In somstimes end, everyone is paired up once again, but not the way you might think Until Sometimes It Happens. And, wow, did I love this book! Contemporary novels are my favorite and Sometimes It Happens was a fantastic addition to the genre.

Brimming with drama, humor, romance, and adventure- this book had it all. I especially liked the alternating chapters from the summer to the first day of school and how everything tied together.


Plus all the characters were fantastic and happenw realistic!

Hannah had one crazy summer and she is now dreading the first day of her senior happfns. Because this day will bring together Hannah and the three people she just can’t bear to see. After a summer filled with drama, love, and betrayal- Hannah doesn’t know what to do. Sometimes It Happens was told in chapters alternating between the present Hannah’s first day of 12th grade and the past her intense summer after junior year.

On the last day of her junior year, Hannah’s boyfriend, Sebastian, cheats on her and leaves her with a hap;ens heart. Luckily, she has barnholddt best friend Ava to help her recover.

One thing is for certain- this is going to be a summer to never forget. Hannah was such a likable character and her humor and wittiness made me like her even more. While she did make some bad decisions, Hannah is someone I would want to be friends with in real life. She was honest and you could tell how much she barnhopdt for her friends. Reading about her work at the diner was another great side story.

Not enough YA characters have jobs summer or otherwise and it always adds a lot to the book and makes the character even more realistic.

Lacey was another fantastic secondary character. Her hypochondria added a fun and entertaining aspect to her character and she was a great friend to both Hannah and Noah.

I adored the way Sometimes It Happens was told. The different chapters left it nearly impossible to put the book down, especially since most of them ended in cliffhangers. Each and every character in Sometimes It Happens was so real I felt like they might just step off the page at any moment. Everything that happened had a believable outcome and all of the characters were faced with difficult decisions.

Lauren portrayed all of her characters and lauuren situations so realistically and I loved every minute of it. I felt haplens Hannah when things got tough, but I only wanted the best for her. Lauren Barnholdt has written a fantastic contemporary novel with Sometimes It Happens and I can’t wait to start sharing this with all of my friends.


For fans of Sarah Dessen and Elizabeth Scott, this book should be added to everyone’s summer wishlist. Other books by this author: I’m guessing from the summary that his name was later changed to Ryan?
