Something Like Fate by Susane Colasanti


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?

Ok, let me just tell you this. I have wanted to read this book forever. The plot appealed to me as well as the picture on the front cover of the book. I just couldn't wait to read this book. And that is why I was so upset when I actually did read this book. The book didn't live up to the expectation that I had in my head. Not at all. I was very disappointed with the author's writing style and I felt that the book was written for younger teens. It had a very immature aspect to the whole book and I almost didn't want to finish the book. I'm still going to try reading another of Susane Colasant's books because the story lines do sound like they will be good, I'm just hoping that the rest of her books aren't as immature as Something Like Fate.
