Review: Currently, I am highly amused and entertained! Almost every moment of the book had me either laughing out loud or bashfully reminiscing about my own fangirl moments. This is a lighthearted mystery with enough humor and twists to make it an extremely palatable read. The cast of fangirls are snarky, witty, and oh so gritty. I love it! Goldy Moldasky also doesn’t pull any punches when creating realistic characters, and I respect her for that. She instinctually gets that young adults can be dynamic, abrasive, and lovable all at the same time. While some might balk at the language, I found it to be one of the most realistic depictions of how teens interact and communicate with each other. The only worry I have is its longevity. Moldavsky does an amazing job of harnessing pop culture, current trends, and all the lingo that a fifteen-year-old would relate to, but with trends changing like the wind I feel this title might become dated rather fast. Aside from that, it was awesome and I can’t wait to see what she cranks out next.
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Who Should Snag It: This one is for all you fangirls out there.
