Synopsis

Fangirl by Ken Baker

While staring you straight in the eye, far above the tips of her Toms, Josie Brant would swear that she does not like Peter Maxx, the teen sensation who causes every girl within a 100-foot radius to scream at ear-shattering decibels. Even if Josie may completely, totally, and unequivocally be his biggest fan. So when Josie finds out her best friend has won a contest to meet Peter by stealing one of Josie's songs, Josie is overwhelmingly shocked and upset--some of which flies out the window when Ashley introduces Josie to Peter as well. And suddenly, in a whirlwind of Tweets, IMs, texts, and phone calls, Josie finds herself in the middle of a flirtatious friendship that has the potential for complete harmony. But just when everything seems pitch-perfect, the paparazzi flashbulbs explode, along with any notion of a fairy-tale romance. Author Ken Baker, E! Channel's Chief News Correspondent, uses his inside knowledge to craft a novel authentic to the teen pop idol experience with sincere heart and humor.

Reviews

[A] heart-racing, behind-the-music story of love and being true to oneself. -Publishers Weekly The overall basis for the story is unique and charming, and this title is a good addition to libraries serving tweens and teens. -VOYA Baker's access to entertainment titans has given him much to draw upon in his descriptions of the lonely life of a teenage star... -Kirkus Reviews This whimsical YA tome is about every young Belieber's biggest fantasy come true. A girl can dream? Yes. -Ian Drew, Us Weekly Senior Editor Baker gets inside the head and the heart of modern, celebrity-driven teen romance. You either are Fangirl, or she just texted you. -Kurt Schlosser, TODAY.com It's not about Beliebers or Directioners specifically, but all Beliebers or Directioners should get the book. -Ryan Seacrest, host of American Idol Fangirl may hospitalize you! It's hotter than Bieber fever! -Perez Hilton An irresistible wish fulfillment for all ages. -Jon M. Chu, Director of Justin Bieber: Never Say Never We LOVE Fangirl. Once we started to read we couldn't put it down!!! Josie & Peter forever! #bigfansofFANGIRL -Kendall & Kylie Jenner

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
