Summer is a favorite time for many. Tanning at beaches, and succulent drinks have been the summer rites since Caesar’s day. Holidays are another reason summer is always welcome, albeit we know ways to beat the undulating heat. Though we don’t need to take a break from cavorting in the outsides, sometimes it’s okay to escape the heat and sit back in the comforts of your home and be in repose while watching brilliant young adult romcoms. Here are seven teen Hollywood romantic comedies. Though there’s a teen tag, people of all ages are going to enjoy these.

1. Boy Meets Girl

This delightful film shows us the life of Ricky, a transvestite with a dream to move to a fashion school in New York, and her best pal Robby, who has always stuck up for her.

The artsy aesthetics of the movie are going to make you fall in love with the story even more.
