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.
When it Happens was such a cute book! You have Sarah the cute smart girl and then you have Toby the sweet, cute, slacker guy. Even though they seem to be completely different, they actually do have a lot in common. Plus you know how everyone says that opposites attract!
The characters in this story were done very well. The best thing about this book would have to be the two different perspectives. One was Tobys and the other, Sarahs. It was interesting seeing each characters view on events. The only thing that bothered me about this book was its length. I thought that it was just a little bit too long.
Overall, this book was pretty good. I recomend it to anyone looking for a cute and funny read.
