18 posts | 10 read | 26 to read
A Groundhog Day meets Pretty in Pink mashup from author Laurie Boyle Crompton, Pretty in Punxsutawney tells the tale of a girl willing to look beneath the surface to see people for who they really are. Andie is the type of girl who always comes up with the perfect thing to sayafter its too late to say it. Shes addicted to romance moviesokay, all moviesbut has yet to experience her first kiss. After a move to Punxsutawney, PA, for her senior year, she gets caught in an endless loop of her first day at her new school, reliving those 24 hours again and again. Convinced the curse will be broken when she meets her true love, Andie embarks on a mission: infiltrating the various cliques to find the one boy who can break the spell. What she discovers along the way is that people who seem completely different can often share the very same hopes, dreams, and hang-ups. And that even a day that has been lived over and over can be filled with unexpected connections and plenty of happy endings. X

Had to take this back to the library today and realized I never posted about it- hence the dashboard pic. 😁
It took me a little bit to get into this, mainly because Of the way Andie was behaving with the guy she thought she was in love with. Glad I stuck with it though, as Andie has to relive her first day of her Senior year over and over until she gets it right. The book is described as Pretty in Pink meets Groundhog Day, and it really does 👇👇

AmberWB A great job of mixing the two. The overall message about not allowing cliques to define your relationships is a good one. 5mo

If you loved teenage romcoms of the 80s and 90s, then do I have a book for you! Described as a mashup of Groundhog Day meets Pretty In Pink, this is the story of a new girl, seemingly doomed to forever repeat her first day of school in a new town. With every “new” day however, Andie (yes, named after the Pretty In Pink character), manages to find a fresh perspective. It‘s a somewhat predictable take on an old trope, but a fun ride nonetheless!

I mean, I‘ve never seen Pretty in Pink. But the homage was frequently referenced, so even I caught on. 🤪 #howjessreadsin2019

I saw other Littens post good reviews on this book, and it was a Cartwheel but, so naturally I had to visit the book section at Target to grab a copy. #TargetRun

Max🐱says his mom has been too busy lately & neglecting her Litsy family.😾She took pictures of him reading her #ARC of this YA book last week. It's a cute, fun rom-com mashup of Groundhog Day & Pretty in Pink where Andie keeps reliving her first day of senior year at a new high school. Mom liked it (Max says there's no cats!) & loved the Whoppers Popcorn concession stand classics mashup she paired with it. Review/recipe link👇🏻

Krisjericho This quote was enough for me to go add this to my to read list on Goodreads. 😂 9mo
cherinium Oh my! This one struck me where it hurts.💔 My husband thinks Stand By Me is one of the worst movies he has ever seen. It has become a running joke between the two of us, because it is one of my all time favorites. 9mo

It‘s release day for this book, and it‘s available on Hoopla. Pretty in Pink & Groundhog Day happen to be two of my favorite movies, so this was an easy borrow.
