    Finding Mr. Better-Than-YouRelease Date: January 14, 2020
    Find it: Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes & Noble

    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.


    Cam, the ultimate lover of rom-coms, has her perfect senior year planned out. She’s going to have the best time ever with her friends and then attend Columbia with her longterm boyfriend. Except then her own rom-com comes to a sudden end when Marc breaks up with her. To make matters worst, Cam doesn’t have any extracurriculars to include in her college application since she dedicated so much of her time to Marc. Now she’s on a mission to get over Marc (added bonus if  it makes him jealous in the process) and beef up her college application.

    Finding Mr. Better-Than-You is a fun read about finding yourself with the help of supportive friends. Going in I thought this would be a cute rom-com (finding someone after getting dumped), but I loved that the story is most of all about friendship! It was such a great message to see Cam figure out that you don’t need a boyfriend to be happy or fill a void. She let boys derail her own goals, dreams, and happiness, but was able to grow and learn that what she wants is important.

    Cam’s voice was so funny! I loved her interactions with her friends—her best ones and the new ones she makes—and her inner thoughts. Plus she’s a rom-com fan like me, so of course I loved her. I think it’s important to have a character like her out there and hope this will show teens that there’s so much more for them out there, especially if they feel like they wasted time on a relationship that ended.

    Overall, Finding Mr. Better-Than-You is a cute story filled with so much friendship!

    My Rating:
