A heartbroken teen, with the help of her best friends, goes on a quest to find the perfect boyfriend, and in the end learns that some things are more important than boys in Shani Petroff’s fun YA contemporary novel Finding Mr. Better-Than-You.
Camryn Roth has it all planned out: a perfect senior year with her friends and then it’s off to Columbia with her boyfriend, Marc. But the first week of school, everything falls apart. Not only does she not have enough extracurriculars for her dream school, her relationship falls to pieces when Marc publically dumps her!
With the help of her two best friends, Camryn is determined to pull her life back together. Step one, more extracurriculars. Step two, get over Marc and find someone better.
Shani Petroff’s newest rom-com is a love letter to friendship: to those who help you find your true self, stand by you no matter what, and support your plans even when they know they’re doomed.
Praise for Shani Petroff:
“Fans of holiday movies, rom-coms, and ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’ will enjoy My New Crush Gave to Me . . . Petroff’s festive story will have readers baking gingerbread cookies and buñuelos at any time of year.” —VOYA, on My New Crush Gave to Me
“A worthwhile read. Flirty and fun.” —Booklist, on Romeo & What’s Her Name.
“Okay, I’ll leave you with your movies, but,” she said, emphasizing the word, “you have to promise you won’t watch one where the girl gets back with her crappy ex.”
“No promises,” I said, loading up my fork with another giant heap of macaroni. “I love second-chance romances.”
She shook her head. “Uh-uh, it will give you too many ideas. Contrary to your life motto, life isn’t a rom-com. Promise me you’ll pick something else to watch.”
I wanted to argue the merits of living life as a romantic comedy, but I didn’t have it in me. Right now, my life was anything but romantic. Instead I just agreed with her. “All right. I promise.”
We said our goodbyes, and I resumed scrolling through my movie choices. Between the streaming networks and all the movies I bought, I had quite the impressive selection. Even if I ignored all the second-chance romances, there were tons of other tropes to choose from. Friends to lovers, secret romance, falling for a royal, pretend relationships . . .
The last one caused the tiniest sliver of an idea to form.
A bad idea. A really bad idea.
An idea Terri would positively hate, but an idea that could be my answer to everything. An idea that kept growing and growing and was now going full steam throughout my head and taking over my entire being.
What if I really did try to live in a rom-com? Date someone else to make my ex jealous, and maybe, possibly, hopefully, fall for the new guy. I’d watched it happen on-screen and read it in books hundreds of times.
Or, at the very least, maybe I’d rile up Marc so much, he’d come running back. This could work. Yeah, Terri was going to kill me, but it was worth a try.
I deserved the senior year I’d dreamed about.
I was going to find someone so much better than Marc and rub his face in it. I was going to get into Columbia and live my dream New York life. I was going to get my happily-ever-after. I might even find love.
But most of all, I was going to make Marc regret dumping me.
