Queens of Geek Reviews
If you are in the mood for a super mushy YA contemporary then this would be the absolute perfect pick for you. The story is about 3 best friends Charlie, Taylor and Jamie who are going to their first ever "SupaCon" or comic convention, they are all living in Australia so this is a really big move for them. Taylor and Charlie are the MC's of the story and there is also some cute budding romances in there. Taylor is on the autism spectrum and she has sever social anxiety. Reading through her struggles and how she overcomes them was a really interesting perspective to take for a cute romance and I enjoyed her story line. Everybody gets scared it is how we react to the fear that makes us stronger. She met new people and made friends and I enjoyed seeing that perspective play out. Which I struggle with that, I don't even go into fast food restaurants because that would mean talking to the cashiers face to face. I understood the pain and she even helped on girl through a panic attack and I believe it was unbelievably kind of her. Her love interest is Jamie and reading their adorableness play out was really sweet. I believe Jamie is Latino but it never says his nationality other than he was actually an American living in Australia, but he uses the Spanish word for grandmother, I could be wrong though. Then there is Charlie, she is YouTube famous and she has just came from a small movie that turned really big. She is scared of the limelight basically because she was in a very public relationship and it ended horribly. Then she meets Alyssa and an adorable f/f relationship ensues. This is a really dorky coming of age novel with a lot of movie references, and it is meant for people with a love of fandoms. The only problem I had with it really was there was so much inner dialogue and drama, nobody tells themselves that many times in one day that they should just be themselves. I mean even at 16 and 17 I don't think. It was a good message but it was hammered in to the point that I was skipping passages that said the same thing that had been said 2 pages before. It was cute though, and for a contemporary I really enjoyed it.
YouTube sensation Charlie recently starred in a movie that has seen more success than anyone thought. After a public breakup with her costar Reese, she’s determined to show the world she’s moved on. The perfect place to do this is at SupaCon – a convention where she’ll be a guest meeting fans, but also where she can escape the real world for a while. Shortly after arriving, she meets Alyssa, a fellow YouTube star, who she might have a crush on…it seems the crush may not be one sided either.
