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?

Publishers Weekly Review

May 10, 2010 – Sixteen-year-old Lani feels an instant spark with Jason, but tries to ignore her feelings because he's dating her best friend, Erin. When Erin goes to summer camp, Jason breaks up with her and Lani starts seeing him in secret. Lani and Erin are both obsessed with fate—horoscopes, birth charts, dream analysis, etc.—and Lani must decide if her relationship with Jason is meant to be, even if it is what a fortune teller predicted will destroy her bond with Erin. Readers will understand both Lani's connection with Jason, who "feels like home," and her bond with Erin, which was crystallized when they were in a car accident years earlier, but has been weakening. Erin's reaction to the romance is intense, and Lani soon find herself a social outcast, while her friendship with her closeted gay friend, Blake, is strained after he's outed and harassed. Lani's obsession with the mystical can feel more like a device than an innate part of her personality, but her struggle with fate nonetheless adds needed depth to this familiar romantic triangle. Ages 12–up.

K, friend Heather and I were chilling at Barnes and Noble and we ran into this book. We picked up. Got a Starbucks. And read till the store closed. Unfortunately, it was 20 bucks and I was broke. I was 15 PAGES away from finishing it! It was REALLLLLY GOOOD. Buy it. It's cheaper here than in the store:)

Great book.

Although the beginning seemed a bit slow, overall, this was an amazing book. It really captures the story of a teenage love that both inspires and leaves a good feeling with you. I recommend this book to teenage girls ages 14 to 18.

This book rocks

Best book ever and this is coming from a person who doesnt like reading couldnt put it down till i finished susane rocks!!!!!
