Something Like Fate

Publisher: Viking Juvenile

Publish Date: May 4, 2010

Origins: Traveling ARC Tours

Format: Paperback

Blurb: Lani and Erin are bonded for life. One thing that connects them is their fascination of fate. Lani wonders how much of our lives has already been decided and how much we can actually influence. Since the Unknown can unexpectedly change our lives forever, how much can we really control?

From the minute Lani meets Jason, she can't deny the intense connection they share. It feels like she's known him forever. She's not sure if he feels it, too. But it doesn't matter. Because Jason is Erin's boyfriend. Lani is determined to ignore her feelings for Jason, no matter how powerful they are, rather than risk hurting her best friend.

What if the boy who is your destiny is the one person you can't have?

Review in 5: For Teens, Engrossing, Morally Questionable (?) Can I use that,'s done.

Review: Even as I write this review I am still torn about how I feel about this book. First off, it is very doubtful you will find your soul-mate in high school, not impossible but not probable. People change and you don't really know who you are and what you want in a partner at that age. Now that I got that out no man in the world is ever worth losing your best friend, unless you are 100% positive he is the one and only soul-mate you will ever have, without a doubt. Even then it is best to speak with your friend first. Obviously, I am a firm believer in the don't date the friends' exes.

Susane is definitely a master storyteller. I read this book one sitting and could not put it down until I had closed the cover, she writes beautifully. Suzane also adds great interesting facts in the book about astrology and other sort of "pseudo-sciences" that I find quite fascinating. I just think this book is ok, another great TEEN read, adults might not find it as good as teens might.

  1. Interesting premise. I agree that it's doubtful that anyone would find their soulmate in high school, as you are still growing and will change as a person. And no man is worth losing your best friend over! Think I'll pass on this one. Thanks for the honest review!

  2. Hmm..I love her writing. I have bee wanting to read this. Fun read I think
