Awakening Foster Kelly by Cara Rosalie OlsenMy rating: 2 of 5 stars
If only a pile of wayward curls and the inability to stay on her feet were seventeen year-old Foster Kelly’s most pressing concerns. Unfortunately, stubborn hair and clumsiness are just the tip of it. At the age of five when Foster is told, “You don’t belong here,” it was only a mistake, but the result is one broken heart. These four carelessly spoken words have shaped and shadowed Foster, and now—a senior at Shorecliffs High-school—she seeks the wallflower’s existence, denying herself the most casual of friendships, much too afraid that someone will see what she believes is certain: she does not belong anywhere—or with anyone.
This reality would continue to suit her just fine; however . . . Love has a long-standing history of undoing broken hearts.
Like a comet, an unexpected arrival knocks Foster out of the crowded, starry sky, sending her directly into the limelight. Exposed and afraid, she will attempt to regain anonymity; but it isn’t so easy now that someone is watching. He pursues this shy enigma, confronting Foster’s deepest fears head-on, and in the process falls wholly and completely in love with her. But there is something he is not saying . . . a secret capable of certain ruin. Either he will break her heart once and for all, or he will heal it.
In the end, though, it is Foster who must decide if she is worth mending.
*I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.*
I tried liking the book but sadly, I failed.
I don't get every-single-thing told in the book. I don't understand Foster. I don't understand her parents. I don't understand Dominic. I understand nothing.
The words were creatively chosen and I admit that certain parts were quite beautiful but the thing is I didn't understand them, at all.
Why? Because one moment I was reading about a butterfly and the next thing I knew I was reading bout a bird. :c
And then there's Foster. Her name is so weird that it feels weird to even say it. She kept going 'blank' and I just don't get why. (I have a theory that she was mentally retarded)
And the plot? I can't even figure out what the real plot was.
So my conclusion is that this book is not for me. Not now, not ever.
