Stranger Than Fanfiction by Chris Colfer
Review by Ella; dreamer, ski racer, writer, and rock climber. Ella lives in SV, Idaho with her mom, dad, cat, dog, gecko, and fish.
High school graduates Mo, Topher, Sam, and Joey embark on a journey where they find themselves and learn how to accept their findings. Along with them is Cash Carter, the 22-year-old star of the hit-show Wiz Kids. The Wizzers (what fans of Wiz Kids call themselves) soon discover that Cash is definitely not the character he plays on TV and has been up to no good lately. The attractions they have planned to go to end up being a bust and Cash has other plans up his sleeve.
Cash soon finds out that they all have something to hide and the road trip takes a twist. They end up being in a near-death rubber band ball situation, camping out in a deserted water park, going to see a band called “Rosemary’s Abortion,” and getting followed by the paparazzi. They soon start to see the not so perfect sides of Cash. Cash’s immature and reckless behavior starts to grow old and the four friends start to tire of him.
When their secrets and the biggest news of their lives threatens to rip them apart, they must find a way to pull themselves back together. They must also accept that their plans for the future and their lives will never be the same. You will not regret diving into the adventure of a lifetime in Stranger Than Fanfiction by Chris Colfer.
