Best friends Lani and Erin couldn’'t be more different. Lani’'s reserved and thoughtful; Erin’'s bubbly and outgoing. Lani likes to do her own thing; Erin prefers an entourage. There’'s no possible way they could be interested in the same guy.

So when Erin starts dating Jason, Lani can'’t believe she feels such a deep connection with him—...and it may be mutual. The more Lani fights it, the more certain she feels that it’'s her fate to be with Jason. What do you do when your soul mate is the one person you can'’t have?

    Fate- The development of events beyond a person's control, regarded as determined by a supernatural power. This book is called Something like fate by Susane Colasanti. The title really goes with the setting and everything in the book. If you’re someone that likes and or is fascinated by horoscopes and or zodiac signs I would definitely recommend this book to you. This book does have a lot of mature words and scenes a some points. The main characters in this book are Lani, Jason, Erin, and Blake. The main settings are the high school and Lani’s house. I am estimating that the time time period would be in 2010 based on when the book was published. The protagonists would definitely be Lani and Jason and the antagonist would be Erin. Two MAJOR conflicts would be when Jason breaks up with Erin over mail and when Jason agrees that Lani and Jason won’t talk to each other ever again. A turning point would be when Lani and Erin meet each other and have a fight but them make up and Erin agrees to let Lani and Jason be together. In the beginning of the book Lani is in eleventh grade but for the most part she is in twelfth. In the beginning of the book Erin and Jason are dating. Over the summer when Erin goes to summer camp Lani starts to fall in love with Jason. Blake is also one of Lani's friends. Blake is gay and no one knows except for Lani. But that changes when Lani accidentally blurbs it out to Jason. Blake is verbally abused by his dad. Blake doesn't want his dad to know or else he would be very mad. There is a rumor around school that Blake is gay, when his dad finds out his dad kicks him out of the house. Blake never thought that his dad could get that mad. Blake sleeps over Lani's house for one day but when Lani's mom calls child protection services Blake has to go live with his uncle. It's only 45 minutes away but Blake can still go to the same school. Later on Jason sends Erin a letter to her summer camp saying that he was breaking up with her. While Erin is gone Lani and Jason have more time to get to know each other. Jason and Lani go on a date on the fourth of July and have they’re first kiss. At the end of the summer when Erin comes back she is devastated when she finally finds out that Lani “stole” her boyfriend. Erin is instantly raging that they’re together. Lani makes a promise to Erin that she won’t see or talk to Jason at ALL! Mostly because Lani thinks that Erin doesn’t need to be hurt anymore. Erin is still mad at Lani later in the book. Jason walks up to Lani and everybody is watching them, Jason tells Lani that he can’t wait anymore and he wants to be with her. Right then and there everything changes for her. But you’ll have to read this book for yourself to find out what happens next. This book is really romantic, heartfelt and intense. When I was reading it I would read it all the time. Every flip of a page made my heart beat faster in every second as I was reading with all of the excitement. I would also recommend this book to readers that like intense romantic books also fiction books. All I know is that I loved this book and that you should experience all of the exhilaration and excitement in this book. This is probably one of the best books I’ve read so far.

      I would really like to read this book because, judging from the revue, it seems pretty interesting and maybe even a bit funny.
