When It Happens by Susane Colasanti
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I always enjoy Susane Colasanti books. Sara is a smart girl and doesn't mind being nerdy but does have a few acceptance hang-ups. When new student Dave acts interested, Sara waits all summer for him to ask her out, which he never does. Now it is senior year and Dave does ask her out but Tobey, band geek slacker really thinks Sara is someone special and without telling Sara what a jerk Dave is; Tobey makes his own plan to get Sara's attention and show her he is something special. I really liked characters Sara and Tobey; they have a nice group of friends and get each other. When Sara was seeing Dave; she had to choose between her friends at lunch but Sara liked being at the popular table. It was over time she realizes she is not connecting with Dave. When Tobey tells her best friend, Laila his feelings for Sara; Sara begins to see Tobey in a new and different light. A good romance and I enjoyed the band and songs aspect of their friendship/relationship.
