It Only Happens in the Movies by Holly Bourne


Genre : Young Adult Contemporary

Publisher: Usborne Publishing

My rating : 4,25/5 stars











This book was such a refreshing Young Adult contemporary and I just can’t get enough of Holly Bourne’s books!

This book is about cliches in movies and our main character is absolutely sick of them. Someone broke her heart and her mother is having mental problems. She wants to escape her life so she starts working at a cinema. The most stereotypical boy is working at that cinema and you know what happens then….

I loved how the book talks about cliche things but still has them in the book to make fun of them. For example the gay best friend or the jealous ex girlfriend.

This book talks about such important things like sex, the first time and what being in an actual relationship is like.

The main character was one of the most normal and realistic teenage girls I have ever read about. She pointed out all the problematic things the love interest does without being annoying.

The ending was just perfect and this book was just amazing and so entertaining!
