More About A Little Something Different by Sandy Hall
 
 
 
Overview

The distinctive new crowdsourced publishing imprint Swoon Reads proudly presents its first published novel an irresistibly sweet romance between two college students told from 14 different viewpoints.

The creative writing teacher, the delivery guy, the local Starbucks baristas, his best friend, her roommate, and the squirrel in the park all have one thing in common they believe that Gabe and Lea should get together.

Lea and Gabe are in the same creative writing class. They get the same pop culture references, order the same Chinese food, and hang out in the same places. Unfortunately, Lea is reserved, Gabe has issues, and despite their initial mutual crush, it looks like they are never going to work things out.

But somehow even when nothing is going on, something is happening between them, and "everyone" can see it. You'll be rooting for Gabe and Lea too, in Sandy Hall's quirky, completely original novel "A Little Something Different," chosen by readers, writes, and publishers, to be the debut titles for the new Swoon Reads imprint "

Hall debuts with an ambitious but contrived romance, overstuffed with the perspectives of 14 characters, who all hope that college freshman Lea and junior Gabe will become a couple. The novel—the first title from this crowdsourced YA romance imprint—flits so quickly between characters that it's hard to be persuaded by Lea and Gabe's chemistry. Lea's daring roommate, Maribel, witnesses her "meet cute" with Gabe. Inga is Gabe and Lea's creative writing professor, who "plays Cupid" each semester. Victor is an angry classmate who thinks Lea and Gabe would be less annoying if they would just start dating. A Starbucks barista, a campus bench, and even a squirrel all have their reasons for rooting for these two, but Lea and Gabe's awkward, shy encounters consist mainly of small talk, misunderstandings, and covert glances; other obstacles include another girl's attempts at snagging Gabe and Lea's friend's belief that Gabe is gay. Readers may be more interested to discover why Gabe missed school last semester and lost his scholarship than in the inevitable happy ending. Ages 12–up. (Aug.)
