L.M. Preston - Flutter of Luv - Review
Flutter of Luv is a cute short story told in episodes about a young teenage girl named Dawn, who is very much a tomboy and a boy named Tony, a handsome football player. They are complete opposites that happen to form a friendship by hanging out together. It was love at first sight for Dawn, who never thought he would be interested in a girl who wore braces and glasses. Tony appreciated their growing friendship and liked her very much. She was different from any other girl he knew. He became her staunch ally, when the others were teasing her about being a tomboy.
It's a Cinderella story for Dawn as she wins the heart of her prince. As their lives separate towards the end of high school, when Tony moves out of town, she is devastated but moves on to other friendships, but not like the one she had with him.
As fate would have it, they come back into each other's lives just before Dawn starts college. It is a story of liking someone, for not the way they look to other people, but how they relate to you. It's about not caring about what others think, but following your heart.
It was a short, but inspiring, story of a strong friendship that grew into much more. I enjoyed reading it, as will many fans of the YA genre.
