The Fragile Ordinary by Samantha Young
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
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 and trying times. The glue that usually cements YA stories—with tough topics, frustrating feelings, smoldering and sweet scenes, and lots of depth—together is hope. Who doesn’t need a little hope in their life?
”How do you conquer each moment, when you have no one on your side?”
Hope meets heart in The Fragile Ordinary in one STAGGERING EMOTIONAL JOURNEY. The fierce and fiery angst of this teen romance made my pulse pound and my heart beat out of my chest. This beautifully broken book brought tears to my eyes as I broke for a broken girl in a broken family. I felt the angst. I felt the heartbreak. I felt the hope. I felt the heart-fluttering love. I FELT EVERYTHING in this stunning story that speaks to the soul.
To thine own self be true. Be true to yourself.
A compelling coming of age love story laced with Hamlet, The Fragile Ordinary’s underlying themes of being true to oneself and daring to be different strike straight to the teenage soul. Told through a struggling but strong teen girl who is beautiful inside out, The Fragile Ordinary shows the value of life and love, and what it means to truly be loved and really live. The characters are full of fire with a story so heady, so harrowing, so hopeful, and so heartfelt. Broken sees broken, and Comet and Tobias are two kindred spirits with beautiful hearts who are perfect together. A slow burn of two broken souls becoming whole, The Fragile Ordinary is an in-depth dive into the teen heart and soul felt everywhere.
”And . . . What if what I really want is you?”
“Then you have me.”
The Fragile Ordinary. Fragile because the human heart is delicate with the teen’s heart the most delicate of all. But ordinary?!? Not at all. Heartbreakingly beautiful and passionately poignant, The Fragile Ordinary flawlessly captures the delicate teen heart and the depth of resulting emotions in a devastatingly stunning story that is nothing but EXTRAORDINARY. Samantha Young has written another heartfelt and harrowing love story that belongs on every young adult shelf.
”The real beauty of life is in 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.
But from the shyness that makes her book-character friends more appealing than real people to the parents whose indifference hurts more than an open wound, Comet has never wanted to be the center of attention. She can’t wait to graduate from her high school in Edinburgh, Scotland, where the only place she ever feels truly herself is on her anonymous poetry blog. But surely that will change once she leaves to attend university somewhere far, far away.
When new student Tobias King blazes in from America and shakes up the school, Comet thinks she’s got the bad boy figured out. Until they’re thrown together for a class assignment and begin to form an unlikely connection. Everything shifts in Comet’s ordinary world. Tobias has a dark past and runs with a tough crowd—and none of them are happy about his interest in Comet. Targeted by bullies and thrown into the spotlight, Comet and Tobias can go their separate ways…or take a risk on something extraordinary.
