Rated 4 out of 5 by from When It Happens I thought it was great of the book changed sides between Sara and Tobey. I find in most books I'm always wondering what is going on in the other characters mind, and I was greatly impressed with the story outline. Definately reccomend it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from When It Happens It started off as a really good book! I love how one chapter it would be her side of the story and how the next chapter would be his..then back to her. But i didnt like the ending, it was a alright ending but i wish it would have ended diffrently!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just fabulous! I really enjoyed the book. I have to say, some parts seemed a little rushed, but when you're in the mood for a positive, funny love story, this is the book to read! Sara mainly wants to find someone she'll really conect with. And when Dave (the boy she's been crushing on all summer) asks her out, how couldn't she say yes? Tobey, on the other hand, is determined to win Battle of the Bands. What does he wish for? To win Sara's heart. He is convinced that they share that special 'connection' and will do whatever it takes to get the chance to prove it to her. Even if it means becoming Sara's best friend, Laila, slave for life. Will the their mutual connection bring them together?
