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, something is 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….
Review originally written in 2014:
A Little Something Different was indeed something different. I enjoyed the 14 different view points for the majority of the book. The reason why I didn’t enjoy them entirely was because secondary objects and animals (particularly the squirrel) were used to tell parts of Lea and Gabe’s love story… I totally understand why those perspectives are there, but that doesn’t mean that I enjoyed reading unnecessary perspectives. I actually enjoyed connecting with Gabe and Lea’s friends and family more than reading about their love story. Especially the creative writing teacher. I also liked how a lot of the aspects of the story were on the cover, and how I could identify them while reading. Overall, this book was cute, short, and pretty swoon worthy.
