seriously romantic: hello, sunshine by leila howland

when becca harrington is rejected from every college she applied to, she takes a cross-country drive with her boyfriend and plans to make it big in l.a. as an actress. of course, her boyfriend dumps her soon after they arrive. and the only place she can afford is a studio apartment that has seen better days. and she keeps getting laughed out of agents reception areas when she tries to get a meeting.

but becca is the kind of person who is relentlessly sunny-natured. she has enthusiasm and a drive to work hard to get where she needs to go in order to make her dreams reality. so even though her stay in l.a. doesn't start off the way she'd hoped, over time she does make progress on her to-do list.

i think what makes hello, sunshine so relatable is becca. she's not perfect, but she means well. she messes up but she owns her choices. there is just something about her that is so irresistible. this is a perfect poolside read, it's sweet and funny and thrives on becca's boundless optimism.

**hello, sunshine will publish on july 11, 2017. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgalley/disney book group (disney-hyperion) in exchange for my honest review.
