Publisher's Summary

For high-school senior Celeste Watkins, every day is a brutal test of bravery. And Celeste is scared. Alienated because she's too smart, her speech too affected, her social skills too far outside the norm, she seems to have no choice but to retreat into isolation. But college could set her free, right? If she can make it through this grueling senior year, then maybe. If she can just find that one person to throw her a lifeline, then maybe, just maybe. Justin Milano, a college sophomore with his own set of quirks, could be that person to pull her from a world of solitude. To rescue her - that is, if she'll let him. Together, they may work. Together, they may save each other. And together they may also save another couple - two people Celeste knows are absolutely, positively flat-out in love. Whether you were charmed by Celeste in Flat-Out Love or are meeting her for the first time, this book is a joyous celebration of differences, about battling private wars that rage in our heads and in our hearts, and - very much so - this is a story about first love.

    "Awesome Narration"

    Loved this book and I now love listening to this narrator bring it to life. I recommend that you listen to Flat Out Matt before this one.

    "Beatifully written!"

    This would be one of my fav contemporaries of all time. It has everything a contemporary book should have. And it is AMAZING!

    This book is so funny and cute and adorable and emotional and thrilling and swoon-worthy. There are just so many scenes that I love so much. I just love every aspect from this book.

    Both of the author & audiobook narrator captured Celeste's voice perfectly. She was very sheltered in the beginning of the book and I love the way she tried to break out of her shell little by little until she became a full-fledged duckling(is this even the right metaphor?). There are definitely character growth for all of the characters in this book. And all of the characters were so lovely and there is not one thing I hate about the characters.

    In all of the funny, cute, emotional scenes, ect. There's a message that Jessica Park is trying to deliver. This book is about acceptance towards yourself. Accept who you are, love who you are, be yourself, don't change yourself for society and I think she nailed that.

    A must-read to every contemporary lovers. And just everyone, literally. Like, really. Read it. I guarantee you, there'll be no regrets involved by the end of this book.

    "Enchanting"

    I thought "Flat-Out Love" was a great read, and this book was even better! Celeste and Justin were both such lovable characters! I highly recommend this series! Movie rating would be PG-13 for some language and sexual situations.

    Tavia nailed this narration.

    Oh yeah.

    Full of joy, love and kindness. Two of the most unique characters. So special to me because I have a son with asperger's. Jessica Park and Tavia Gilbert nailed it.

    Story
    "Sweet/Adorable/Lovable/Funny/Bitter Sweet/Perfect"

    I adored this story! I was worried that it wouldn't live up to the awesomeness of the original first story. But have no fear it does indeed live up to the name, and so much more. I felt so much listening to this it was like a crazy emotional roller coaster (in a good way). I giggled, I laughed hysterically, I awwwed like crazy, I randomly yelled at my phone/ audible app (story) for being so stupid and just freaking shut up and kiss him/ her, I cried, and then I listened again. I wish it would have lasted longer. Whew, it was a lot in a little package and it was so worth every second.
    While the story does center on Celeste and her guy Justin (who by the way I would indeed like to marry, unfortunately they are like the perfect couple so darn it, it would never happen because that would be like a mortal sin or something to break them up), it also has a side story on Matt and Julie that I kinda wish was just more detailed since well I've been so invested in their story/ lives it didn't feel like I got enough of them. Oh well, it was good to catch up with both of them and see how things panned out.
    The narrator gave a five star performance! She was so spot on in certain parts I had to remind myself there was only one voice actor. Jeez with all the emotion seeping through this book you can just get lost in Tavia's performance. A really great job.
    All in all I can't imagine anyone not liking this book, unless you hate heartwarming, lovable, freaking fantastic romance novels. If so why are you even reading these reviews? For everyone else definitely add this to the listen now pile!

    Story
    "Flat-Out wonderful"

    I can't recommend Jessica Park's books more highly. Her characters are real, flawed, and always trying to heal from their pasts. Flat-Out Celeste is the third in the Flat-out series and I think book one Flat-Out Love is a must before reading (or listening to) Flat-Out Celeste.

    I believe that you will be drawn into Celeste's life as she finally makes some friends in her senior year. She also falls in love with a young man who is as quirky as she is, but with different quirks. It is a true coming of age story with some sadness and lots of growing up.
