Review: A Little Something Different - Sandy Hall

14 different points of view, none of which belong to either main character, weave together an irresistibly sweet romance between two college students.

I picked this book up while picking up some necessities from Target.  Why?  Because I had moved, most of my library had just been relegated to storage while I'm living out of my mother's, and because the blurb on the back presented a book that sounded cute and fun, while being completely different from what I'd read before.

Told from the perspective of fourteen different voices, A Little Something Different, is a ridiculously cute book.  I loved how we never had a snippet from the POV of either Gabe or Lea, the main characters, but rather had their creative writing teacher, a Chinese food delivery guy, the oldest bench on campus, her roommate, and even a squirrel among the list of 14 tell the story of their budding romance.

A Little Something Different definitely doesn't take itself too seriously in the telling of the story; however, it more than lives up to its claim of being a fun, quick read you can lose a day or two to.

I'm eagerly looking forward to Hall's second novel, Signs Point to Yes.
