I also liked it how she alternated each chapter between time; with one chapter being told barnholft the present day and the next chapter remembering the summer. One Moment in Time Moment of Truth.

So what happens when secrets are uncovered and truths are revealed? However, in the book, there is a hypochondriac called Lacey, whose barngoldt is treated so superficially that I was close to being offended.

(#62) Book Review: Sometimes It Happens by Lauren Barnholdt

View all 8 comments. Ava left Hannah for the summer to go to camp — right after Hannah got cheated on by her stupid BF. Sometimes It Happens is a fun entertaining story about the complications of friendships and relationships and even though this story is mainly about cheating, and I wouldn’t normally find that subject amusing, but Barnholdt has a way with writing in-depth barnhodt with remarkable wit.

Nothing to worry about. I’m laurej pretending that I need a YA romance novel that’s monogamous. Explore the Home Gift Guide. Thanks for telling us about the problem. I wanted to see how everything worked out. I would recommend somftimes book to someone whom wanted a quick read!

I brnholdt wanted to kick Hannah’s best friend out of the whole situation so they’d get together already!!!! As i said before, i only disagree with the ending, as it didn’t clear up all the questions I had. Something happened that summer. These characters didn’t feel real, and that made the book very difficult to read for me; I couldn’t feel any empathy, or sympathy or sometimfs at all for these cardboard characters. What really happened that night between them? The story was nicely tied up sometimmes I felt there was room for a couple more characters on the romance.

Really, it’s that addicting! He’s not somwtimes a great friend, but a great boyfriend. I hated Ava, I thought she was controlling, manipulative and self-absorbed so maybe it was easier to not care about her feelings in the end. Even when it appears that she’s doing something nice for Hannah, it’s just that, an “appearance”. And why are you parked in the visitor lot? I love how honest Hannah was too honest, though and how she tried her best to do the right thing despite contradicting her feelings and own happiness.


The other characters are equally obnoxious. Hannah, a girl whose best friend is going away for the summer and is leaving her alone. Fun, lovable and totally swoon worthy. View all posts by Clementine Bojangles. The book is involved more in the teenage atmosphere.

I could relate with everything Hannah was going through, cause I mean, who doesn’t get crushed by a boyfriend? Barnholdt even succeeded admirably in showing readers the responsibility one needs to take for their actions, but really it is still cheating.
