Seventeen-year-old Saoirse has finished with exams and is facing a long hot summer before uni. She plans to party, get drunk, watch horror movies and forget all her troubles by kissing girls. Ever since the breakupocalypse with her ex Hannah, she's been alone and angry, dealing with the hole left in her family by her sick mother's absence. Worse, Dad drops a bombshell: he's remarrying at the end of the summer. Enter the scene: Ruby, who might just be the prettiest girl Saoirse's ever seen. A romcom fan and a believer in true love, Ruby challenges cynical Saoirse to try a summer romance with the serious parts left out, just like in the movies. But what happens when the falling in love montage ends?

Review quote

"An outrageously comic, moving debut" -- Guardian "It's so special, so arrestingly heartfelt, and so painfully, gorgeously real" -- Becky Albertalli "Funny, sexy and smart, The Falling in Love Montage is the romcom to beat all romcoms. I loved it" -- Cat Clarke "An emotionally stirring queer romance with witty, playful dialogue" * Publishers Weekly * "Audaciously fills a gap in queer romance. The novel's voice is delightfully brash and no-nonsense ... Smyth paints each character as a complex, messy, lifelike individual." * Kirkus *

About Ciara Smyth

Ciara Smyth studied drama, teaching and then social work at university. She thought she didn't know what she wanted to be when she grew up. She became a writer so she wouldn't have to grow up. She enjoys jigging (verb: to complete a jigsaw), playing the violin badly, and having serious conversations with her pets. Ciara has lived in Belfast for over ten years and still doesn't really know her way around.
