The Fragile Ordinary - Samantha Young
I Picked Up This Book Because: I like the author.

The Characters:

Comet Caldwell: loner and bookworm
Tobias King: new guy, delinquent reformed to his previous good guy statis
Comet’s friends Vicki and Steph.

The Story:

Comet would rather be lost in a fictional world than out in the world with real people until Tobias King transfers to her school. The troubled American teenager is running with a rough and fast crowd while living with his cousin. After being assigned to work together on a class project Tobias and Comet get to know each other and even become friends. Their relationship further blossoms into the romantic variety. Both have issues in their home life that must be forced and overcome but they find they can do these things as they lean on each other.

Of course it’s not all sunshine and roses but they find a way to persevere. I liked Comet almost right away, Tobias too once we got to know him a bit. They both came from situations that made them have to grow up quick. That can do a number on anyone and I think they handled it the best they could.
