In the tradition of Alice Hoffman’s Practical Magic, one girl chooses to change her fortune and her fate by falling in love.
Love is real in the town of Grimbaud, and Fallon Dupree has dreamed of attending high school there for years. After all, generations of Duprees have successfully followed the (100% accurate!) love fortunes from Zita’s famous Love Charms Shop to happily marry their high school sweethearts. It’s a tradition. So she is both stunned and devastated when her fortune states that she will NEVER find love.
Fortunately, Fallon isn’t the only student with a terrible love fortune, and a rebellion is brewing. Fallon is determined to take control of her own fate—even if it means working with a notorious heartbreaker like Sebastian.
Will Fallon and Sebastian be able to overthrow Zita’s tyranny and fall in love?
“I don’t want this to be the end. If I can find love somehow, some way, I want to take it.” page 32
“Life is about making mistakes. If you don’t take chances, blindfolded and frightened as you are, you’re not really living, are you? Heartache makes you stronger. Misery is the stuff of good poetry.” page 37
“There’s nothing wrong with wanting to fall in love.” page 173
This book made me travel to the world of magic. The plot was unique. *I would like to tell you what it was like but it’ll become some -sort of- spoiler :(* It’s indeed a dreamy read. SO SO SO MAGICAL. IT WAS TOTALLY AN AMAZING WORLD.
Do you believe in fortune? If yes, you should read this. If no, you should still read this one too. What if your fortune told you that you won’t have a good future. Are you just going to give up?
Fallon and Sebastian. I loved the character development of these two. They supported each other to get through *something*. I loved the way it ended. THEY WERE WHAT I EXPECTED THROUGHOUT THE END. THE CONCEPT WAS SO GOOD.
If you want to escape the world of reality, then you should read this book. You’ll fall in love with this city. One of my best reads this May.
