published May 3rd, 2022
In this hilarious and heartfelt debut novel, an aspiring screenwriter learns sometimes love has its own script.
Harry wants nothing more than to write Hollywood screenplays. He knows the first step toward achieving that goal is winning a screenwriting competition that will seal his admission into the college of his dreams, so he’s determined to spend his summer free of distractions–also known as boys–and finish his script. After last year, Harry is certain love only exists in the movies anyway.
But then the cause of his first heartbreak, Grant, returns with a secret that could change everything–not to mention, there’s a new boy in town, Logan, who is so charming and sweet, he’s making Harry question everything he knows about romance. As he tries to keep his emotions in check and stick to his perfect plan for the future, Harry’s about to learn that life doesn’t always follow a script.
ROM! COM! Set before the summer of senior year! Surfboards! Cotton candy! Carnivals!
It’s functionally a ‘cozy’ romance! It’s like Grease but with less singing! (And also only the song “Summer Lovin”. Okay I have never actually seen Grease so maybe don’t listen to that.)
Sometimes also we are reading Harry’s superhero screenplay and it’s supposed to be thematic but I skipped those parts (and was fine with reading the rest of the book) so if you don’t like them, just skip them.)
It’s fun! It’s funny! It’s a great beach read! It’s a fun little romance! Pick it up! (Four stars.) Bookshop link here.
