Today's book is:
A Little Something Different
This is under the category: A Book told from several viewpoints (in this case - 14)
This is the story of two kids named Gabe and Lea. The people around them think they should be together, yet they can't seem to make things work. Both are a bit shy and a bit awkward. They do like each other, but can't express it. The people around them are trying to help push them together because they are meant to be.
This was an okay book. Definitely written for the younger crowd. It is a sappy love story and a lot of time you are left feeling frustrated about how dumb the two main characters are being. There are 12 people in Gabe and Lea's life that see the chemistry that these two have, and are constantly trying to pull them together. The author keeps referencing a "tragedy" that happened to Gabe to make him the way he is, and - no offense - the tragedy doesn't turn out to be that big of a deal. No one died - just for the record. I won't reveal what it is, but trust me - you will roll your eyes.
I didn't really love the story. It was.....eh. I read it in a day and a half. It is definitely something I would let my 13 year old daughter read - there is no language, or heavy love scenes. And the writing is right at her level. As for adults? I would say pass.
