Book Review: When It Happens - Susane Colasanti

Title:When It Happens
Author: Susane Colasanti
Release Date:1st May 2008

Senior year. Sara wants two things: to get into her first-choice college and to find true love.
Tobey also wants two things: to win Battle of the Bands and to make Sara fall in love with him.
Dave, the boy Sara was hoping would realize she exists, moves in on Sara first. But Tobey is impossible for Sara to ignore. He gets the little things that matter to her and, most importantly, he feels like something real. Can a slacker rock star wannabe win the heart of a pretty class brain like Sara?

My Thoughts: When I first read the blurb on this book I could immediately think of someone who I would relate to this book. However I think that the blurb made me think that the contents would just go in a certain way. I would say it is misleading in some way.

I thought that this book would be much like a Sarah Dessen books due to the story, also because she recommended it and on the book it says that it is like her books, however it was very different in many ways. For starters I have to state that if you want to read this book there is alot of strong language is used in this book. I think that it is a nice change to read this book from two views instead of one which gave the characters more depth. 

 I really enjoyed this book. It's a simple story of a boy wanting a girl but she is taken so he has to get her to notice him. This book covers what you would call a "perfect" guy and a little bit of soul mates.

However as much as I enjoyed this book some of the situations which the characters were in were hard to think would actually happen, or maybe it's just that I live in the UK, like telling you teacher your love life...? I just find that odd, no matter how cool you think your teacher is I just think it's weird to tell them you dilemma's.

Recommend or not? A good girly-girly read and a sweet romance....Recommended :)

What did you think of the book?

  1. This book is completely cliche, typical, without a doubt the solution that you suspected when reading the back. And even with that piece of information, it was a wonderful read. It made me smile the whole time. If you're upset about something, this is a book that will definitely cheer you up. It made me giddy when I finished it.
