Natalie Tort | 4 comments This is my first post - hope it is correct! I am in search of fiction books set in the late 1990s through early 2000s that are full of pop culture references. Looking for some nostalgia-filled novels. Preferably with MC as teen/20 something female, but am really open to anything. Please nothing supernatural/time travel. Don't care when the books were written, but the time period of the books should be in the 1995-2005 general time range.

You might like Friendship Never Ends which is about a group of women friends with flashbacks to their 90s childhood.

Girls on Fire is a recent book set in the 90s with references to music of the time.

Reality Chick - Lauren Barnholdt (it was published in 2006, if that's close enough)

All-American Girl - Meg Cabot (or at least its sequel has plenty, so I assume this is the same way)

Agree, anything by Meg Cabot!
Guitar Girl and Chartbreak both give me 90s music vibes.
Sarah Dessen Sara Manning and Kate Cann also great authors to have a look at.
