Just Like Fate by Suzanne Young and Cat Patrick [Romance, Family & Relationships]
The main character, Caroline, is faced with a choice, and that choice largely deals with the overwhelm she feels in life as well as her crush, hence the tagline, “Caroline is at a crossroads.”
After I set students up with that background, I explain the book’s design. Chapters one and two are titled “before” and readers learn about the choice Caroline faces. Then, the subsequent chapters alternate between “stay” and “go.” After readers learn about Caroline’s choice, the book splits into what would happen if she could make both choices.
This First Chapter Friday book works well because students are often intrigued by the book’s structure.
