Flat-Out Love is a warm and witty novel of family love and dysfunction, deep heartache and raw vulnerability, with a bit of mystery and one whopping, knock-you-to-your-knees romance.

Something is seriously off in the Watkins home. And Julie Seagle, college freshman, small-town Ohio transplant, and the newest resident of this Boston house, is determined to get to the bottom of it.

When Julie’s off-campus housing falls through, her mother’s old college roommate, Erin Watkins, invites her to move in. The parents, Erin and Roger, are welcoming, but emotionally distant and academically driven to eccentric extremes. The middle child, Matt, is an MIT tech geek with a sweet side … and the social skills of a spool of USB cable. The youngest, Celeste, is a frighteningly bright but freakishly fastidious 13-year-old who hauls around a life-sized cardboard cutout of her oldest brother almost everywhere she goes.

And there’s that oldest brother, Finn: funny, gorgeous, smart, sensitive, almost emotionally available. Geographically? Definitely unavailable. That’s because Finn is traveling the world and surfacing only for random Facebook chats, e-mails, and status updates. Before long, through late-night exchanges of disembodied text, he begins to stir something tender and silly and maybe even a little bit sexy in Julie’s suddenly lonesome soul.

To Julie, the emotionally scrambled members of the Watkins family add up to something that … well … doesn’t quite add up. Not until she forces a buried secret to the surface, eliciting a dramatic confrontation that threatens to tear the fragile Watkins family apart, does she get her answer.

3.0 Flat-Out Love by Jessica Park - Review
I admit, the only reason I read Flat Out Love was because it was this month pick of my book club BookCirle. I would have never picked it up since I find the German title sounds childish and the cover not very attractive. But in the end I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. The book is about “...

This review was originally posted on Bookish Things & MoreQuickie ReviewWhile listening to this book, it reminded me a lot of the movie Running with Scissors.  The Watkins are really quirky, and unconventional.  They are hiding something but Julie can't figure it out.  There are some hilarious momen...

Audiobook rating: 3.5 starsBook rating: 3 starsInitial thoughts: Well, Flat-Out Love was something. The resolution was twisted and yet I kinda expected it by the time I reached about a third of the book. Personally, I thought Matt was a disturbing character but in light of all that had happened, the...

That's pretty darned good chick lit. And for the life of me I did NOT see that ending. Maybe because it was 2 in the morning.
