I started this book on the drive to work (my son drove, so let's dispel the panic that I read while driving. I WISH I could!) and finished it that night, after supper, after dishes, after kid stuff. It's a fast, breezy read, but cute. I think I might have gotten a little teary-eyed even, but then again, I am guilty of fully investing myself in just about every book I read.
High school junior Eliza has had her precious journal, in which she writes down all of her fears, and to add to those fears, she is afraid that her ex-boyfriend, Cooper, has it. To get back the journal, she has to perform several of her fears, and Cooper seems to be behind it all. So for one night, she and two of her friends attempt to fulfill the tasks and get back her journal.
Not the most fully-developed characters, and not a story that expects you to ask a lot of deep questions, but One Night that Changes Everything is fun and silly. Silly in a good way, I guess. I found myself wanting more, though. More Cooper, particularly, because he seemed very one-dimensional. Eliza is annoying, but in a very real, teenage girl kind of way. You get to know her, but her friends, Cooper and his friends are too flat.

One Night That Changes Everything is about Eliza. She is devistated to learn that her book of "fears" has been lost. It is a book that contains all the things she wishes she had the nerve to do. But they are much more ...personal..things and definitely something she doesn't want people to see. Things get worse when she finds out a group of boys from school have her book..and her ex-boyfriend Cooper just happens to be part of that group.
Cooper is used as the go-to person between Eliza and the boys with the book. He is there along the way as she is forced to achieve some of her wish list items from the book. Eliza is a strong character and she was a lot of fun to read about. It helps you realize that everyone has fears--maybe kissing a crush or singing in public-- anything at all. But even the strongest person may need to just break free from those fears. Eliza gains confidence throughout her night of tasks. At the same time, she realizes she may be wrong about Cooper.
Cooper seems to be on Eliza's side, and you really can't help but love their conversations throughout the book. Both characters really learn a lot about themselves, and each other, as they spend the night together.
If you want something light and fun with realistic teen characters, pick up this book or any others by Lauren! You won't be disappointed!
