Book Review – Fall Out Girl

📚Fall Out Girl by Lu Duarte

⚪️Source: author request – thanks Lu.  

 

⚪️ Blurb: 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.

⚪️ My Review: The Intense, intriguing, and complete madness of the blurb I was sent for Fall Out Girl teamed together with that edgy cover give me an overall feeling of ‘I actually need to read that book like now.’ So, I did.

As a book I must say it is one of those I find extremely hard to write a review for. Why? Because you cannot give anything at all away. Not even the tiniest hint. By doing so you will ruin the brilliance the reader will feel when reading it. Because of that all I can give to you is my word. My word that not only does it give you one of the best narratives and heroines in YA history, but also has you strung along in more ways than you will ever know how. From the start you’re smirking, you’re connecting, you’re cut deeper and deeper with every word. With extremely clever writing, and a plot that is real, refreshing and unbelievably deep. It leaves you wanting more and more. It gives us a look into life of social structure, dependency, and love.


The best thing for me was the way in which L. Duarte managed to use cliches and take the piss out of them at the same time to me was genius! It has to be one of my very favourites so far this year. I know it will take one hell of a book from any genre to take it down.

The ultimate book of feels.
5/5

P.S.. Right the word love is spoken in this book numerously. The way in which I read this reminded me of someone. The voice inside my head when the word was spoken was most definitely British. Not the blonde- haired, authentic, American boy I was reading about. It took me a while to remember who says this word and who it was I was thinking of. It was Louis Tomlinson from One Direction. This threw a spanner in the works for me, but I made it work. Obviously! Who doesn’t love a British, indie heartthrob mixed with pure bred American?
