What's Raising Our Pulse Discussion and Giveaway: Just Like Fate by Cat Patrick and Suzanne Young

Today's post comes from What's Raising Our Pulse Book Club. I am going to answer a question that comes from the book and give you guys the chance to win a copy by answering below.
The question comes from Just Like Fate by Cat Patrick and Suzanne Young. Here is the summary: 
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...

The book is told from two point of view and unfolds with what would happen with each decision.
The question is:  Have you ever looked back on a decision you made and wondered how your life would have changed if you had done something differently?
When I applied for colleges, I got into three different schools. I picked the one that was closest to home, because I was afraid to move away from my family, my friends, and also changing my doctors. I always wonder what would have happened, if I changed my mind and went to a school farther away. Overall, I like my university and have made some great friends that I care about. A part of my mind causing me to wonder what if...
Now it is your turn to answer for the question in the comments below for a chance to win a copy of Just Like Fate and a mini magic eight ball. The contest will be open till the 19th at midnight and is US only. 


  1. I think everyone has looked back on some choice in their life at one point or another and thought "what if I did that differently" so I'm no different, although I like to think I made the right choice each time.

  2. I've often wondered what would've happened if we had moved to a different town when I was in elementary school. It wasn't my decision, but I can trace a clear line of events that may only have happened by living in that town, going to those schools, knowing those people...
