Sweet-Salty Popcorn

Everything like in a bad movie? Or worse, like in a romance novel

Becoming Phil’s fake girlfriend is really the last thing Ruby wants. Because she’s sick and tired of worn-out clichés. But before she knows it, she and Phil are in the middle of a love story fit for a film. And only Ruby can decide whether there will be a “happily ever after”.

Her new romance novel once again distinguishes Lena Hach as one of the best young adult writers. It sparkles with wit, irony, humour, lightness, depth with a lot of heart and emotion. And on top of that, it plays with over 20 popular tropes of this romance genre. A masterpiece that has you simply sit back, relax and enjoy.

They have a high recognition value – that is both a blessing and a curse at the same time.

Fake Dating
Two figures pretend to be a couple – and surprise! – in the meantime

Naturally they would rather chop off all their limbs, than to confess exactly that.
