Waiting for Tom Hanks by Kerry Winfrey

If I could use emojis to rate a book, this one would definitely be the “heart-eyed smiley face.” I enjoyed it so much. It’s light and fresh and an easy read. You fall in love with the main character, Annie Cassidy, and her best friend, Chloe, pretty instantly. Annie is obsessed with rom coms and finding her own “Tom Hanks.” Her ultimate goal is to be a screenwriter and be the next Nora Ephron. When, as fate would have it, a movie is being filmed in her town, it seems like getting a job on set is the perfect step to starting that journey.

As Annie lives out her very own rom com, filled with meet cutes and rom com cliches, you’ll be rooting for her to find exactly what she’s hoping for. If you’re looking for a fun, light read, this is the perfect book to pick up!
