Book Review: “A Little Something Different” by Sandy Hall
Book Reviews / September 14, 2014

“A Little Something Different” is a romantic comedy for anyone who dabbles in drabbles, a college age meet cute split up into 14 different points of view. When Lea and Gabe bump into each other at the beginning of the semester, their chemistry is obvious to everyone around them, from their best friends, their creative writing teacher, the local Starbucks baristas, to the park bench and a squirrel. With a shared love of “Buffy”, a joint class, and an instant attraction, getting together should be easy. If only Gabe could get over his issues and crippling shyness and Lea could get over her trepidation to make the first move.
