Anyhoo there's a lot going on with this book. There's a character that's bi who also happens to be Chinese and a YouTuber. There's a character that's autistic and has anxiety. I so relate to the social hangover. I know exactly what that is and it isn't fun. A lot of things are covered in this book. Three friends go to a convention that seems to be a mash up of all the conventions out there since it has YouTubers, fans of comics and books.
I really loved the friendship between Charlie, Jamie, and Taylor. I'm sure most of us have at least been involved in one fandom during our lives so that's pretty easy to identify with. I relate to Taylor quite a bit since I have anxiety too and it can be such a pain. I appreciate that the romances didn't overtake the book. It was there but the friendships were focused on a bit more. There is a great cast of characters and oh man do I hate Reese. He's absolutely horrible but I'm sure most of us can think of one person like him. I just wish there was more because I needed more.
During the con something major goes down and as a result you see just how stupid people can be. This is something that I don't understand at all. I can understand it when it comes to fictional characters but I just don't get it when strangers become so entangled with who a person is dating that they get pissed off when the couple breaks up. Charlie and Reese are broken up but fans of Chase pardon me while I roll my eyes want them together. How does that make sense? Maybe this will be a mirror to people who think this way and show them how dumb it is. These people are strangers. You have no say in who they date or stay with. It is one thing to say a couple looks cute but quite another to be upset that a couple didn't reunite. Why do people think this way? I don't understand it at all. I find it extremely bizarre.
