Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Bella shot to fame when Richard and Judy chose her Hunting Unicorns as one of their Book Club titles last year. This has the same lovely writing but is very different being about a girl who manages a cinema, has an actor boyfriend whose suddenly doing well and suffering from lack of confidence. Itâs a fun read for film buffs as well as romantics.

Comparison: Lisa Jewell, Susan Fletcher, Isla Dewar.
Similar this month: Sarah Jackman, Jill Mansell.

Synopsis

Daydream Girl by Bella Pollen

An intelligent, wonderfully funny romantic comedy by Bella Pollen, author of Hunting Unicorns, the novel voted favourite summer read by viewers of Richard and Judy. Sometimes life can be like a bad movie. You sit through it, hoping it will get better, suspecting that it won't and wondering at what point you can reasonably walk out...Kit Audrey Butler is the manager of the Orange, a dilapidated independent cinema. Estranged from her father, undermined by her boyfriend, and with her third screenplay recently rejected Kit finds herself badly adrift. Her favourite therapy, renting the appropriate video and scrutinizing the footage for clues on how to behave, no longer provides her with all the answers. But when new ownership threatens the Orange, Kit is forced to confront reality and discovers that help and heroes come in the unlikeliest forms...
