Publisher Description


From one of the most followed booktubers today, comes Again, but Better, a story about second chances, discovering yourself, and being brave enough to try again.

Shane has been doing college all wrong. Pre-med, stellar grades, and happy parents…sounds ideal -- but Shane's made zero friends, goes home every weekend, and romance…what’s that?

Her life has been dorm, dining hall, class, repeat. Time's a ticking, and she needs a change -- there's nothing like moving to a new country to really mix things up. Shane signs up for a semester abroad in London. She's going to right all her college mistakes: make friends, pursue boys, and find adventure!

Easier said than done. She is soon faced with the complicated realities of living outside her bubble, and when self-doubt sneaks in, her new life starts to fall apart.

Shane comes to find that, with the right amount of courage and determination one can conquer anything. Throw in some fate and a touch of magic - the possibilities are endless.

Heartwarming and Relatable

Again, But Better was a very heartwarming, relatable, and inspiring book. I loved the message, and how the author gave a very important lesson- adventure is out there, but it’s up to you to find it. It was such a beautiful novel to read. One thing I didn’t enjoy as much was how easy it seemed for Shane, the main character, to come out of her shell. Everything came too easy, and since we didn’t know her past very well, we didn’t know how monumental this was for the character arc. In reality, it takes much strength and strong mindsets to put yourself out there. I enjoyed the book very much, but the novel lacked struggle of the protagonist. Christine, a very well-done job on your book.
