Funny spin on your typical girl-likes-boy high school scenario, complete with fan fiction and plenty of witty pop-culture references. An easy and fun read!

This YA novel is full of fandom references that characterize my favorite kind of geek-by-proxy fiction.
While I'm not deeply immersed in any fandoms myself, I don't read or write fan fiction and only attend Planet Comicon occasionally, I adore reading about the cool folks who do all of these things.
Scarlett Epstein is someone I would hang out with, or at least I would follow her blog online and leave supportive comments.

Scarlett Epstein is a very real, very intelligent, and very flawed character, but she's written in such a way that it's hard for a reader to not want her as a best friend. Her world crumbles when her favorite television show is canceled, and the writing material for her popular fanfiction disappears. Her online friends push her to build a life outside their fandom, and she finds herself making both small victories and loathsome mistakes. Nevertheless, Scarlett is a believable heroine that is rarely seen in contemporary young adult fiction.

Scarlett hates everything about her New Jersey town, and delights in sharing her snarky, sarcastic comments with anyone who will listen (mostly her best friend, the crabby lady across the street, and her online fanfic friends). As a narrator, she's endearing and sympathetic, even though she's rather prickly. I enjoyed the way the fanfic community was portrayed and her complicated relationship with her divorced parents. But what I loved best is how unabashedly feminist it is without having a capitol-M message. Scarlett was secure in her self-worth, knew what she wanted, and while not always confident in herself, she was confident in her beliefs. A fun, fresh YA novel.
