Product description


Holly Bourne is something special, she's got it. --Patrick Ness

Sharp, honest and laugh-out-loud funny, Holly Bourne's radiant novel offers a welcome twist on a regular YA romance. --iBooks - Books We're Loving This Month for October 2017

There is more clear-sighted feminist analysis (and many more belly laughs) in Holly Bourne's latest young adult novel... This is Bourne at her outrageous, courageous, necessary best. --The Guardian

If you're looking for a YA contemporary novel that's a little bit different, and includes family, messed up relationships and feminist rants that you might not initially expect - this one's for you! --Lots of Livres

Funny, poignant and heartbreakingly real, It Only Happens in the Movies is a partly about falling in love and getting swept away despite yourself, and brilliantly captures what this can feel like. --The Telegraph

About the Author

Holly Bourne is an author and a journalist. Holly's first two books, Soulmates and The Manifesto on How to be Interesting, have been critically acclaimed and translated into six languages. The first book in the Spinster Club series, Am I Normal Yet?, was chosen as a World Book Night book for 2016 and was shortlisted for the YA Book Prize. The Spinster Club series has also inspired the formation of Spinster Clubs across the UK and Ireland. Before becoming a full-time author, Holly was editor of TheSite.org - a charity-run advice and information website for young people.
