The Falling In Love Montage By Ciara Smyth

In this adorable romance and sapphic coming-of-age story, Saoirse, our main character, is dealing with a lot. Her mom is in a facility for early-onset dementia, and she’s more alone than ever after a falling-out with her two best friends. Plus, she strictly doesn’t believe in love – as in, none of the cheesy romance movie, meet-cute, fluffy montage stuff. At a chance meeting during an end-of-term party (dare we say, a meet-cute?), Saoirse begins to do what she never thought was possible: fall for Ruby, the girl with the blue freckle and love for romcoms. Ruby proposes a plan to forget about the falling in love part and do all the cliché romcom dates, no strings attached. The Falling In Love Montage brings us as much cuteness as it does self-discovery and self-love, and leaves us wishing for our own montage!
