Perfect for fans of Becky Albertalli and Nina LaCour, this queer coming-of-age story from the author of The Falling in Love Montage is wry, multilayered, and unflinchingly honest.
Aideen has plenty of problems she can’t solve. But when she stumbles upon overachiever Meabh Kowalska having a full-blown meltdown, she sees one that she can actually fix. Meabh is desperate to escape her crushing pile of extracurriculars. Aideen volunteers to help—by pushing her down the stairs.
Problem? Solved. Meabh’s sprained ankle is the perfect excuse to ditch her overwhelming schedule. But when one of their classmates learns about their little scheme, more “clients” start asking for Aideen’s “help”—kicking off a semester of traded favors, ill-advised hijinks, and even an unexpected chance at love.
Fixing other people’s problems won’t fix her own. But it might be the push Aideen needs to start.
Two girls embark on a summer of montage-worthy dates (with a few strings attached) in this hilarious and heartfelt lesbian rom-com that’s perfect for fans of Becky Albertalli and Jenny Han.
Seventeen-year-old cynic Saoirse Clarke isn’t looking for a relationship. But when she meets mischievous Ruby, that rule goes right out the window. Sort of.
Because Ruby has a loophole in mind: a summer of all the best cliché movie montage dates, with a definite ending come fall—no broken hearts, no messy breakup. It would be the perfect plan, if they weren’t forgetting one thing about the Falling in Love Montage: when it’s over, the characters have fallen in love...for real.
Ciara Smyth’s debut is a delightful, multilayered YA rom-com that will make you laugh, cry, and absolutely fall in love.
Un roman d'amour pas comme les autres.
Saoirse fuit toute relation sérieuse, elle est allergique aux clichés romantiques autant qu'à l'engagement, d'ailleurs elle n'est plus certaine de vouloir faire des études... À quoi bon si c'est pour perdre la mémoire comme sa mère ? Son équilibre réside dans des règles strictes : pas de sentiments, rien de personnel. Mais lorsque la belle Ruby, de passage pour l'été, lui propose seulement des premiers rendez-vous, inspirés de ses films d'amour préférés, Saoirse accepte. Que risque-t-elle après tout si ça ne va pas plus loin ? Sauf que... bien entendu, rien ne va se dérouler comme prévu !
