This was a great read, especially for those who are readers or writers of fan fiction.

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.
