Something Like Fate by Susane Colasanti
17-year-old Lani is best friends with Erin. They share many of the same interests: astrology, numerology, the environment; however, what binds them together is a tragic accident that happened when they were ten-years-old. Lani feels she owes Erin her life, which is why it’s hard for her when Jason enters the picture. When Erin starts dating Jason, everything seems okay, until Jason becomes interested in Lani. Difficult decisions have to be made. Does Fate intend for Jason to be with Erin or Lani?
The storyline is okay and fairly engaging, but the author seems to be trying too hard to sound like a teenager. There are parts that don’t seem authentic.
Themes: friendship, acceptance, bullying, honesty
