When It Happens - Susane Colasanti

Summary: Sara is searching for something real. It's the start of senior year, and the brainy and beautiful teen is determined that this will be the year she finds "it" -- that elusive little thing called love. She's been crushing all summer on Dave, who asked for her phone number at the end of junior year. She's been waiting for his call for months, stressing about her search not for just any boyfriend but the one who truly gets her, understands that she must make it into New York University, grasps the whacked-out relationship she has with her mom. She's got all her hopes wrapped up in Dave, not knowing that Tobey -- the slacker guy from art class who seems to care only about his band -- has spent countless hours crafting a plan to win her over.

Review: I borrowed this book from my friend Kate and it was so cute, it was cuter than a rosy-cheeked baby. During it Sara just kills me with this guy Dave (you'll figure out why), but it just made me want to read it more. I really like Sara's best friends and how they treat each other. It reminded me of my own friends and her experiences with hanging out with Dave's friends, I can totally relate to. Real friends are the best no matter how you cut it, and who really gives a F*** about those "popular" people who think they're all that. Yeah, they are all that.....in their heads. By the end, I'm sure everyone who reads this is rooting for Tobey, I know I was.
P.S. Written in alternating points of view, love that aspect.
