High school senior and internet sensation Madison Nakama seems to have it all: a happy family, good grades, and a massive online following for her pop-culture blog. But when her mother suddenly abandons the family, Madi finds herself struggling to keep up with all of her commitments.
Fandom to the rescue! As her online fans band together to help, an online/offline flirtation sparks with Laurent, a French exchange student. Their internet romance—played out in the comments section of her MadLibs blog—attracts the attention of an internet troll who threatens the separation of Madi’s real and online personas. With her carefully constructed life unraveling, Madi must uncover the hacker’s identity before he can do any more damage, or risk losing the people she loves the most… Laurent included.

Please note: I received a free copy of this book courtesy of Xpresso Book Tours and I voluntarily chose to write a review
This was a fun and fantastic read that had me chuckling just as quickly as I was able to get into it. As much as the unfolding romance was the subject of the book, so also was the relationship between the sisters and all the real implications that living with someone with a disability can have. I felt the book portrayed the relationship honestly and not through the perspective of an idealized perfect world.
Maddie has to learn how to handle the next steps in her life and in her own terms. Balancing the responsibilities of family, job and future is not easy and it was done in a fun and interesting way. I would definitely recommend this one to anyone who is a “true fan” for anything as you’ll definitely find some of your kindred spirits in this book!
Rating: 4 stars!
Who should read it? Folks looking for a light fun read and those who enjoy a good fangirling moment.
