Synopsis : Something Like Fate
I love the cover. If the cover seems to give a vision about how bad the guy is, well actually in the story, the guy, here named Jason isn't a bad guy at all. So here's the thing, Lani and Erin is a best friend, they are more than best friend actually since they went to dreadful accident together that made Lani afraid so much of water, and Erin is the one who saved her life. Someone says if people went through an accident together, they are hard to be separated by then. That's what Erin and Lani's like. They are like a soul sister now.
They live in the small town where everybody knows everybody there and it means gossips can spread up so quickly like a plague. Jason, Lani, Erin and Blake went to the same school. Most of the kids thought that Erin and Blake are couple. Because they spend most of their times at school together. But eyes can fool you sometimes, Blake is actually a gay , and nobody knows about it even his grumpy Dad.
Erin and Jason are hanging out for a few times, sometimes Lani and Blake joined them. After having a few talks, Jason and Lani found out so many similarities between two of them. And they become more comfortable to each other. Too bad Jason has been in a relationship with Erin. And Lani knows pretty well that she needs to hide and burn her feelings (If possible) to Jason because Jason is Erin's now and she wouldn't want to risk their friendship ruined over a relationship.
But what if you have tried so hard yet the feeling is still there?
It scared Lani how her feelings can betray her. She wants to forget about Jason and try to live a normal life. But the more she tried to forget, the more she knows that it's impossible to do it.
Is the guy really worth the risk?
I think you should read it by yourself to find out, but I can tell that there is a twist of fate in this story. And from it, you will learn many things. What I love from this book is the way Lani against her fears. It doesn't matter how many times she tried and failed, most important is she kept trying and never gave up even once. Two thumbs up for the courage and spirit.
There's another guy named Connor and I love him more than Jason because he was so kind, funny and cute. And tell you the truth, he's a friend to share the joys and sorrow. How i wish he can replaced Jason's place in Lani's heart. (⌣́_⌣̀)
Well, it's a light reading and fun as well. I enjoyed every single words and this book surprise me by showing the fact that how words can be so hurtful especially when your closest persons are the one who said it out. Yet it taught me many life lessons particularly the importance of saying the truth instead of hiding it until it blows up.
That's what I love in reading. Reading one book to another book means we travel someone's life, learned anything about the way they struggle, get through things, move on , etc. Grow up doesn't always need years. It needs time of course, yet reading books will help you get to know a lot better about the needs to be thankful for everything.
Books are your windows to the world.Mom knows I am a big spender if it comes to books. But she never asked me to stop buying books even once. (1) She knows it's just a useless thing. (2) She loves the way books made me look more mature in facing things in my real life.
My favorite words :
One thing I've learned about boys? Is that when they ask if you have a boyfriend (or they say that you have one, so you either end up confirming that you do or you don't) , it means they're interested in you and they're trying to find out if you're available.
Why can't everyone understand that we're all human different but the same?
This just proves how quickly your life can be destroyed. Even when you think things couldn't possibly get any worse.
It's scary how powerful hate can be.
You can't ever know the real anybody unless you're friends with them. And sometimes not even then.
