“Look at these two. On alone, off alone, walking alone. I wish they could be together. No one so young should be so alone all the time.” – Bob ( A Bus Driver)
If you’re into love stories that will make you feel all giddy inside, then you can put this up your shelf of “to-be-read” books.
A brief recap:
“A Little Something Different” is a story about a boy and girl (Gabe and Lea), who both obviously fancy each other, and wherein the everyone around them believes they were made for each other. In the novel, you read the different viewpoints of their friends, classmates, teachers, strangers and even the internal monologue of a squirrel, and how they make an effort to get them together.
This was a really light read, and I found it to be adorable and cute. It’s your typical story where they both like each other, but find it awkward to express so. Ah, it makes me remember what it feels like to be in love and mentally assessing on how I should tell or show him that I do.
Another interesting concept I liked about the novel is that, instead of your usual first-person read of the protagonists, you look into the story from the different viewpoints of the supporting characters. This time, you don’t really know what’s going on with the main characters, and have to deduce their personality and thoughts from the other person’s own perspective about them.
All in all, a good book. Perfect read with a cup of tea and a plate of cookies.
