Weird and Wonderful by Cece Barlow

Genre: YA Contemporary Fiction
Release Date: February 13th 2017

Summary from Goodreads:

Gin Autry must finish the last semester of high school in eclectic Austin with her hippie grandmother while Gin’s brother waits for heart surgery in Houston.

Instability reigns, but Gin uses the principles of feng shui to find balance and send positive energy to her brother. She also secretly hopes her voice-over actress dream will advance and true love will show up.

Instead, she falls for the wrong guy and clings to the wrong dream. Nothing in Gin’s life is balanced, but when death threatens her brother, she discovers true balance is about listening, compromise, and the guy in the friend zone. 

My Review:   Gosh I love me a Texas author.   When this blog tour opened up I have to admit I was pretty excited I love when a Texas author writes a book that is in fact set in Texas.  Either way that is not the point.

This book was cute but really real.  The emotions were believable and the character development was so real that you felt as if you could know the characters, they could be you… your friend… your loved ones.     We have all fallen for the wrong guy before and to me that dug deep in this story.  I loved Gin.  I was constantly rooting for her, I couldn’t put it down because I wanted her to have a happy ending.

Does She?  Well you will have to read the book.

I also loved how eccentric the “hippy grandma” was, I loved how it all tied quite well into the Keep Austin Weird campaign.  I loved the feng shui in this book.  I mean hell I just loved this book.  The story flows quite well and when it ends you will feel the same way.  I promise ya’ll cause this book is in fact weird and wonderful
