Lea and Gabe belong together…or at least that’s what the majority of the people in this book want to believe. So why do strangers, from bus drivers to squirrels, want this relationship to blossom? Because Lea and Gabe are practically the same person! And two boring people must realize that they have feelings for each other, even though they barely speak to one another. Are you following this? Because A Little Something Different left me wishing that I had read, well, something different.
The first issue that I have with this novel, and unfortunately it is the only reason this one stands out from other stories, is the multiple points of view. While some were okay, others were pointless. Why do you need to know what a bench (yes, you read that right) is thinking? How does that help the story? And why do I care that the main characters like to talk to the same squirrel–because that makes sense–and it can’t find its acorns?
