Review: 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.

How long can Lani keep running from the boy who might be her destiny?

Lani and Erin are best friends, but they are completely different. Lani is an introvert and Erin is an extrovert. Erin starts dating Jason, and when Lani meets him, she instantly feels a connection. Of course because she is a good friend, she does not act on her feelings. But how can she run from fate?

I had a few problems with this book. One was that Lani seemed to be a bit hypocritical to me when she talked about how much she wanted to save the environment. She complained that Erin's car only got 24 miles a gallon, but she has no problem riding in Jason's Jeep. I did not like how cruel Erin became towards the end of the novel. It was sad to see her stoop so low to ruin her best friend's school life. 

Overall, this book was a quick read. It had some aspects of it that I did not like, but I am still glad I read it.

Rating: 3/5
