Such an amusing book! When a surreptitious picture of school hot guy Kyle is sent by Rachel to her best friend, it unexpectedly goes viral, changing their worlds. Kyle gains positive attention and even a talk show invite, whereas Rachel gains scorn and bullying. Clued into how hard things have been on Rachel, Kyle uses the talk show appearance to get her some positive attention, and soon things spiral into a choreographed pseudo-courtship between the two as a reoccurring segment for the talk show. What makes this book so special is that even though it touches on some tough aspects of real life (anonymous strangers sending a deluge of nasty messages to Rachel combined with in-school bullying), Rachel's narration never loses its sense of humor--a fresh, more resilient take than the customary angst of young adult fiction.

Description


Debut author Jilly Gagnon bursts onto the scene with a story equal parts bite and romance, perfect for fans of Jenny Han and Jennifer E. Smith, about falling for someone in front of everyone.

In this modern day love story: Girl likes boy. Girl snaps photo and posts it online. Boy becomes insta-famous. And what starts out as an innocent photo turns into a whirlwind adventure that forces them both to question whether fame--and love--are worth the price...and changes both of their lives forever.

Told from alternating points of view, #famous captures the sometimes-crazy thrill ride of social media and the equally messy but wonderful moments of liking someone in real life.
