    1. Adorable isn t a word I use often to describe books In Majaland, the word is not even a compliment in that context it s almost insulting, really, like calling a guy cute But there have been a few exceptions along the way, and When It Happens happens to be one of them It s just adorable Told from alternating POVs, this is a story about Sara and Tobey s senior year in high school They both start the year single, but Sara has a small crush on Dave, the new boy, and Tobey has a huge crush on Sara Th [...]

    2. Warning It took about 30 50 pages for me to get sucked into the narrative So if you don t feel the effect super quickly, at least give it those initial 50 pages The book s a quick read anyhow God, I needed this A girl has much to grain from a pinch of romance amidst the midterm hustle I have no idea what worked here to make this novel as, I don t know, endearing Whatever it was, kudos to Ms Colasanti a mi me gusta.Okay, so the theme of this novel is already stamped on the title what happens when [...]

    3. I was born too late I wish I were conscious aware the decade when The Breakfast Club, St Elmo s Fire and Pretty in Pink were cool and hip Then my inexplicable crushes on Andrew McCarthy sa woon and John Cusack sa wooning some , wouldn t be so well, inexplicable But thanks to weekend reruns on ABC5, I have watched them over and over and over again much to my brother s confusion Why am I so into those movies anyway I am very fond of those movies for the same reason I am very much into WHEN IT HA [...]

    4. This book lost me on several fronts First of all, I was hard pressed to understand how the sex obsessed liar Tobey was any better than the equally sex obsessed, but virginal, bully Dave Second of all, the pacing issues in this book e.g Sara finding out that Tobey and Cynthia used to have casual sex meant a frequent glossing over of major developments On one page, Sarah has just found out about the relationship and is angry as hell at Tobey The next page, the beginning of a new chapter, picks up [...]

    5. When It Happens begins on an awkward note The author s use of so I go and then she was like instead of the tried and true he said , she said was distracting than anything else It jolted the reader out of the narrative long enough for them to think, Wow, the author s trying too hard, before sinking back in to the story.With little things like that, it took awhile for it to really feel that Colasanti got into the groove of the story Things started to sink into place between pages 30 50, and the r [...]

    6. THIS REVIEW WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS Literally one of the most awful books I have ever read, and this is coming from a girl who has read a lot of books, and always finds something to like about them no matter what.Unless you re thirteen or have a thirteen year old s ideology of love, I suggest you skip over this one.Sara wants Dave the hot guy and Dave wants to have sex with Sara, the hot smart girl Tobey likes Sara for who she is and also wants to bang her and Sara feels something real for Tobey, [...]

    7. The synopsis of When It Happens was interesting unfortunately, that s not what I cay say about the book It falls short and by a large margin as well I was really psyched to read Susane Colasanti after Something Like Fate Thus, I decided to read this out the three options I had Waiting For You and Take Me There.My feelings about the book could be summed up by a repetitive dialog in the book, You re so much than you re letting yourself be That s what I felt like saying to the author, as the seemi [...]

    8. I read this book on the recommendation of a very sentimental friend, and the novel turned out to be everything I expected predictable, overly forced, and out of perspective Within the first fifty pages, I had planned out the whole entire plot of the book After I finished, I was completely right about the whole thing Every part of the plot line was predictable It s quite a boring read when you already know what happens.This author, honestly, is something out of touch with anything that teenages d [...]

    9. It s one of the best YA novels out there, and definitely the best love story, on par with that of Ron Hermione, or Lily James It s one of those epic ones that you don t logically think exist, and yet, can t help but hopeTobey s the guy every girl is looking for He s sincere and honest and sweet and just a thoroughly lovely open person He and Sara make an unbeatable pair.While Sara and Tobey are the main focus, the other plotlines Maggie s parents, college hunting, etc all work effectively togeth [...]

    10. Maggie s like, Did he call Already, by this line in the second paragraph I was frustrated and disappointed by When it Happens The author is a high school teacher she should have been able to write realistic compelling dialogue However, her writing seemed to fall between corny and contrived The alternating first person narratives between the two protagonists does not present a cohesive story but rather a battle of the sexes and comes no where near the writing of Nick and Norah s Infinite Playlist [...]

    11. When is Happens by Susane Colansanti was a great read I truly enjoyed it I couldn t put it down, so I finished it rather quickly I liked the alternating POVs between Sara and Tobey However, I found myself looking forward to reading about Tobey He was such a great addition to this book About the story Tobey s fallen head over heals for Sara She s smart, focused, pretty, but unfortunately unavailable After waiting for her dream guy to call her all summer, Dave finally asked her out when school res [...]

    12. This was a really cute story about the inner workings of the dramatic teenagers mind.The crushes, the swoons, the plans and plotting of it all brings back fond and not so fond memories of what it was like to be a teenager searching for something real , and then realizing that it s even better then you realized it would be once you found it.This is very dialog driven, and at first I had a hard time connecting with the characters but after a bit I found each of there voices and what I thought was [...]

    13. This was so.ture Let me extrapolate 1 Tobey s EXTREME wooing tendencies 2 SARA.3 SARA.4 SARA.You see where I m going

    14. I cannot, in good faith, recommend this It is a totally vapid novel about a high school romance that is told from two alternating perspectives Sara Ms Smarty Pants and Tobey Mr Indie Guitar Player Slacker Guy I really can t overemphasize how totally shallow the book and its characters are All of Sara s thoughts and conversations seem to be about what she is going to wear on her dates and Tobey is all about his music and trying to get Sara to fall for him It s just really one dimensional and the [...]

    15. This was really fluffy but I enjoyed it a lot It doesn t start off very well but after about 50 pages, I was completely hooked Can t wait to check out Colasanti s other books

    16. I did not really care for this book me Tobey was inappropriate and a pervert at times in this book so I did not enjoy reading it and would not recommend it to anyone

    17. There s just this intensity something real This book is a love story An insta love story And if you don t already know this I am not a fan of insta love I peer into my dresser drawer at my ancient underwear If I were seeing my underwear for the first time, what would I think It all looks kind of damaged Do I need to get new underwear I hate having to ask my mom to buy it for me Everyone wears underwear, but it s humiliating to admit this fact to your mother Even if she does do laundry Suddenly I [...]

    18. My exact thoughts were Is there actually a guy out there like Tobey I always have gotten used to the idea of guys being un romantic and incapable of well, passion that every time when I read a book about a guy professing his undying love to his soul mate , I m taken aback In my mind, guys are so insensitive, and that had me wondering if the fictional characters in the book is actually a rare image of reality living guys So, back to the book, does a guy like Tobey really do exist It s a wide worl [...]

    19. When I finished, I sat on my bed and just thought There were so many 5 star ratings and people gushing about how good it was, did I somehow miss it I m not understanding what people are finding so undeniably cute about this book I can honestly say, this was one of the worst books I have ever read It s not hard to please me Give me a relatable main character who I will like and a good main guy, and I m all into the story SPOILER ALERT My problems began with Sara and her friends Supposedly they ar [...]

    20. First of all, i gave this a 1 star at firstbut then I changed it because I finished the book I am very confident that if a book was a 1 star book I would not have finished it HOWEVER this is the only book that I can remember reading and thinking the whole time y ____ pages until this thing is finally over this is the only young adult book that I have read and thought, man, maybe i , too old for these books I am well aware that these books are intended for YOUNG adults but genernally they are so [...]

    21. Sep 2011.i wish there was a rating for hated it because that s exactly how i felt towards this miserable excuse of a book after i read it.ive thought about writing a review and it was soo bad that i couldn t even do it.but now i m going to.i feel like i need to warn people.i think i read a review for this saying that we would be rooting for the characters well let me just tell you that i most certainly did not root for the characters.i didn t even care what happened to those crappy characters.i [...]

    22. Like other books, i wanted to read this just for its pretty coververy likely of me haha Basically, this one is a very fun, fresh and witty read Since i m a big sucker for happy endings I love love stories like this What i trully like about this one is how it is told in both the perspectives of the main charactersSara Tobeyregarding the same situations The scenes between these two are so sweet, romantic and well written I especially like the remake of the scene fromSay Anything , wherein Tobey st [...]

    23. Sara is on a quest her senior year to find something real and to get into NYU She is a self described nerd and proud of it, yet secretly longs for popularity and acceptance.Tobey comes across as a lazy, but musically talented guy I sort of picture him as a skater boy He is majory crushing on Sara and even with his gorgeous eyes, he just can t figure out how to get her to notice him There is the whole problem of Dave, seriously his nickname sould be D Bag Dave.Sara, for whatever reason thinks Dav [...]

    24. Hmm, can t say that I m very fond of this one I thought the whole plot was really lame No twists and turns, no dramatic events or anything like that While reading I kept thinking this can t be it, something must happen soon and I was always waiting for the big climax I was still waiting for it on the last page.What I found extremely annoying was the style of writing All this and then I was like and then she goes wasn t my thing at all What s wrong with good old I said and she replied Whenever I [...]

    28. Its been a while since I ve read a YA book and after reading this book, I m ready to dive into YA books I m thinking where in the world were these books when I was in high school I think the authors were probably in school like me trying to figure out what we were going to do with our lives ha I m so glad the world of books has expanded into something that is totally unstoppable, whethere with the physical books or efiles all is good in my eyes.When it happens, totally brought me back to my hig [...]

    29. Q Did I like When It Happens A It was alright.Q Did I get confused A Erm YEAH Seriously, I did like the book It s very good, easy to follow between the alternate points of view and Susane Colasanti has done something that few other female authors can do write in a male perspective and make it seem legitimate Which was refreshing.Tobey and Sara are the main two characters Sara is independent, knows what she wants and how to get it, intelligent and a good friend Tobey is bright but doesn s study, [...]
