“That’s what we do. We walk a tightrope every day. Getting out the door is a tightrope. Going grocery shopping is a tightrope. Socializing is a tightrope. Things that most people consider to be normal, daily parts of life are the very things we fear and struggle with the most, and yet here we are, moving forward anyway. That’s not weak.”
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, Reese 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.
What I think of it
I was so excited to read this one as I heard so many good stuff about it and honestly I am not disappointed.
This book has so much cuteness in it that it makes it impossible to not like it.
In this book we follow 3 friends who are getting ready for university. Thing is: they live in Australia and all 3 want to enter the same uni in LA. Which causes somewhat stress for Taylor who’s constantly worried that she won’t be accepted and that once everyone is in uni, the whole friendship might change completely (I think we all had that kind of worry when we left high school). So in order to have one last blast as best friends they decide to go to SupaCon, which is in the US. All sort of things happen at the SupaCon which makes this book never boring.
The characters, Mostly Taylor who has autism and therefor a very shy person, are absolute sweethearts. They’re very geeky so perfect if you love TV shows such as Breaking bad, Supernatural, doctor who, and even The Walking Dead as at some point of the book there are (not so real) zombies!
Unfortunately I found the book very predictable. As soon as you get to know all the characters a bit you just know what will happen next which made me not want to reread this is this is why I didn’t rated it 5 stars.
It’s a very nice and light book to read, I promise you you’ll love it if you’re a geek!
