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. But what do you do when the love of your life is the one person you can't have?
Lani and Erin are best friends, but they are very different. Erin is outgoing and brave, Lani is more of an introvert and a shy person. But a very rare coincidence occurs (If you believe in coincidences!), Erin falls in love with the boy she dates, the funny, kind Jason. Lani is surely happy for her, until she finds herself drawn to Jason, and he drawn to her as well.
As Erin goes to camp, Lani and Jason have the chance to be together. But discovering that your best friend is dating your ex-boyfriend is something very painful even for the outgoing, not-caring-about-anything Erin.
I quite liked one aspect of the novel, the way Lani cares about horoscopes, the way she believes in fate, and the way she cares about the environment. She convinces her friends to believe in what horoscopes say, to recycle the stuff they eat, and to believe in fate and the Unknown.
What will Erin do? And will Lani and Jason have the chance to be together? If you want to know, then you should read Something Like Fate...
I should really say that I didn't quite enjoy the book, it's just your typical teenage story. Jealousy, Betrayal, Making-up, and the Happily Ever After. I wished there was a few sudden twists in the books and a bit more of action, because the book was a bit too slow. I liked it, it might just be your cup of tea, but I wouldn't recommend it...
