Shortisted for the YA Book Prize 2018

The greatest love story ever told doesn't feature kissing in the snow or racing to airports. It features pain and confusion and hope and wonder and a ban on cheesy cliches. Oh, and zombies... 

Bad boys turned good, kisses in the rain, climbing through bedroom windows... It only happens in the movies. 

When Audrey meets Harry, it’s the start of a truly cinematic romance – or is it?

Audrey knows that Harry is every movie cliché rolled into one. But she still chooses to let him into her heart...

YA star Holly Bourne tackles real love in this hugely funny and poignant novel.

A bestselling British author and journalist, Holly Bourne is the author of the Spinster Club series (including the novels Am I Normal Yet?, How Hard Can Love Be, What's a Girl Gotta Do).
