Teen SRC 2018- #famous by Jilly Gagnon


#famous by Jilly Gagnon

So, this book is just about what you would expect out of a normal romance story-NOT!!! Oh, and this book is based on ‘Alex of Target’ (a boy who becomes famous because a girl posted a photo of him online. Anyways, this book is about a girl named Rachel who secretly sneaks a photo of her crush, Kyle, when he was working at Burger Barn. She posts it on social media, and doesn’t seem to think it’s that big of a deal. After all, she only has a few followers. But that photo gets seen worldwide, and girls from all over the world are crushing on Kyle. While Kyle’s getting all the fame and love, Rachel isn’t having that great of a life. She starts getting threats and remarks on her looks-and most of them are bad. Plus, some people even decide that it would be extremely entertaining to send DEATH THREATS to her! But through all the chaos, Kyle and Rachel are starting to develop a friendship-and maybe even something more. But then Rachel starts to doubt Kyle-is he really the nice boy he is in front of the cameras? Or not?

So….yeah. I definitely recommend this book to people who are fans of Sarah Dessen or Jenny Han! 🙂 I loved this book so much! I don’t think the Richmond Public Library has this book, but I don’t know because I borrowed my copy from my friend. ;P  Anyways, I really hope you guys read it (trust me, this book will take you on the ride of your life!)

Teen SRC 2018 – Follow Me Back by A.V. Geiger

Follow Me Back by A.V. Geiger

“I never meant for it to go the way it did. I swear. I just wanted to talk to someone. I didn’t mean to fall in love.” -Quote from Follow Me Back by A.V. Geiger.

So, last week, I went to the library to ask for this book (GOD BLESS MY FRIEND WHO Follow Me Back (Follow Me Back, #1)RECOMMENDED THIS BOOK) but gave up because they were booked. (Pun intended). 🙂 Yeah, I’m really bad with puns. Anyways, lets drive our attention back to the books. So….this book is about a girl named Tessa who has agoraphobia, and her only escape is her Twitter account, filled with love for Eric Thorn. Or, rather, Eric Thorn’s Twitter page. To Tessa, it seems like he’s speaking directly to her when he says….anything, really. But Tessa doesn’t know that Eric is actually extremely scared of his fans, and when a pop star dies in the hands of a fan, Eric sets out to troll Tessa’s Twitter account. But the relationship goes deeper than he thought possible.

I personally loved this book because, well, lets just say I don’t have a lot of social media, but am very fascinated about Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, etc. Or, in other words, Social Media practically makes up my life! 🙂
