Synopsis: When BFFs Charlie, Taylor and Jamie go to SupaCon, they know it’s going to be a blast. What they don’t expect is for it to change their lives forever.

Charlie likes to stand out. SupaCon is her chance to show fans she’s over her public breakup with co-star, Jason Ryan. When Alyssa Huntington arrives as a surprise guest, it seems Charlie’s long-time crush on her isn’t as one-sided as she thought.

While Charlie dodges questions about her personal life, Taylor starts asking questions about her own.

Taylor likes to blend in. Her brain is wired differently, making her fear change. And there’s one thing in her life she knows will never change: her friendship with Jamie—no matter how much she may secretly want it to. But when she hears about the Queen Firestone SupaFan Contest, she starts to rethink her rules on playing it safe.


-MY REVIEW-
You guys! This book was so good! You know those books where you read a page, even just a couple paragraphs, and you know that you are going to love that book? This was totally this book for me. I loved all of the characters, and how diverse they were! This book defiantly surprised me, and I am very glad that I read it!

In this book we follow three BFFs, though the book is only told through the perspectives of two of them. There's Charlie, who is a YouTuber and actress who is trying to escape the shadow of her ex boyfriend and costar; there is also Taylor, who has social anxiety, and has feelings for the third BFF, Jamie. The three of them go to a convention, SupaFan, where new relationships are formed, and characters break out of their shells.

I loved Charlie in this book! I thought that it was very cool that we got to see her try to distance herself from her old boyfriend, and also form a new relationship with a girl that she really liked. I loved Charlie's relationship with Alyssa, and I thought that they made a really cute couple, but not as cute as Taylor and Jamie. Taylor and Jamie were just the cutest couple! I was rooting for them from chapter one, and I absolutely loved watching them take their first steps in their relationship.

Even though it was cool to read about Charlie, especially because we are both bisexual, I found an especially soft spot in my heart for Taylor. It was so empowering to read about her facing her fears, and her meeting people like her. It was also cool because I found parts of myself in her, and I loved what she said about anxiety, and not being able to fit in.

So overall I loved this book! This book had a lot of cute, fun, and tear filled moments. With enough movie, video game, and book references to get your inner geek jumping around, this is a highly enjoyable book.
