A Fantastic Mess of Everything
by Beck Medina
Genre: NA Contemporary
Release date: August 14th 2016
Summary from Goodreads:
Millie Alvarez is a college senior with dreams of being a best selling science fiction writer like her favorite author, sci-fi mastermind Luke Danielson. She fantasizes about dating Rod, her handsome, young writing professor, who has a fan base of his own.
Of course no one knows this but her two best friends, Fran and Mike. In the real world, Millie is anything but a success. She always gets casted in the worst roles in her college’s musical productions, has a single subscriber to her writing blog, and struggles to be with anyone but Fran and Mike. She even avoids meeting Trent, an exchange student from London who matches with her on the dating app Charmed. Sam always wants to hang out with Millie, but he isn’t her type; he’s too skinny and happy and won’t stop asking Millie about all her favorite things.
But things spiral out of Millie’s control when Fran moves out of their dorm room to live with her sister and her estranged dad won’t stop calling her to make amends. To top it all off, the pain inside of Millie’s chest is worsening. Millie must decide if she’s ready to face everything head on. Can she do it? Is she stronger than she thinks she is? All Millie knows is that her life is one big mess that she cannot seem to escape.
Millie Alvarez is not a normal person. First off, she writes science fiction, a pastime better suited for a retired scientist than a 22-year-old girl. Secondly, she might be the only person in the world under 50 to get type cast as the old lady in all of her college’s musicals. And she’s not much of a people person. The only people she really likes are her two best friends, Mike and Fran.
But when Fran moves out of their dorm room to live with her sister, Millie’s estranged dad starts calling to make amends, and she becomes attracted to Rod, a handsome, young English professor, Millie must accept that it might be time to step out of her anxiety-ridden bubble and face her fears head on. With a little help from Sam, a charming theater mate, she just might be able to do it.
So, yeah…Millie is definitely not a normal person. But it’s her best quality.
