Book of the Week

Date Published: 15/11/2022

Better than the Movies by Lynn Painter follows High School Senior Liz Buxbaum as she attempts to secure her happily-ever-after. But will her lovelorn imagination get in the way of Liz finding her happy ending?

Full of pop culture references, this is an absolutely charming novel that manages to pack in every conceivable trope, from fake dating to the makeover to the big misunderstanding. Whilst also being a fun read, the novel does cover some heavier topics such as grief and anger in a way that makes Liz entirely relatable. This story ticks all the boxes:

  • Family lessons and growth.
  • Clashing with best friends and learning to forgive.
  • Making college plans.
  • Prom.
  • Navigating crushes and first loves.

This is a great book for lovers of romantic comedies and fans of Jenny Han and Emily Henry.  Check out the graphic below!
