Librarian M introduces you to your new favorite fan girl:
Scarlett Epstein Hates it Here by Anna Breslaw
Scarlett Epstein hates it here. Where is here? Pretty much wherever Scarlett happens to be. She’s been coasting through life assuming everything will be better in the future, but her world is rocked when her favorite TV show, Lycanthrope High, is cancelled. She was one of the preeminent fanfic writers for the show and now her whole online world has been thrown into limbo. Her fellow Lycanthrope High fans encourage her to write some original characters and she bases all of her creations on real people from her life including: her crush, the girl her crush is dating, her best friend, and her best friend’s boyfriend. What could go wrong?
Scarlett is a static character at the beginning of the book and you will relish watching her get pushed out of her comfort zone. She’s witty and clever, but clearly needs to reassess her attitude and priorities or risk being caught up in an endless snark cycle. Read this if you like realistic fiction that is heavy on the sarcasm and light on the romance.
