The creative writing teacher, the delivery guy, the local Starbucks baristas, his best friend, her roommate, and the squirrel in the park all have one thing in common—they believe that Gabe and Lea should get together. Lea and Gabe are in the same creative writing class. They get the same pop culture references, order the same Chinese food, and hang out in the same places. Unfortunately, Lea is reserved, Gabe has issues, and despite their initial mutual crush, it looks like they are never going to work things out. But somehow even when nothing is going on, somethingis happening between them, and everyone can see it. Their creative writing teacher pushes them together. The baristas at Starbucks watch their relationship like a TV show. Their bus driver tells his wife about them. The waitress at the diner automatically seats them together. Even the squirrel who lives on the college green believes in their relationship.
Surely Gabe and Lea will figure out that they are meant to be together….
My Initial Thoughts:
I had none except that Kayla really wanted to read this so I said well I’ll give it a chance!
An ode to shipping. That is what this book is and OMG it is amazing. People who want profound literature this is probably not for you, but if you are looking for an entertaining, sweet, hilarious read, then this is the book for you.
At first I thought that having that many point of views would ruin the story, but it actually worked. My favorite point of view was the squirrels. It was so random and funny, it was great. I do wish we got to see more of their point of views, the main characters. The novel does have a serious side to it which I think many will appreciate.
For once I don’t have much to say except read it. It’s cute, fluffy, and just what you need if you’re having a bad day. A Little Something Different is exactly what the title describes it to be, a little something different.
