's review

it was ok
bookshelves: contemporary, diverse, library, ya, 2-and-a-half-stars, unpopular-opinion, reviewed, eh

hey, question: why can't almost-good things just be good already?????

this book is sooooooo almost good. it's a great concept! no, ok, it isn't. it's a fine concept with so much amazing diversity and representation (bi rep! autism rep! anxiety rep! people of color!) that you wish you could like it more than ANYTHING but you just can't. for reasons i shall enumerate Right Now, under one extremely catchy and all-encompassing subheading.

This Is Fanfiction For Fictional Characters
- takes place at a convention, following, like, YouTubers and sh*t (blech)
- repetitive kind of amateurish writing
- a lot of interpersonal drama (A LOT of interpersonal drama)
- problems that are solved faster than they can be introduced
- characters that are either perfect, unrealistic, flat, or all of the above
- and, of course, instalove and insta-friendship baby!!!!
- just felt all around p insubstantial. like fluff, but not in the fun way i want contemporaries to be

bottom line: wow i wish i liked this!!! it's so diverse it boggles the mind!!! but it's like reading fanfiction for a fandom i'm not part of. which, as it turns out: a full-on hellscape.
