When I started to get wind of indie authors, Jessica Park's novel, Flat out Love, was one of my first reads. 

Park's lyrical badassery is impressive, especially among the indie author geeks/connoisseurs book lovers everywhere!

She paints a picture, conducts a symphony, and shapes a story that comes alive on the page.

When I learned about the follow up, giving Matt's quirky little sister Celeste, the spotlight, I could not pass it up. And Flat Out Celeste did not disappoint. It is clever and lyrical, original, and compelling.

And then when I had the opportunity to participate in Celeste-Fest, I just HAD to. The following is my celebration of a misunderstood girl who comes home to herself, discovers her inner treasures, and shines like a gem. 

Get to know Celeste Watkins:

And if I had to put a theme song to the novel, anything by Vampire Weekend would do the trick. They capture that Boston-beachy vibe so perfectly, which spans Celeste's world too. 

And a party for Celeste would be incomplete without the legendary curtsy, at the Pacific ocean, of course.
