If We Were a Movie

NYU freshman Nate Anderson is a triplet who is desperate to escape his wild and crazy brothers. After they screw things up for him one too many times, Nate flees his housing situation and takes the first available room for rent as far from his brothers as he can get. Enter his new roommate Jordan--a quirky LA girl who believes that everything in life has already been done in the movies. In this heartfelt tale of love, friendship and family, Nate learns how to deal with his new adult life using Hollywood films as a guide. ***This book is part of a multi-author project that features one recurring character—the match maker—but it is a STAND-ALONE novel.*** Content label: This is a new adult novel, however it is also a clean romance. Content rating is PG. There is little to no swearing with mild innuendo. Though a sexual relationship is implied there is nothing more than kissing in the book.

‘If We Were a Movie’ tells the story of ‘Nat’. ‘Nat’ is a triplet and struggles to have individuality from his brothers. Nat applies and is accepted to the NYU music program. The novel begins with Nat’s brothers inadvertently destroying his laptop along with his school project. Soon after this happens the character of ‘Pearl’ is introduced. She is an intricate part of the story and is the common thread thought the ‘Power of the Matchmaker’ series. She in turn introduces Nat to Jordan who ends up becoming his roommate and friend. Jordan is as obsessed with movies as Nat is with music.

I liked the character of ‘Jordan’. She seemed quirky and cute even though a few times she seem to flaunt her families’ money. The charter of ‘Sofie’, Nate’s girlfriend, is portrayed as self-centered and possessive. I would have liked to have seen more three-dimensionality to her personality. I could not figure out a reason (other than that she was pretty) that Nat would want to date her. I also wish the character of Nate had a little more of a backbone. He seemed to put up with a lot from his brothers and ‘Sofie’.
I did love how each chapter featured a different popular movie. It formed a theme for the book and added a fun edge to the story. I also like how the novel wrapped up even if it was a little predictable.
I really liked if ‘If We Were a Movie’ and plan of reading more of Kelly Oram’s novels . It was a super fun read with great characters. The prose was great and easy to read. I would definitely recommend ‘If We Were a Movie’ for a fun summer read.

Good Points
As the mother of twins I can identify with Nat and how being a multiple can be both a good and a bad thing. I was excited to read a book that touched on the subject of a multiple struggling to have individuality. Nat really has a hard time with loving his brothers and wanting to spend time with them while still wanting to do his own thing.
