Something Like Fate - Susane Colasanti I honestly tried to push through and finish this but after every chapter I felt like ramming my head into a wall. The writing was very bland. I have a very difficult time ignoring when authors use 'So I said' because it's just so nondescript. Also the whole concept of 'I walked a different way to class and ran into him, it must be fate's really got annoying. Maybe I didn't like this story simply because it is meant for middle school readers. However I think it's simply a case of the author throwing a book together just before a deadline.
