Life sucks for orphans Callum Tate and Harper Bailey. Kicked out of their foster homes because they suffer the 'eighteen disease' with nothing but a hundred dollar check from the government and a pat on the back, they're forced to rely on a system that failed them miserably. So they sit. They sit inside Social Services, waiting for their social workers to call their names and offer them the miracle they know will never come but they sit anyway because they have nowhere else to go, no other options on their very literal and figurative empty plates. But as they sit, they notice the other. Although captivated, they each come to the conclusion that life is complicated enough without throwing in a boiling tension that can't ever be acted upon because they're both too busy thinking about where their next meal will come from but when their names are called and both are placed on a year long waiting list for permanent housing, suddenly relying on each other seems like a very viable plan B. And, oh, how lovely Plan B's can be. Well, except for the psycho from Harper's past that haunts her and, oh, yeah, there's the little issue that neither of them knows they're in love with the other. Needless to say, Callum & Harper's life just got a bit more complicated. “One day, you and I are gonna’ wake up and be alright. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow but one day. One day. I promise you.” - Callum Tate

0.5 A hot mess - poorly written and unrealistic
This review was originally published on amazon on August 11, 2012. It was one of my most popular reviews, with 43 out of 45 customers finding it helpful. The issues that made this book a one star read:One-dimensional wish-fulfillment heroine. Harper was unflawed, perfect, so gorgeous that all of t...

4.0 Callum & Harper
Really loved this. There was a bit at the end that felt unrealistic to me and that kept it from being a five star book. Don't read this line if you haven't read the book: When Harper is recovering from some major issues (broken back, internal injuries) she recovers a bit too well and fast. In a matt...

Not counting toward my goal since I flounced so soon in to the story. Sorry but when two homeless kids mention their signed copy of Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird and vintage Indian motorcycle... I want to throw my iPad! I mean hey, no big deal, we're just sitting on a shitload of cash. Don't mi...

I have a love/hate relationship with this story. FA's novel, Vain, sits happily on my favorite shelf and I picked up this book expecting the same quality. These are the reasons I wanted to rate this one star and stop reading a dozen times: This is a first draft manuscript. Has to be. The editing pro...
