It’s no secret that we’re mahooosive Holly Bourne fans here at Maximum Pop! We’re in love with her ‘Spinster Club’ series. In fact, if you ask us, it’s a modern classic that should be read time and time again!

Well good news guys because Holly has a brand new book coming out! Yep, that’s right. Get excited.

The novel’s called ‘It Only Happens in the Movies’ and it’s a gripping tale that tackles universal issues such as, love, sex, divorce and depression.

In ‘It Only Happens in the Movies’, main character, Audrey is soooooo OVER love. Her parents are divorced and Audrey’s taken a job at an independent cinema to get away from the family drama.
