Caroline is at a crossroads. Her grandmother is sick, maybe dying. Like the rest of her family, Caroline's been at Gram's bedside since her stroke. With the pressure building, all Caroline wants to do is escape--both her family and the reality of Gram's failing health. So when Caroline's best friend offers to take her to a party one fateful Friday night, she must choose: stay by Gram's side, or go to the party and live her life.
The consequence of this one decision will split Caroline's fate into two separate paths--and she's about to live them both.
Friendships are tested and family drama hits an all-new high as Caroline attempts to rebuild old relationships, and even make a few new ones. If she stays, her longtime crush, Joel, might finally notice her, but if she goes, Chris, the charming college boy, might prove to be everything she's ever wanted.
Though there are two distinct ways for her fate to unfold, there is only one happy ending...
In Just Like Fate, Caroline is at a crossroads, her grandmother is very sick and dying, but being in the hospital is unbearable, because she keeps fighting with her older sister, so Simone her best friend invited her to a party for a bit so she can cleared her mind and relax a bit. So Caroline must decide whether to stay with her grandmother that could die at any time or go to a party with her best friend, just for a few hours. And hence leads to two possible futures in which we see what would happen if Caroline stays and what if she leaves, with alternating chapters between stay and go, we can see how life-changing is her decision.
Caroline she will find herself, grow as a person and grow closer to her dysfunctional family, there is also romance and in the two possible futures there is a guy who is the romantic interest, but what I like most, is that as in either stay and go, we got to see both guys and although she doesn´t interact in the same way with them, I liked the fact that it was part of fate that she´ll meet some guy and several times is mention that certain things are meant to happen, either the way we choose (especially this is what I like most of the story), I really liked the stories are about fate.
I really loved this kind of story, I really enjoy this book, the protagonist is imperfect and has to live with her good or bad decisions. Just Like Fate is light and touching contemporary read, I read it in one day (which is fast for me), I just needed to know what would happen to the protagonist.
I received an eARC of this book from the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange of an honest review.
