Synopsis

Love Fortunes and Other Disasters by Kimberly Karalius

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?

An unusual love story that will delight readers. --School Library Journal

Kim's work is full of magic, wonder, adventure and excitement. --MochiManiac, Swoon Reader

The writing is delicious, and the plot clever and new. The story rings true, consistent and soundly set in the realm of magical-realism. Definitely swoonworthy! --Janelle, Swoon Reader

A whimsical, dreamy breath of fresh air. --Kristianna, Swoon Reader
