Title: How to write a love story

Author: Katy Canon

Genre: Fiction – contemporary

Publication details: Stripes Publishing; London, 2018

ISBN: 978184759212   (Paperback)

What this book is about: Tilly has always wanted to be an author like her gran, bestselling novelist Bea Frost. So when Gran asks Tilly to write her next romance for her, Tilly is thrilled. Only problem is, how can Tilly dream up a swoonsome love story when she’s never even been kissed?

Luckily, she has a plan:

  1. Go Forth and Flirt
  2. Make the Not New Guy at school fall for her
  3. Write it all down

Easy, right? But real life isn’t quite like in the books…

My review: This was not your typical teen romance at all!! For one, our young heroine comes from a family of writers and Tilly already has ‘finished’ a book for her grandmother **(Spoiler Alert)**, the famous Beatrix Frost, but no one knows!! Her adventures in finding material for her grandmother’s next book doesn’t end well, or do they? I really liked the premise of this book and each chapter delivered more about Tilly and her friends. The descriptions were amazing and really well constructed. I really did enjoy the story despite some teenage kissing scenes!! This was funny, moving, and a great read for girls!! 

My rating: 4 ⭐
