DNF Review: Finding Mr. Better-Than-You
Finding Mr. Better-Than-You by Shani Petroff
Release date: January 14, 2020
An e-galley was provided by Macmillan via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.
Summary: Camryn has been dating Marc FOREVER—since freshman year! She dropped out of volleyball to go to all his games, switched her schedule around to be in his favorite class, and has been busting her butt to get into Columbia so they can go to the same college. So when Marc suddenly, and very publically, breaks up with her a week into their senior year so that he can date the new transfer student, she’s absolutely devastated.
But why be sad, when you can get even? Inspired by her favorite movies, Camryn decides that the best revenge is a Senior Year well lived, starring a boy who is ever so much better than her ex. With a little help from her friends, Cam is going to have the Best. Senior. Year. Ever.
When did I stop reading?: A couple chapters into my e-galley.
Why did I stop reading?: It just really wasn't holding my interest. Even though I'm past the target ages for YA, I still love most titles and the teenageriness of them. But this one just seemed so...immature and tired right from the bat. I'd lost interest in the concept, and the beginning wasn't capturing my attention. That's not to say actual teens won't like this book! It's just one of the ones that's definitely no longer for me.
