Beatle Meets Destiny by Gabrielle Williams

Beatle Meets Destiny!
by Gabrielle Williams [YA Williams]

Combine one 18-year-old stroke survivor named John Lennon, nicknamed “Beatle” with one 17-year-old girl named Destiny McCartney, who sidelines as an astrology columnist — on a Friday the 13th, no less!

Then add in an existing girlfriend, a twin sister who’s seeing one of her teachers, a cat-shaving fetishist, and an unintentionally-pilfered priceless chair and you get an interesting older-teen novel. Set in Melbourne, Australia at or near the publication date of 2009, the story covers a year and some in the life of these high-schoolers and their friends as they navigate the tricky waters of youthful impulsiveness (or outright stupidity) and developing maturity. Despite some unwise subterfuge and resultant confusion, our titular couple manage to mostly “work it out” in the end. Contains adult language.
