a social outcast: Me. (Luna)
Imagine a popular boy: Him. (Caleb)
Sound like the characters of a cliché story, right? Here, hold my hand. Come away with me. I’ll tell you my story, and you’ll decide.
But I have a warning: Proceed at your own risk. Since it’s a snippet of my life, I’m one of the main characters. And to put it lightly, I’m not the most likable person in the world, cue the earned label. Also, unlike fairy tales, my story is real with a dash of sorrow and loss.
How do I start? Once upon a time…? Shoot me now, please.
The beginning? No, too boring.
Well, let’s start with the catalytic moment that set in motion a chain of events that changed my life, yet again.
As for a happily ever after? Sorry, no spoilers here. You’re going to have to figure that one out on your own. After you read my tale, it becomes yours, and as such, you’re entitled to your interpretation.
So, off we go!
Fasten your seat belts. This ride may get bumpy.
AUTHOR’S NOTE: Due to strong language and graphic sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

HASH(0x98a83f9c) su 5 stelle Loved the story and hero until around 75% - spoilers are marked 14 aprile 2015
Di romance4ever - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle
The story was initially entertaining and certainly fresh. Luna was an atypical heroine. She was a drug dealer who did not smoke, drink, partake in the product and was a straight A student. Also she was not a tramp despite her reputation to the contrary. Until around 75% in the book I was loving the story as well as Caleb. He was sweet, gentle and until then, treated her very well. He pursued her ruthlessly (which I loved) but was patient and careful with her feelings. They did not get physical until he was sure that she was ready and when they did it was hot. Also he was not afraid to tell her that he loved her. He broke down all of her defenses and she in turned admitted to loving him as well. However around that 75% mark I thought I was going to puke and became very irritated. This really hurt my enjoyment of the story that never returned even after the hearts and flowers ending. I thought it was a cheap shot to add drama like that near the end of the book and completely unnecessary. My liking for him never returned. Spoilers are marked below.

SPOILERS:
Around 75% point of the story, Caleb started treating Luna like dirt. He mocked her and used his sweet nickname for her with other girls. He rejected her and was seen with OW including in hot tubs and them crawling all over him at other times. He was with them in intimate embraces even when he had no warning that Luna was showing up, like getting frisky in the the hot tub. It was possible he was using drugs during that time when he was surrounded by others who were but that was unclear. Also there may have been some make out scenes with OW as well but I was so disgusted that I breezed over those parts. He and Luna were separated for many months and he was like that with OW during entire separation. Later he claims that it was for show but never specifically stated that he did not have smex or get physical with OW.

I was disappointed in Luna in that she forgave him way too quickly and after very little apology. Until then I was admiring how strong she was despite all the hardships she endured, which he added to. I know she was experiencing grief but she needed to make him work for forgiveness which she didn't. After his behavior I never regained my enjoyment of the story and had little faith in them being together long term, especially if he had smex or even got physical with those OW.

“The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for.”
Bob Marley

I admit, I was not prepared for Fall Out Girl by L. Duarte. I read the synopsis and thought it sounded really interesting and different. It was…and so much more. I fell in love with the two main characters right from the start so I was completely emotionally invested. I’m not sure how to describe to you my emotions right now except to say that this book just slayed me.

Luna is seventeen years old and is counting the days, weeks, months, until her eighteenth birthday. Because on that day, she will legally be free. All she has to do until then is keep her head down, bide her time, survive. She was doing all of this, until she met Caleb.

Luna’s life wasn’t always like this. When she was little, she had the perfect life. She lived with her Dad who loved her with all that he was. He taught her how to love and care for animals, especially birds. They would spend Saturdays building bird houses and hanging and filling them in the woods. But her Dad is gone now and Luna is forced to live with her Aunt and cousin.

Her Aunt is a drug addict so all the money she receives for Luna’s care goes towards her drugs. With no food to eat, the power getting shut off and survival hanging in the balance, Luna is forced to start selling the drugs just to take care of herself and her cousin.

Luna, though, is a walking contradiction. She is a drug dealer, dresses goth, has wildly colored hair, tattoos and body piercings. But she doesn’t take drugs, drink, smoke or even curse. She spends all her free time volunteering at the local animal shelter and is a straight A student. She also continues her father’s legacy and spends some of her hard earned savings on keeping some of the bird feeders filled that she has hidden in the branches of a weeping willow tree.

“I hated that he made me feel. But, mostly, I worried about the haze clouding my mind whenever he was around.”

Luna knew that something had changed the day she met Caleb as soon as he touched her. That there was something different about him. But Caleb is everything she can’t have. He is the judges son, from a wealthy, influential family. He is gorgeous and could have any girl he wanted. But he wants Luna.

“I was his as if I had been born for that very purpose, as if my body were a puppet, and he was the puppeteer pulling the strings.”

Caleb also knew that there was something about Luna the first time he saw/touched her. He had to know her. So he infiltrates himself into her life as much as possible. He slowly breaks down the protective shell she has around herself. But Caleb’s family has secrets of their own.

Could Luna dare to believe that there might be hope? That Caleb might really care for her? That she could allow herself to love and receive love in return?

This book is just so amazing. It is completely told from the first person, from Luna’s point of view, except the wonderful epilogue told by Caleb. The words in this book are just so beautiful. I was highlighting like crazy. Luna and Caleb’s story is an emotional roller coaster. I loved them both so much.

“We were skin to skin.
Mouth over mouth.
Mingled breaths.
Tangled bodies.
Heartbeat against heartbeat.
We fit perfectly together.”

I am so glad I got to know Caleb and Luna. I won’t soon forget their story. All I can say to you is that you HAVE to read this book. I am including one more quote at the end that I think describes Luna perfectly. I hope you will fall in love with her just as I have.

“I wasn’t brave, or strong, or badass. And all those quirky lines I fed you? A foolish attempt at sounding strong. The truth is: I was just a lost girl. Someone who was clueless on how to get out of the hole she’d dug for herself. I didn’t want to be the way I was. I just wanted to be normal.”

“His arms wrapped around me. It was home. Like a swallow, I had found a home.”

So where do I even begin how to put in perspective of how much I LOVED Fall Out Girl by L. Duarte because this story was so more than an ordinary genre of Young Adult . Fall Out Girl exceeded all my expectations of what I would typically expect to find in a high school romance because the story of Luna and Caleb was so much more. It was the kind of love that paints a literary tale that has the power to grip, touch, and make you feel. The kind of love that leaves you in awe and breathless knowing that without a doubt, your life will forever be entangled and intertwine with this person because this person has left it's permanent mark on your soul. So if L. Duarte's mission was to make me fall then I will happily say that she delivered. Ms. Duarte has made me fall in love with her gorgeous prose, raw characters and the beautiful union of two souls intertwining and setting their hearts, past, and hopes free.

“My love for Caleb was hard to describe. I loved him with madness and delirium, music and heartbeat. Time with him was morphine, bliss , shooting stars, and bursts of energy. It was an angel’s choir and angelic bells, rainbows and free falls, giggles and laughter, baptism and rebirth, blue lagoons and lemon drops.”

Fall Out Girl was a story brimming with so many facets and layers of raw emotions, family, second chances, loss, forgiveness, destiny, hope, heart and most importantly the sacrifices of one's love. They say life is a gift and it should not be wasted. And one of the important aspect of life is the gift to love. For some, love is like a buried treasure waiting to be found. And for Luna, she had experience three kinds of love that changed her. The love of a father, the love of her best friend and cousin, and the love that will alter and shape her to really shine and find her wings.

They say father's love for their daughter is endless. It is a love built on protection, hopes, sacrifices, and dreams. Luna had experienced that and so much more. So when she lost her father to an illness, it changed her. The beauty that once radiated off her was not dimmed. So when she moved in with her drug junkie aunt, Luna's life was forever changed. She was the perfect student with a high GPA but she was an outcast. The goth girl. The girl who had to sell drugs in order to put food on the table, pay the bills, and save enough money so she can provide and protect her cousin, Jake. So what happens when the outcast catches the eye of the rich and popular kid at school? Can two people from two different social class find true love?

“And I craved Caleb. I craved more of him. More skin to skin. More. Just more. The desperation with which I wanted him was both terrifying and thrilling.”

Caleb was the quintessential rich boy. He was popular and had the charisma to make any young girl fall to their knees. And so why would a guy who is clean cut be madly attracted to Luna? The answer to this is simple. He saw her inner beauty as well the beauty she radiates from the outside. He saw a beautiful woman who had the charisma, confidence, and fierceness. He saw the girl who ignited something inside him. Yes, this may the story of the rich boy falling in love with the girl who was dealt with a sh*&ty hand. But the story of Luna and Caleb was so much more than that. It is the story of a boy who didn't see an outcast but a girl who stood out among the endless sea of women. He saw the stars and the moon. He saw Luna. The girl that he was meant to be with.

“The many secretive facets of me, hidden deep inside my soul, exposed, disrobed for him to see. The fearful, the lonely, the broken, the ugly, the hopeful.”

What really stood out to me with this book was the maturity of Luna. She was dealt a sh*&ty hand in life after the passing of her father but she made do and accepted her life. She didn't say woe is me. She was a fighter. A survivor. And most importantly, she had a heart of gold. A heart that was waiting to find the person to fit perfectly with hers. The person who saw the real Luna. The girl who loved birds, the girl who loves classic literature, the girl who loved animals, and the girl who is willing to sacrifice for the people that she loved. And Caleb saw that and so much more.

“I love you, Luna. When I saw you for the first time, I had this knowing, this certainty that you were the love of my life. No, it’s beyond love. When my eyes found yours, my entire being connected to you. I could feel parts of my soul twisting, stretching like tentacles, reaching for yours. I felt my flesh prickling, my heart expanding, making room for yours. I knew then, what I’m telling you now, Luna. Without you, I’m condemned to a lonely existence. To a meaningless life. You are entwined with the deepest parts of me. You are ingrained in my body, mind, and soul.”

The relationship of Caleb and Luna gripped my heart in how strong, fierce and loyal they were to one another. I loved the simplicity of their relationship. It was Luna and Caleb. A love that was tangible and palpable from the start. A love that can comfort and shine light upon the darkest moments in our lives. A love that can transcend. So what else can I say but go read this amazing and breathtaking book by L. Duarte. Get ready to fall in love with Ms. Duarte's words as she captures and tells a beautiful, bold, and uplifting tale of true love, sacrifices, and second chances.

HASH(0x99187120) su 5 stelle that you are not stuck being who you have been forced to become…it’s never too late to change who you are if you don’t like who 21 maggio 2015
Di Tammy Hornbeck - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
Title: Fall Out Girl
Author: L. Duarte
Date: March 2015
Place of Publication: Milford, CT

Introduction: I believe L. Duarte’s goal in writing this book was to expose the fact that we all wear masks. We all struggle with our identities as a person, as a member of a group, as part of a community. Especially teenagers! Teenagers have this particularly hard because while they are trying to find out who they are, they are often forced by circumstances to be people they don’t want to be. I believe that L Duarte wrote on this subject because she wanted to tell teenagers two things: one, that whatever your circumstances, you can change them with hard work, determination, and an education; and two, that you are not stuck being who you have been forced to become…it’s never too late to change who you are if you don’t like who you are.

Summary: A single moment in time and a tragic accident changes Luna’s life. She has become one person, but soon her circumstances force her to become another harder, colder person who makes choices she would regret and would not have chosen before. Life happens that way sometimes. While making bad choices she is determined not to stay this way and to escape her circumstances. I like that Luna does not make excuses so much as explains and that she clings to the plan she’s created to change who she was forced to be and be who she wants to be. Eventually the darkness ends and the light shines on Luna, but only because she worked for it, she didn’t give up!

Critical Assessment: The author’s central argument is that you can change who you are if you don’t like whom you are and that your circumstances don’t have to define you, you can change if you want to bad enough. The author chooses a semi-autobiographical point of view from the perspective of a teenager in high school. This was done for two purposes: one, because it is during the teen years that most of who we are is formed and set for adulthood; and two, because teens need to know that you don’t have to carry your pain and circumstances any longer than necessary and allow them to follow your into adulthood.

Conclusion: This book was highly enjoyable. It was well written, it is very relatable and relevant for today’s youth and even for some adults who have allowed their circumstances to determine who they are and by association, what they’re worth. Its language is teen appropriate and I believe they will be able to relate and believe in Luna and Luna’s story. I know I did! The cover design and the interior design work together to complement and enhance the story. I think this is a life-changing book would hope that it could get into as many teenagers’ hands as possible!

HASH(0x98f3d5c4) su 5 stelle Luna wasn’t your typical girl and that was what I loved about her 20 aprile 2015
Di Cezanne (BCS Reviews) - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle
“My choices weren’t the ones many would have made, but it was what I had to do at the time. I own them.”
The cover and synopsis is what first drew me to Fall Out Girl, but the words, the writing, and Luna herself, is what made me fall for this book.

Luna, wasn’t your typical girl and that was what I loved about her. She was a girl on a mission. As soon as she turned eighteen, she was going to head off to college and take her cousin Jacob, so they could escape their life. She had always been taught integrity and to follow the law, but when her dad unexpectedly passes away, she was forced to do what she has to in order to survive. She was sent to live her Aunt Lace and cousin Jacob. Living with her aunt brought a new darkness to her life. Her aunt addicted to hard drugs and was caught up with a drug dealer. Luna and her cousin, have to sell drugs to keep her aunt out of trouble and so they can have the basic essentials, like food and water.

“In my defense, it didn’t happen overnight. I didn’t wake up and just decide to be a jackass. No, it evolved gradually, curling up on me like fog slowly swallowing everything along its path.”
Luna lived behind a facade. She used her piercing, tattoos, emo clothes, and stand off-ish demeanor to keep people away. She was incredibly smart and determined and despite what people thought about her she brushed it off. I loved her sarcasm, her whit, and her honesty. She owned her decisions and she never let anyone make her feel bad for them.

“The tricky thing about fear is: it wears a different mask every day.”
When she meets Caleb, he shakes things up In her life. He’s the first person to puts a crack in her tough exterior. He wants her and he sees past her bravado. He was sweet and passionate about her. They come from two drastically different lives but he doesn’t care about what people think or say about her. Caleb has his own family issues to deal with but he’s there for Luna. When the unthinkable happens it threatens their potential happiness and Luna’s future.

“We were skin to skin. mouth over mouth. mingled breaths. Tangled bodies. Heartbeat against heartbeat. we fit together perfectly.”

“For the duration of the time we were together, I wanted to see myself through his eyes. I wanted to feel alive, beautiful, and whole.”
Ultimately this was a story of self discovery. Luna was torn between who she was now and who she used to be. I admired her strength and whit and Caleb was the perfect compliment to her. I loved the writing in this story. I loved the writing in this story. I enjoyed the flow of the words and the imagery. L. Duarte did a fantastic job of bringing the characters to life. This was the first book I read by this author but I look forward to her upcoming work.
