    One thought on “The Fortunes of Indigo Skye”

    1. Reviewed by Tasha for TeensReadTooIndigo Skye is pretty pleased with her life. She has an amazing boyfriend, she loves being a waitress at the homey neighborhood restaurant, Carrera's, and while her family may not be well off, they sure are filled with love. While some situations may not be ideal, Indigo knows she will always be supported by those she loves. Whether it is her direct family or her family over at Carrera's (also known as the Irregulars), she knows she always has someone to turn to [...]

    2. SPOILER ALERT: I did in fact finish this one, despite the fact I stopped nearly every chapter and thought about chucking it. Caletti is in fact a decent writer, so I stuck it out in the hopes that the style would be matched at some point by the plot or the characters. The basic plot: a teenage waitress gets a tip for two and a half million dollars, and her life changes for the worse until she learns some lessons. I told this plot to one of my friends, and he said "Oh, so it's like that Nicholas [...]

    3. What gives, Caletti? I found your previous books so charming, so lovely!Here is a quote a few pages in that shook me to my very core:He kisses me and our tongues loll around together, like seals playing in water.Uhhh I never want to kiss anyone ever again.You know, I really hate books about working class folks written by middle/upper class folks who don't seem to grasp what that actually means. They don't automatically call their mothers "Ma" and spend mealtimes talking about what they'd buy if [...]

    4. I don't know if I:a) Need a break from YAb) Need a break from Deb Calettic) Just don't like this bookI do know that I don't really like the main character. At all. She is a little too self-aware or self-righteous or self-something for my taste. When I was 18 I was a moron. Either way, I just can't finish this book. I can hardly make it through a chapter a day, and if Faith didn't finish it I feel like it's ok that I don't either. Thank you, Faith, for saving me.

    5. Indigo Skye doesn't really want much from life. She's happy with her job as a waitress, her boyfriend and her are crazy in love, and her family, however boisterous, is loving and lively. That's why Indigo's life is turned upside down when a mysterious stranger leaves her a 2.5 million dollar tip. At first, Indigo doesn't know what to do with herself. First, she tries to give it back. When that doesn't work, she tries to embrace it, buying expensive cars and a TV that will hardly fit in her house [...]

    6. Eighteen-year-old Indigo Skye never worries about money much. Her family is constantly struggling to remain afloat in the economy and lives in a shabby apartment. Despite of this, she is content with being a waitress full time instead of going to college. Indigo's life is changed one day when a mysterious man leaves her a large tip - two and a half million dollars.The Fortunes of Indigo Skye was, frankly, all over the place. There wasn't really a plot line or anything; it was just events happeni [...]

    7. All right. So this book was about a girl named Indigo Skye, who is an 18-year-old waitress/high school student (she graduates during the book), who gets a 2.5-million-dollar tip. (Remind you of anything?)My biggest complaint about this book is that it was not a quick read. Maybe that sounds stupid, but the writing style is just one that I can't read quickly I don't even know what it was the short sentences, maybe? But the 298 pages took WAY longer than they should have. You know what else it cou [...]

    8. I love the way The Fortunes of Indigo Skye is written. Deb Caletti has a way with words. It's almost a magical touch. A way of capturing perfectly ordinary observations--details of daily life--that just sparkles.In its simplest, The Fortunes of Indigo Skye, is a story of a girl who loses and finds herself. Indigo Skye is a waitress. She's happily content with being a waitress. She loves her life in fact. But when one of her customers leaves her a big tip--as in crazy big--then Indigo's life beco [...]

    9. My eyes are still wet and my heart is still swollen after reading this book! Deb Caletti has a way with words that makes her beautiful story easy to read, laugh out loud and cry with the main character. It is also a big plus that she is from Issaquah, Washington so the places Indigo goes are really there. (Indigo’s mom graduated from Lake Washington High School! I loved the connections I could make) Even though the main character, Indigo, is a recent high school graduate, readers of all ages c [...]

    10. The Fortunes of Indigo Skye was my first book by Deb Caletti, I really liked the idea of it but in the end it was a bit too predictable for me. Usually predictable is fine but for some reason this time it sort of made the story suffer for me, like everything happened so conveniently and easily.Nevertheless, I still enjoyed the book. I thought Indigo was a rather likable character, how selfless she was and how carefree. She seemed to really love her life and only with the money she is given is sh [...]

    11. The two things I've noticed the most about other reviews for this book are how many of Caletti's books they've read in the past and that they are overall disappointed in this book. So, up front, this is my fourth book I've read by Deb Caletti. It was the most disappointing one so far. I think the idea of the story is overall decent, but the book is just SO slow and honestly, just not that exciting. Also, I hate Trevor. Their relationship is everything I hate. They're 18, high school seniors and [...]

    12. This book was very nice to read. It could have been better, but it didn't need to be.I very much liked the emotions of the main character, she never lets herself stray too far outside of her own morals, but she pushes the limits just enough to let you know she can be careless.The characters are a bit flat, but not super flat, and there isn't much development of their personalities (even though this is the supposed central theme of the book) but you still get a bit of a feel for them, it's just m [...]

    13. Plot: Indigo Skye works as a waitress at Carrera’s restaurant and is happy, so happy in fact that she wants to continue being a waitress in lieu of college. The diner has a handful of quirky patrons, the tattooed Leroy, Joe the boxer, Trina of the hot car, Nick who was once accused of killing his wife, and Funny Coyote the poet. Indigo lives with her mother, her brother Severin and sister Bex and seems quite happy. Then, one day her life changes as a guy comes in on a Vespa and orders black co [...]

    14. Indigo Skye is pretty pleased with her life. She has an amazing boyfriend, she loves being a waitress at the homey neighborhood restaurant Carrera’s, and while her family may not be well off they sure are filled with love. While some situations may not be ideal, Indigo knows she will always be supported by those she loves. Whether it is her direct family or her family over at Carrera’s (also known as the Irregulars) she knows she always has someone to turn to. All is good until a new man sta [...]

    15. I have read many other books by Deb Caletti and I have enjoyed all of them a lot. I enjoyed this book too. It was sweet, funny, had an awesome main character, and taught a good lesson. First the plot was really good and I felt that it was realistic too. It made the lesson seem far more real. I thought that it was good and well written. But at times the plot would just stretch on with no point. But then it would became interesting again. The characters were all good, but then they changed. For on [...]

    16. 3 1/2 stars.This book was confusing for me. I think that Caletti always has significant lessons and all her books and the ways she uses words is very intriguing. However, this storyline was just boring for me. I mean, the only thing that happens is that she gets a lot of money. Plus, I thought that her family and friends were treating her differently when she got the money, so I can understand why she would be mad/frustrated with them. I mean, they just assumed that they could use her money beca [...]

    17. This is one of those books that feels like it takes an eternity to read, not because it is particularly long, more because it's just not that interesting. I like a book to make me want to keep reading it and not want to put it down, not the case here. Premise, Indigo Skye has a couple million dollars given to her because she was honest about her dislike/hatred of smoking. She was working a job as a waitres, a lower class member of society and a sort of social outcast at her school.The story proc [...]

    18. I don't know what to say about this one. I loved the cast of characters: Indigo, Severin, Bex, her mom, Trevor, Freud, Chico, The Irregulars, Jane, Luigi, the Vespa guy, her dad, her dad's friends (minus his wife), Keiko, etc. But something about the story was just not great. I can't put my finger on it. And it took me longer to get through than it should have. Better than Wild Roses but not better than The Six Rules of Maybe and Honey, Baby, Sweetheart. Onto the next Caletti book I go

    19. I enjoyed the book, but I felt like there was no depth to it. Indigo is a very likeable and down to earth character and we learn early on that she comes from a single parent family that struggles financially, and she has a job working as a waitress where she is left a 2.5 million dollar tip after telling a customer he shouldn't smoke. After reading this, I just feel so empty. I don't know any more than I did when I first started the book.

    20. Deb Caletti hits another one out of the park. This isn't some message-heavy book about money being the root of all evil. Caletti has too many amazing characters to count, and she knows them all inside-out. I feel like her voice was a little different, lighter, than her previous books, and at times Indigo's voice reminded me of Maureen Johnson on her blog. This was a beautiful, heartfelt book with full-of-reality characters.

    21. I really enjoyed this one. Indigo, for the most part, was so adorable and funny. I enjoyed all the characters so much Indigo's family, her boyfriend, all the restaurant customers. Just a really great and fun story. Deb Caletti writes in such a gorgeous way. Lots of profound/thought provoking statements, but then fun and crazy lines as well.

    22. Caletti takes a familiar theme, adds a coming-fo-age theme, her trademark humor and stirs well with a cast of warm quirky characters. The message is tried and true but the delivery is painless and great fun. A fabulous book to take on vacation or to read AS a vacation.

    23. Just doesn't work. The language is to philosophical and lacks depth. The characters don't ring true. The plot plods and then resolves way to fast with little reason or purpose. Released March 25, 2008

    24. Great, great book, great characters with fun to read ideas like how many places you've put you head down for sleep. Loved it!

    25. This book was ok, and I would definitely give Deb Caletti another try. In fact, and this is totally OT, but I swear I have actually read Caletti before because absolutely everything about her covers are familiar, but maybe that's just YA sameness. This book was very predictable, in fact, almost comfortably predictable, if it weren't annoying. Indigo reacted the exact way I predicted to the money she received. Her boyfriend, family, and friends reacted the exact way I predicted. It resolved the e [...]

    26. Fun, and peppered with quotables, as Caletti's books always are, but overly contrived. The story's moral is stated and restated so relentlessly and so inelegantly (for Caletti, anyway) that I felt a little insulted, as though she did not trust me to come to the correct conclusion without a lot of assistance. I realize this is young adult fiction, but surely young adults can be relied upon to grasp this cautionary tale without being beaten over the head with the central message repeatedly. Despit [...]

    27. Just the premise alone has me hooked. It made me think about what I'd do if I suddenly received over two million dollars. There was nothing wrong with the book itself, it just didn't click for me.

    28. I hate these in-between books. They aren’t anything extraordinary, but they aren’t frustrating or angering. They’re in the boring, average, middle class on the pyramid of book ratings. Of course, this book was on the lower side of that category. I didn’t really enjoy reading it, but it was definitely a good book to absorb the dull words on the pages while I could just take my mind off of the daily struggles of life and relax. That may sound to some of you like this is a perfect book, bec [...]

    29. Maybe it's because I read The Nature of Jade first, but this book fell short for me. Indigo was self-righteously opinionated and getting a fortune did nothing to change that--in fact it made it worse. Her speech on smoking to her boss was one thing, because they had a set rapport and relationship, but to a stranger who she just happened to notice has a pack in the pocket of his jacket? He made no move to light up, or even interact with the pack of cigarettes. It is just present in his jacket poc [...]
