Description

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.

Professional reviews

"Elle Newlands narrates this engaging story of young love and the pains of growing up in a small Scottish suburb. Despite her attention-grabbing name, Comet Caldwell has always been shy and introverted. She is completely overwhelmed by her feelings for the new American boy in school, Tobias. It's even worse that he hangs out with the local bad boys. Newlands's sensitive narration of Comet's inner monologue connects the listener to the prickly teenager. We hear in her own words, including the poetry she's too afraid to recite, how much she longs for attention, affection, and true love. Newlands also excels at using accents to highlight the class differences that may tear Comet and Tobias apart just when they finally come together. N.M. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
